LactoScope FTA Milk Analyser Reliable, robust milk, cream and dairy liquids composition analysis

Perten LactoScope FTA

  • Accurate, reliable, robust milk, cream and dairy liquids composition analysis
  • All products and parameters included as standard
  • Capable of pumping highly viscous creams
  • Intuitive, easy to use software for analysis of milk and cream

The LactoScope FTA dairy liquids composition analyser meets the challenge of analysing dairy samples with high and variable viscosity. With a high powered pumping system and dual homogeniser it can homogenise and analyse dairy and plant-based samples containing up to 55% fat within 30 seconds.

FTIR analysers like the LactoScope FTA analyse by measuring absorption. Homogenising the sample ensures smaller and uniform particle size allowing reliable and repeatable measurement of products from skimmed milk to extra thick double cream without blocking or breaking down. A wide range of products can be analysed using the instrument from skim to 55% cream, whey concentrates, ice cream, yogurt bases and plant based liquids. The FTA is also capable of accurate analysis of set dairy products such as Crème fraiche, custards and mousses, clotted cream and cream cheese.

Calibration updates are very simple with automatic outlier detection and all LactoScopes are backed by our comprehensive training, calibration and support package. Choosing a LactoScope for your dairy product testing provides you with a high specification milk analyzer at a competitive price.

Products – Raw milk, skimmed milk, pasteurized UHT milk, whey, whey concentrate, cream < 55% fat, yogurt, ice cream
Parameters – Fat, protein, lactose, totals solids, solids non fat, added water, true protein, casein, NPN-CU, free fatty acids, citric acid, density, pH

“Our choice for selecting the FTA was after careful considerations of the benefits of this instrument which outweighed those of similar functional instruments. What we have experienced is a well-built instrument, with low ongoing cost of ownership, needing only small quantities of generic chemicals to operate, no costly bespoke solutions and no need for standardisation. The instruments we have found reliable and robust, Calibrations appear to remain stable over long intervals and calibration verification is very easy, not requiring a calibration expert. Operator interface is easy to use, with operator friendly software”

Analysis of High Fat Cream
Achieving consistent repeatability when analysing high fat cream can be a challenge for some dairy analysers. The LactoScope FTA has an extremely efficient pumping system capable of dealing with highly viscous products.

“We are very happy to have purchased the LactoScope, it is much faster than the previous machine and results are more repeatable, meaning fewer retests during processing and more confidence for production. QCL’s excellent support has been very valuable while moving to the new machine.
