Unity Scientific, Process Sensors, CHOPIN Technologies and AMS Alliance showcase advanced analyzer solutions for food applications at Anuga Foodtec 2018

Cologne, Germany, (March 20, 2018) – Unity Scientific, Process Sensors, CHOPIN Technologies and AMS Alliance, all KPM Analytics companies, will present their advanced analyzer solutions for food, environmental and agricultural applications at Anuga Foodtec 2018, Hall 5.2 Booth A- 010 in Cologne, Germany, March 20th – March 23rd. Used for process and quality control in dairy, beverage, cereal, snack & baked goods, milling, and other food processing applications, the solutions can monitor and improve product quality, help maintain brand integrity, archive data and reduce costs.


Unity Scientific will be demonstrating the SpectraStar XT Analyzer. With the best performance in the industry, the XT is a robust, easy-to-use NIR analyzer for both laboratory and at-line environments in the food, agricultural and ingredient markets. The XT includes patented TRUE ALIGNMENT® Spectroscopy technology which automatically aligns the instrument to reference standards keeping it in peak accuracy.

The SpectraStar XT produces accurate, repeatable results in 30 seconds, measuring moisture, fat, protein, total sugar and other properties from samples at any stage of the process. The XT is available in ready-to-use analyzer packages for many applications, pre-configured with robust calibrations and sample handling accessories for plug and play operation. All SpectraStar XTs are manufactured at Unity Scientific’s global headquarters in Milford, MA USA.

Unity was recently awarded a runner’s up finish in the Manufacturing Innovation category of the 2017 Manufacturer’s Leaders Award. Recognized for innovative 3D printing techniques in the SpectraStar manufacturing process, the competition included global industry leaders such as Thermo Fisher Scientific, Celestica, IBM and Stanley Black & Decker.

Process Sensors Corporation (PSC) will feature the MCT466-SF, an on-line NIR analyzer for measuring moisture and fat or protein, with a stainless-steel housing designed for the demanding environments of food processing facilities. The MCT466-SF is suitable for wash down conditions and can withstand ambient temperatures up to 80ºC. An optional stack alarm enables users to detect out-of-spec product and make immediate adjustments to reduce waste.

PSC will also demonstrate the MCT466-QuikCheck laboratory and at-line analyzer for immediate measurement of moisture and fat/oil in grab samples. The QuikCheck stores up to 100 unique product calibrations, offering users the ability to quickly test samples from multiple processing lines within minutes.


CHOPIN Technologies will be showcasing their Mixolab 2 analyzer, which determines the characteristics of dough – as well as the quality of starch and protein – during mixing. The Mixolab 2 provides millers and bakers with rapid information relating to starch quality and the conformity of flours, enabling consistent quality production. The CHOPIN Mixolab 2 is also ideal for the development of high-quality gluten-free products. Measuring the rheological behavior during mixing, baking, and proofing, the Mixolab 2 enables the selection of the best raw materials and ingredients to optimize wheat-based and gluten-free product production.


AMS Alliance will be presenting two recent innovations:

1) iCinac Wireless: Developed for dairy industries to monitor the acidifying activity of lactic ferments by continuous pH observation. This new, low cost wireless solution requires no data cables making it easy to deploy and scale. The flexible, modular & moveable system simplifies measurements using multi-parameter digital probes that simultaneously measure the pH, temperature and Redox potential of a sample on the same channel. Data is analyzed in real time by software installed on the customer's computer.

2) Futura 3 CFA analyzer: advanced technology for automated analyses. The Futura 3 is a new Continuous Flow Analyzer (UV-Vis spectrometer) which can simultaneously run multiple parameters on up to 16 parallel channels. The Futura 3 offers fully integrated automation technology, modularity, and a new analytical software package. The Futura 3 is ideal for dedicated analysis of parameters in the environmental, water and beverage markets.
