- Get more result from a single sample for reduced manual work for labelling
- Install and run analysers without manual steps required from onsite personnel
- Reduce the number of analytical solutions
- Use automation software for more effective fat standardisation
Reliance on manual work is an increasingly big issue for meat producers. In this blog post, we take a look at routine analysis and ways to:
Multi-parameter tests – just place sample and step back
Modern near infrared (NIR) analysers can provide a wealth of valuable data from just one test taking less than a minute. Not only is it faster than using external laboratory services, there is no handling and administration of samples involved. For instance, a burger production plant in Italy is making good use of the FOSS FoodScan™ 2 meat analyser to get all the twelve results required to comply with European Union labelling standards with minimal staff and handling involved.
A sample is taken from production and placed directly in the instrument which then displays the results on screen and ready for print if required. See the video report:
