Wine quality analysis

10 August, 2009 by

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.

Glycaemic index and resistant starch analysers

10 August, 2009 by

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.

Food protein analyser

09 June, 2009 by

All proteins in food contain the amino acids Arginine, Histidine and Lysine and CEM’s iTAG technology can bind to the three amino acids.

Electronic noses and tongues

09 June, 2009 by

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.

Dairy milk analyser

09 June, 2009 by

The Miris Dairy Milk Analyser can be used to analyse both milk and cream for: fat, protein, lactose (SNF), dry matter and added water.

Wine chemistry test kits

09 June, 2009 by

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.

Food allergen test kit

09 June, 2009 by

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.

SMS 100 mercury analyser

09 June, 2009

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.
