In order to make the analysis of milk samples easier, Foss has improved the quality assurance abilities for its existing milk testing equipment.

Known as the MilkoScan FT 120, the re-designed system aims to assure a higher product quality and save on human resources.

When a quality assurance module is installed on the system, it is possible to get more details about the samples, rather than just, for example, obtaining the fat percentage.

The quality assurance module consists of a software package that features many value-adding functionalities, such as detecting whether it is a normal sample as well as spectral matching. In addition, it is said to be fast and cheap to use the software, as there is no need for reference analysis.

The system is said to be easy to use and can, for example, test if cow milk has been added to sheep, goat and buffalo milk, or find out if cleaning materials are mixed with the milk.

A message is instantly displayed on the monitor if the products do not meet the required specifications. Wrong additives can also be detected.

The system can also match an actual sample with previous samples in the database, so it can create the best possible calibration.Due to these functionalities, the company claims that human error will be considerably decreased and control procedures more efficient. Whenever a mismatch occurs it is instantly notified on the screen, allowing action to be taken for correction.

Based in Denmark, Foss​ provides and supports dedicated analytical solutions which analyse and control the quality and production of agricultural, food, pharmaceutical and chemical products to the enhancement of our customers' business.
