The medical environment and practice is ever-changing. Testing, verification and monitoring is no longer regarded as a quality parameter but instead as a risk mitigation strategy. Mätt Solutions partner with Miris for Human Milk Constituent analysis solutions, Monnit for IoT facility monitoring, Mocon for burst / leak testing, Atago for clinical refractometer and HiPoint for incubation solutions.


Can I measure micronutrients in human milk?

Miris HMA™ measures the energy, fat, carbohydrate and protein content in human milk enabling clinicians to adapt fortification to the actual micronutrient content of the milk.  

To ensure adequate nutrition for preterm infants, fortification is often necessary. However, human milk naturally contains a high variability in protein, fat, and carbohydrates. By fortifying human milk at a standard amount based on mother’s own milk for example, the variability in micronutrients can be minimized.

Can I monitor rooms, fridges, freezers, water level, water presence in terms of flooding all on the same network?

For the facility director, supervisor, or manager of a health care institution looking to boost efficiency, Monnit is an ideal Internet of Things (IoT) solution.

Monnit’s data logging solutions can help manage the complete range of compliance needs, including those related to clinic and hospital refrigerators and freezers, door status monitoring, and water detection monitoring, with complete CFR 21 part 11 compliance. 

How can I test to ensure Safe & High Quality Healthcare Packaging?

Medical device packaging protects sensitive product, patient safety, and your brand. From healthcare packaging R&D to manufacturing. When presenting healthcare products to the market, packaging raw materials need to be of the highest quality. The challenge in medical packaging design is to ensure these packages have sound integrity and the product packaged product has a long shelf life.

Matt Solutions with Mocon Ametek offer package testing services and instrumentation to ensure the integrity and functionality of medicinal packaging from R&D to production. Our package leak and burst detectors are used routinely for USP 1207 package integrity testing compliance.

What is the easiest most cost-effective leak detection solution that that conforms to ASTM methodology?

Haug Pack-Vac® Leak Detectors allow the user to run a vacuum test in less than 30 seconds. For most packages, the unit is partly filled with water. drop your sealed package in, close the lid, and engage the vacuum device then watch for bubbles.

The Pack-Vac® Leak Detectors can be used to perform a allot of test conforming to ASTM test methods for detecting leaks and seal integrity.

·       ASTM D3078 Standard Test Method - Determination of Leaks in Flexible Packaging by Bubble Emission

·       ASTM D6653 Standard Test Method - Determining the Effects of High Altitude on Packaging Systems by Vacuum Method

·       ASTM D4169 Standard Practice - Performance Testing of Shipping Containers and Systems 

·       ASTM D4991 Standard Test Method - Leakage Testing of Empty Rigid Containers by Vacuum Method 

·       ASTM D5094 Standard Test Methods - Gross Leakage of Liquids from Containers with Threaded or Lug-Style Closures 

·       ASTM F2096 Standard Test Method - Detecting Gross Leaks in Packaging by Internal Pressurization (Bubble Test) 

Can I easily test concretion in urine, blood serum or plasma?

A solution's refractive index depends on its concentration. Therefore, its concentration can be determined from its refractive index. The refractive index of blood serum or plasma is mainly determined by its protein concentration, as proteins are one of the major constituents.

The Atago Clinical Refractometer Pal 11S  instrument is designed to measure total protein in serum using the refractive index method. The protein scale was developed following extensive clinical analyses pf results obtained from over 1400 cases by Professor of Biochemistry at Tokyo Woman's Medical University, Dr. Matsumura.

The Atago Pal Urine is key in measuring urine to avoid dehydration before it leads to serious complications.

Can I test the seal integrity of blister packs?

Yes, blister packs, used to keep individual doses of medication or supplements safe until use can be tested for seal integrity using the “blue dye test” The test is made by submerging a package into a blue dye solution, the test chamber is placed under a vacuum that forces air from any openings within the pack. After returning to ambient pressure, the dye will penetrate and be evident within the pack should any holes be present. 

For consistent, reproducible and reliable blue dye tests Matt Solutions is able to supply and support the Dansensor H20. 

If the seal strength is important as part of quality control parameters or when designing new packaging, then the Dansensor Lippke 5000 can help with Burst, leak, creep, bubble and combined test options 

What is a blue dye test?

A blue dye test refers to a commonly used method of checking the seal integrity of all types of blister packs used in the nutraceutical/pharmaceutical industry.  To complete a test, a sample blister pack in placed in a chamber with coloured water, a vacuum is drawn in the chamber and then released. 

If there are any leaks in the blister pack, the vacuum will draw the headspace gas out of the pack, and when the vacuum is released there will be the ingress of (easily visible) blue water. 

One instrument capable of completing a “blue dye test” is the Dansensor H2O
