SI Instruments has developed a manual handling kit, suitable for testing a variety of job tasks in the workplace to maintain a safe environment for employees.
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.
Applied Biosystems has announced the certification of its TaqMan Salmonella enterica Detection Kit for the identification of Salmonella in peanut butter through the Emergency Response Validation program of the AOAC Research Institute.
Testo has a range of HACCP-certified pH instruments: the testo 206 range as well as the testo 205.
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.
The CarboQC is a portable, robust measuring instrument for the determination of dissolved CO2 in beverages. The analysis is based on the multiple volume expansion method to eliminate the influence of other dissolved gases such as air or nitrogen. The instrument is accurate, simple to operate, requires low sample volumes and provides rapid results.
Testo has a wide range of products which are certified and are effective instruments in meeting HACCP standards.
All proteins in food contain the amino acids arginine, histidine and lysine and CEM’s iTAG technology can bind to the three amino acids.
Texture analysis is primarily concerned with the evaluation of mechanical characteristics where a material is subjected to a controlled force from which a deformation curve of its response is generated. These mechanical characteristics in food can be further subdivided into primary and secondary sensory characteristics.
The sterility control of food product can be monitored using the QMI Tru-Test aseptic sampling system.
BioControl Systems has introduced VIP Gold pathogen detection kits. VIP Gold represents the latest achievement in lateral flow technology. It merges advanced particle design and highly specific antibodies in a multi-test format. The result is a simple, easy-to-use system providing rapid and accurate detection of foodborne pathogens.
CEM has introduced the EasyPrep Vessel for use in the Mars Microwave Reaction System. EasyPrep has no fittings or membranes and is simpler to assemble and use than many other high-pressure/high-temperature vessels.
Hyperspectral imaging can be used for applications ranging from process monitoring to moving webs of product across conveyor lines to food safety and quality control where precise colour measurement is critical to the application.
The Series 2000 near infrared transmission analyser is a diode array spectrometer that uses a selection of sample cells to collect near infrared transmission spectra through liquid, suspensions and emulsions, such as lotions and creams. The Series 2000 scans the wavelength range from 720-1100 nm in transmission and transflectance modes. Organic molecules containing O-H, C-H and N-H bonds exhibit strong NIR absorbance bands within this region of the electromagnetic spectrum.
SI Instruments has released TehloTest, a wireless edition of its Head Load Tester which is used in wineries throughout Australia.
