Dairy Milk Analysis

LactoScope™ FT-A Liquid Dairy Products Analyzer

The LactoScope FT-A is our most versatile mid-infrared analyzer capable of testing a wide range of dairy product: milks, creams, whey, concentrates, ice-creams and yoghurt mixes. The latest hardware innovations allow to easily test the most challenging dairy products, such as creams with up to 55% fat and other viscous products. With a typical accuracy under 1% CV, a measuring time of 30 seconds, low cost of ownership and minimal downtime, this instrument is the preferred choice of the large processors and dairy laboratories.

• Accurate and user friendly

• Automatic clean cycles and zeros

• Sample pre-heat

• Full-spectrum analysis

• Includes calibrations

• Intuitive software

• Results 24/7

Patented Dynascan™ interferometer in the FTIR Spectrophotometer

The LactoScope spectrometer incorporates PerkinElmer’s DynascanTM interferometer, the OpticsGuardTM technology and molecular sieve as an optic compartment desiccant.

The automatic clean cycles and zeros maintain the sample pumping unit and the measuring cell in optimal conditions, therefore improving the overall reliability and accuracy of the instrument.

Sample pre-heat and homogenization standardize the temperature and particle size of the fat globules before measurement.

Full-spectrum analysis enables quantification of all components.

The LactoScope includes the calibrations to analyze raw, standardized and processed milks, whey, and cream. 

The Intuitive Results Plus software provides rapid implementation with minimal training, is designed to make analysis as rapid and secure as possible and is compatible with LIMS systems.

The PerkinElmer NetPlus™ cloud solution enables remote configuration and monitoring of the LactoScope. Using NetPlus the LactoScope can easily be set up in a master/satellite network.
