Dairy is on the agenda for US group Advance Instruments as it seeks
to bring greater innovation to industry testing at
the 2007 annual meeting of the Institute of Food Technologists
(IFT) to be held next week.

The company will use the exhibition to reveal the findings of two new studies into dairy processing, as well as unveiling a number of testing technologies it claims can drastically improve product quality. With the dairy industry constantly striving for innovative new products that meet consumer demand for health and wellness, quality and safety are becoming increasingly important. As such the group will reveal the results of two studies that focus on the importance on stringent quality testing within the industry. The first entitled "The Effect of Bronopol on the Freezing Point and Impedance of Milk Samples"​, aims to asses the affects of adding preservatives to milk samples during cryoscopic testing. In its other presentation, "The Effect of Raw Milk Storage Conditions on Freezing Point Depression, pH, and Impedance", Advance Instruments will concentrate on how storage conditions can adversely affect raw milk. Along with these tests, the group will also use the meeting to showcase some of its own technologies that it claims offer the industry a number of benefits over existing testing methods. These include its latest Combiscope Autolab, which according to the company offers the first ever fully automated system for dairy herd improvement. Another product on display will be its Fluorophos Test System, designed for heightened sensitivity in fluorimetric testing - a method set to become increasingly important to European dairy producers. Just last month, flurometric testing was adopted by the EU as the new standard to assess pasteurization in milk products is correctly observed. The Advanced 4250 Single-Sample Cryoscope, is said to revolutionize the freezing point method to ensure a highly accurate reading for levels of added water within milk. The group's Bag Mixer technology offers a sample preparation system that mimics the action of the stomach to provide better microbiological analysis.
