MG Labs

We supply services ranging from pro-active consultation to on-site technical support and troubleshooting. Use our expertise to help you choose the right material for your equipment, processes and end products. We perform real-life seal prototypes in an in-lab thermoforming line, siliconising evaluations and many other tests. We are fast-moving, reliable, up to date and ready to help you solve any packaging challenge.

Quality control

Our quality control lab includes an extensive Microbiology lab, where we perform bioburden tests to check microbial levels in our paper.
