Due to the very low headspace requirement of the CheckMate 3 headspace analyzers it is able to measure the residual oxygen level in many pharmaceutical products packed under protective atmosphere (e.g. nitrogen). The CheckMate 3 with zirconia sensor only requires a 2 ml headspace in order to ensure valid residual oxygen content.

The CheckMate 3 with zirconia sensor only requires a 2 ml headspace in order to ensure valid residual oxygen content.

Thus, the CheckMate 3 is a cost-efficient alternative to the typical gas chromatographs used today in the packaging of pharmaceutical products. Typical products that can be tested with the CheckMate 3 headspace analyzer are:

  • Injection vials
  • Lyophilized vials
  • Liquid vials
  • Headspace vials
  • Pouches, for e.g. nicotine patches
