The use of optical oxygen measurement method for quality control and development of opaque packagin






The work presents an optical method of measuring the amount of oxygen using selective fluorescence quenching and its application to assess the quality of opaque packaging. The principle of the method, calibration of oxygen sensors, advantages and limitations as well as areas of application in packaging were presented. In addition, as part of the work, an experimental comparison of oxygen measurements made by fluorescence in transparent and opaque packaging was performed, using a special invasive adapter and dedicated measurements needles. On this basis, the usefulness of the optical method for assessing the quality of opaque packaging, which accounts for a significant share of packages used in modern packaging, was assessed.
