Permeability leader Versaperm has introduced a sensitive new instrument to measure vapour permeability for a wide range of gases, including O2, Nitrogen, Anaesthetics, Hydrocarbon-based and water vapour.

Most pharmaceuticals, packages and equipment are subject to gas leaching which can lead to serious consequences, such as drug potency and equipment problems. Versaperm’s new version MkVI meter can measure this for materials, finished packages, seals and equipment - against an enormous range of commonly used gases.

The Versaperm meter can determine vapour permeability for almost any material, giving results in as little as 30 minutes for some gases. Conventional gravimetric measurement takes days or even weeks and is significantly less accurate and repeatable.

The new instrument is simple to use, offering highly automated computerised control. It can be configured to cope with several samples at a time, giving results that may be as accurate to a few part per million (with some samples a few parts per hundred million).

Versaperm also offers a laboratory testing service for companies who test too few samples to make the purchase of equipment viable.
