The benchtop NMR MQC analyser addresses a range of industry-specific quality control (QC) requirements using proven, reliable and simple-to-use technology.
MQC applications in the food industry revolve around measurements of total fat content in a wide variety of foodstuffs. One of the most common applications is the measurement of oil in oleaginous seeds such as rape, sunflower, and soybean. Oil or fat content can be measured in dried snack foods and chocolate, and after drying the sample, in a wide range of food products such as meat and prepared foods. A recently developed application is to measure the oil content of palm mesocarp, to assist in developing oil palm varieties with higher oil yield.
In all cases, accurate and precise measurement of oil (or fat) content takes only a few tens of seconds per sample, and does not require solvents, any other chemicals or elaborate sample preparation.
