MINNEAPOLIS — Minneapolis-based testing instruments maker Mocon Inc. has reorganized into four global business units.

The units are: Permeation (Minneapolis), Package Testing (Ringsted, Denmark), Industrial Analyzers (Lyons, Colo.) and Microbial Detection (Minneapolis).

Chief Operating Officer Don DeMorett said in a news release that the reorganization was driven by organic growth, as well as recent acquisitions.

The company has grown from a manufacturer of permeation equipment for packaging applications into also providing products and services for food safety, medical device, pharmaceuticals, mud logging, gas monitoring, aroma/odor analysis and more.

Key product offerings under the Permeation banner include instruments for analyzing film structures and packaging for oxygen, carbon dioxide and water vapor transmission.

Package Testing includes headspace analysis instruments (oxygen, carbon dioxide and carbon monoxide), leak detection, package integrity, seal and burst testers, modified atmosphere gas analysis, as well as in-line gas blenders and leak detectors.

The Industrial Analyzers business unit offers gas chromatography and continuous environmental air and water quality monitors.

The Microbial Detection unit includes the GreenLight food safety product line, which provides automated rapid, precise, same-day microbial count results.
