MPL3115A2 to measure pressure in a sealed container

The MPL3115A2 is listed as a absolute barometric pressure sensor / altimeter and has a measuring range of 20kPa to 110kPa.

 

I would need to obtain readings @ 100Hz but that does not seem to be a problem as the sensor has a output data rate of 100Hz in polling mode.

 

Can I use this sensor in an application that needs to measure the level vacuum in a sealed container, the vacuum would not be more than 50% or around 7.5psi absolute?.
