PerkinElmer launches new FT-IR platform for quality and safety testing of dairy foods
The LactoScope 300 system, which expands PerkinElmer’s FT-IR dairy portfolio, detects key markers such as fat, protein and lactose levels in milk, cream and whey. Adulterants including urea, ammonium sulfate, maltodextrine, sucrose and water can also be detected in raw and processed milk.
Step-by-step pre-developed workflows and intuitive touch-screen and software interfaces enable users to simply place liquid samples into the instruments, push a single button and receive results on a 12-inch touch screen in under 45 seconds, allowing 60 samples to be run each hour. With the streamlined approach, new users can also learn to perform mission critical analyses in seconds.
“Dairy, wine, and other liquid foods are staple items on tables around the world and it should be simple to have access to important data to help create products that are safe and perform as expected,” said Greg Sears, VP and GM of food at PerkinElmer.
“Having intuitive, affordable and powerful testing and analysis solutions like the LQA300 and LactoScope 300 FT-IR systems gives customers the insights to make more informed, real-time decisions and take actions to improve quality, reduce waste and meet both regulatory and consumer demands.”
The new FT-IR platform is part of PerkinElmer’s food analysis portfolio spanning dairy, beverages, grain, seafood, meat, produce, oils and spices, and cannabis testing workflows.
