Highly accurate at-line Instrument for a range of dairy products
FT-NIR spectrometer ensuring highly stable results
Long term calibration stability
No reagents required
The Quant at-line instrument can be used for a wide range of dairy product analysis both at-line, in a production environment and also within the laboratory including;
Achieving quick stability after churn start up and cream silo changes can be assisted by the moisture and salt measurements from the Quant instrument.
Accurate and consistent analysis of cheese curd for fat, moisture, protein and salt.
A wide range of dairy powders can be analysed using the Quant analyser including milk, whey, standardised powders and added value products both in process and finished product measurements. Multiple channels can be added to the Quant to ensure compliance to specific customer specifications and traceability.
“The Quant instrument is highly suitable for process testing and not just for use in a laboratory, with sample prep time to results in just minutes. No reagents, no mess, just results. The accuracy and stability of the instrument calibrations give us reliable results, needing only relatively few reference cross checks to ensure ongoing validation of the results accuracy.
A driving choice for the Quant for me, was the ability of it to measure salt in cheese curd with accuracy and consistency. We accurately measure salt (to 2 d.p.), fat, moisture and protein, it’s good to hand over to process operators for real time, line side sample measurement of our curd production.”
