The Goldstein Packaging Laboratory

The Goldstein Packaging Laboratory

The activities in the Goldstein Packaging Laboratory comprise of two major areas:
1. Research and Development
2. Service to Industry.

1. Research and Development
The focus in recent year has been on developing and characterization of “Active Packages” as well as Package/Product Interaction.

Among the different kinds of Active Packages, Antimicrobial (AM) packaging (and primarily those containing natural AM compounds) and Oxygen Scavenging were studied most.
Packaging/Product interaction includes studies on the effects of the package on the product (shelf life, off-odors off-flavors) and on the effect of the product on the package (properties retention).  

 2. Services to industry
a)    Consultation on all aspects of packaging, including troubleshooting.

b)    Evaluation of the suitability of packages for contact with food.
c)     Evaluation of packages for their suitability for dangerous materials and for fragile products.
d)    Evaluation of gases (Oxygen, water vapor, and other gases) permeability.
e)    Evaluation of the mechanical and physical properties evaluation of packages and packaging         materials.

The Russell Berrie Nanoparticles and Nanometric Systems Characterization Center

The Russell Berrie Nanoparticles and Nanometric Systems Characterization Center

The Russel Berrie nanoparticle, thermal and mechanical system characterization center located at the faculty of Biotechnology & Food Engineering Technion (1st flour).
The center focuses on the characterization of nanoparticles and nanosystems and recently on thermal and mechanical properties of the complex system.

The center is aimed to serve Technion users as well as other academic or industrial clients and offers a wide range of equipment for testing and research goals:

-Particle size analyzer based on dynamic light scattering (DLS) and on laser diffraction technique.

-Thermal analysis: DSC – Differential Scanning Calorimetry, TGA – Thermogravimetric Analysis.

-Mechanical Testing: Universal Materials Testing Machine, Rheometer.

Atomic Force Microscope – (AFM) measurement of surface topography and other related properties of solid surfaces, with atomic resolution.
