PerkinElmer, Inc., a global leader committed to innovating for a healthier world, has announced that it has launched the DA 6200™ NIR analyzer, which will help meat and olive processors to conduct quality and process control more accurately, easily and quickly.
The DA 6200 broadens PerkinElmer’s advanced portfolio of food testing solutions, which spans from plant genetics, crop health and nutritional and compositional testing, to adulteration and food fraud detection, as well as pesticide, heavy metal and solvent analysis.
The DA 6200 analyzer, part of PerkinElmer’s Perten product offerings, is based on next generation Diode Array Near-Infrared Transmission Spectroscopy (NIR) technology, which in 30 seconds provides accurate test results of fat, moisture and protein levels in a sample – as well as collagen, salt and ash. This accuracy and speed also translate to very large, inhomogeneous samples.
Using the DA 6200 analyzer, producers of sausage, ground meat or poultry products will be able to get the highest yield from the incoming unprocessed meat. In addition, they can improve consistency in production and verify compliance with regulatory and brand standards for quality of the final product.
Olive oil producers will leverage the analyzer to verify olive quality, predict the potential yield of oil and optimize the oil extraction process.
