Meat comes - like all natural materials - in a wide range of compositional properties. For the meat industry, it is essential to know the composition of raw meat and other ingredients in order to adapt the recipes for a high quality production of sausages, salami or other types of meat products. In addition, the testing of the finished meat products before delivery to the end customer is a crucial step for consumer satisfaction.
Bruker Optics easy to use FT-NIR spectrometers helps you analyze (with little to no sample preparation) the composition of your sample. No glassware is used for the measurement, making it a safe technology. The meat or sausage is filled in a disposable polystyrene petri dish and placed on the instrument. At the push of a button, the spectrometer evaluates your sample and displays results for protein, fat, moisture and salt content simultaneously and in less than a minute.
