Novasina LabMaster-AW Meter

This is a highly accurate water activity meter. It uses, noncontact infrared sampling technology, making it very flexible in testing all kinds of food products. Water activity measurements are important to maintain high product quality safety and shelf life. By measuring water activity, it is possible to predict which microorganisms will or will not be a potential source of spoilage.

A & D MX50 Moisture Analyser

An ultra-accurate moisture content analyser, utilising a super hybrid weighing sensor and halogen lamp with a uniquely designed secondary radiation assist filter. This allows for shorter drying measurement times. Dying can be conducted between 50 - 200°C following multiple heating curves and moisture loss can be measured up to the nearest 0.01% loss.

FOSS Milkoscan Minor Milk Analyser

Fast and accurate measuring of product composition for different species milk or cream. Rapidly measures up to six key quality parameters (Fat, Protein, Lactose, Total Solids, Solids- non-Fat, Freezing Point Depression) from a single small sample via a filter-based IR Technology.

KEM AT-500 Potentiometric Titrator

Used to perform accurate and user-friendly potentiometric titrations including acid-base, redox, precipitation, chelatometric and non-aqueous titrations. With optional peripherals, it also can perform photometric, polarization and surfactant titrations. Example analysis include determination of Salt (NaCl), Vitamin C and SO 2 content.

Sherwood MKII 926 Chloride Analyser

Designed to measure the level of chloride ions, the M926 Chloride analyser can be used for working out the level of salt (NaCl) in food and dairy product. The instrument offers the immediate conversion of Chloride content into mg% salt of the original sample.

Stable Microsystems TA.Xtplus Texture Analyser

An instrument capable of measuring physical attributes within or expressed from food and drink products such as hardness, fracturability, adhesiveness, gel strength and extensibility. The TA.XTplus is commonly used to measure and quantify fundamental, empirical and imitative tests in both compression and tension, covering those relating to food texture analysis, ingredient properties as well as effects of rheology of solid, semi-solid, viscous liquid, powder and granulate materials.

Fisher UV-Visable Spectrophotometer

Used to measure the amount of ultraviolet or visible light absorbed by a test sample. Product applications include quality control, product quantification and analysis of sample purity.

Brookfield DV-11+ Programmable Viscometer

Designed to measure fluid viscosity at given shear rates through the use of immersed driven spindles through a calibrated spring. The viscous drag of the fluid against the spindle is measured by the spring deflection. Spring deflection is measured with a rotary transducer. The measurement range of a DV-II+ is determined by the rotational speed of the spindle, the size and shape of the spindle, the container the spindle is rotating in, and the full-scale torque of the calibrated spring.

Turbiscan CLASSIC MA2000 Analyser

This is a multiple light scattering device for measure and analyse concentrated emulsion and suspension instability, within food and drink products. The instrument optimizes pre-preparation work quickly, reliably, and robustly through in-depth understanding of unstable phenomena.

FOSS Soxtec 2047 SoxCap System

Hydrolysis apparatus from FOSS, for the hydrolysis of fat as preparation for a Soxtec system. No contact with hot acid during hydrolysis, filtration or washing. The entire analysis takes place in a closed vessel.

KEM DA-510 Density Meter

Density, specific gravity, ABV, brix or concentration of liquid sample can be measured by the DA-510.

Seward Stomacher 400 Circulator

The Seward Stomacher allows for reliable and consistent homogenisation of food and beverage samples without the risk of cross contamination.

FOSS 2100 Kjeltec System Distillation Unit

The Kjeltec system allows for a simple and reliable solution for safe semi-automated steam distillation processing.

WITT Oxybaby Gas Analyser

Cordless handheld oxygen or combined oxygen and carbon dioxide gas analyser for checking modified atmospheres in food packs. A suitable instrument for portable, fast and accurate sample tests of the headspace at the packaging machine, in stores or in laboratories.

VeriVide DigiEye Colour& Texture Assessment Imagery System

This is a non-contact digital imaging software and hardware that can be used to measure and assesses food and beverage products instantly. It provides an objective process for carrying out quantifiable colour or textural assessments on all kinds of food and beverage products.

Brunel Microscope

A table top microscope with a range of magnifications (x100, x40, x10, and x4)

ATLAS SUNTEST XLS+ Lightfastness Testing Booth

This instrument is used to imitate the effects of light and temperature on and around food and beverage products during shelf life in a significantly short period of time. Intrinsic properties such as colour or textural of food and beverages can changes due to excessive light and can take place over many months. The Suntest can emulate the effects of months of light within days allowing for quicker product assessment prior to launch.
