Enotech is a random access analyser for automatic, multiparameter analysis for enzymatic and colorimetrical tests for process control of vinification as well as the quality of the end product. Parameters that can easily be automated include glucose/fructose, malic acid, acetic acid, free and total SO2, copper, amino nitrogen and ammonia nitrogen as well as many more.
Stadvis has signed a worldwide licence to commercialise an automated technique developed by the CSIRO Food Futures National Research Flagship to measure glycaemic index (GI) and resistant starch (RS) in foods and cereals.
The Foss WineScan analyser uses Fourier Transform Infrared (FTIR) spectroscopy to achieve multiple measurements of grape must, must under fermentation and wine in around 30 s. The timely availability of this information supports decisions such as when to pick grapes, how to control fermentation or when to bottle.
Electronic noses and tongues have been developed for taste and odour sensory analysis in both quality control and product development applications. They have particular application in the food, beverage, flavour, fragrance and packaging sectors. As with human assessment, the instruments use comparative analysis of odour or taste fingerprints. The instruments are ‘trained’ to learn tastes and odours by analysis of samples verified by human taste or odour sensory panels and once trained are able to identify presented samples routinely.
All proteins in food contain the amino acids Arginine, Histidine and Lysine and CEM’s iTAG technology can bind to the three amino acids.
The Miris Dairy Milk Analyser can be used to analyse both milk and cream for: fat, protein, lactose (SNF), dry matter and added water.
The Romer Labs AgraQuant Food Allergen ELISA test kit can be used to detect food allergens sensitively in a wide range of processed foods and raw materials. The user-friendly test kits include all ready-to-use reagents.
Accuvin wine chemistry test kits are small enough to be carried in the pocket and need no sample preparation, glassware or even operator training; just follow the instructions enclosed with every kit.
The SMS 100 mercury analyser has been designed to improve the detection and measurement of mercury in solids and liquids and help minimise the need for complex sample preparation. The SMS 100 helps accurately measure mercury at low levels in a variety of sample types, enabling environmental laboratories, municipalities, power utilities, waste producers and food companies to comply with regulations and protect consumers.
ESA Biosciences has developed a first stable, sensitive and robust analytical system that enables routine measurement of thiols, thioethers, disulfides and other sulfur-containing compounds.
The SC-CSRS 300 Salt Converter Cation Self-Regenerating Suppressor is an eluent suppressor that can be used in place of a CSRS 300 or CAES cation suppressor in cases where increased sensitivity is required for the determination of ammonium and amines using conductivity detection. The design of the SC-CSRS 300 provides increased backpressure tolerance and maximum leak tolerance. The regenerant sweep-out design provides low noise and fast start-up.
The Micromeritics AutoChem 2920 automated catalyst characterisation system is a fully automated chemisorption analyser that enables a wide array of studies of chemical adsorption and temperature-programmed reactions. It can acquire information about the physical properties of the catalyst, catalyst support or other materials, and can determine catalytic properties such as percentage of metal dispersion, active metal surface area, acid strength, surface acidity, distribution of strength of active sites, BET surface area and more.
Aqua Diagnostic’s PeCOD COD analysers are a new technology for measuring COD and provide users with the benefits of real-time process control and environmental monitoring in industries involved in wastewater treatment, using coolant water or water feedstock or seawater in their manufacturing processes.
The Abraxis Melamine Detection Kit is validated for use on MDS Analytical Technologies’ SpectraMax absorbance microplate readers with SoftMax Pro 5 GxP analytical software, which includes FDA 21 CFR Part 11 compliance.
Up to 40 high-pressure vessels per run can be processed with the MarsXpress High-Throughput Microwave Reaction System from CEM. MarsXpress offers intelligent and adaptive continuous temperature and pressure feedback control for all vessels all the time without the need for temperature and pressure connections.
