New DairyScan for rapid tests on fat and moisture in cheese: now everyone has the power
announces the DairyScanTM, a new analytical instrument for testing the fat and
moisture content of cheese during production and at final product release. The
small, handy and easy-to-use analyser is aimed especially at smaller cheese
makers producing less than 7000 tons per year.
A test with the DairyScan takes
just 45 seconds, allowing busy producers to spot out-of-spec production before
it impacts their yield and product quality. No chemicals or disposables are
involved in the test and there’s
no need for skilled lab technicians. The
user just places the sample and pushes the start button.
Proven technology makes it easy to install and run
The DairyScan is supplied with ready-to-use calibrations for a quick
installation and start-up. These are the same as those already used with a more
sophisticated analyser called the FoodScan which is used by dairy producers
around the world. The calibrations are
based on a huge database of over 40,000 samples, making for a highly robust and
stable calibration that can accommodate a wide variety of samples and ensures stable high performance analysis over
Robust construction coupled with
ongoing FOSS local support makes it an easy-to-own solution.
for both liquid milk and cheese samples
The new DairyScan makes a perfect
partner to another small and easy-to-use analyser from FOSS, the MilkoScanTM Mars
which offers rapid tests of butter
fat, proteins and other parameters in liquid milk.
The MilkoScan Mars can perform
quality standardisation of milk before use in the cheese production process
while the DairyScan covers the production process and product release. The MilkoScan
Mars can also be used to screen milk for accidental or deliberate adulteration,
giving a warning if anything looks suspicious.
analysers use infrared technology, but in different forms to give optimal tests
for the different sample types. FOSS
Dairy Market Manager, Dorthe Bisgaard Oldrup said: “We have decided to offer
two easy and affordable analysers instead of one multi-function solution
because it gives users the best technology for the job to be done - the higher
the accuracy, the more users can profit with better quality and with tighter
control of production.”
