Thermo Scientific NextGuard X-ray detection platform

Wednesday, 29 May, 2013 | Supplied by: Thermo Fisher Scientific


The Thermo Scientific NextGuard X-ray detection platform has been designed to enable food processors to meet the global demand for more thorough inspection for product contamination.

According to the company, the platform combines three key attributes - performance, simplicity of use and price point - to make X-ray product detection more affordable for food, pharmaceutical and other applications.

Based on Thermo Fisher testing, the NextGuard offers up to 50% better detection sensitivity than the company’s previous X-ray system, the EZx. The system is designed to be reliable, easy to install and compact (it is 1 m long). It comes equipped with intuitive software.

The system includes: multiple contaminant detection algorithms to increase detection probability; QA check mode, automating operator audits and record keeping; built-in internet remote support hardware and software; an easily removable conveyor that facilitates quick cleaning and service; and on-machine reject image storage for up to 90 days.

Detector diagnostics warn when preventative maintenance is needed, while the system’s wraparound detector is intended to reduce ‘blind spots’. The system allows users to modify, test and change detection parameters on the fly.

The series’ first model, the NextGuard C330, is designed for packaged product contaminant detection and complements the Thermo Scientific Xpert and POWERx X-ray inspection systems.
