The new honey profiling module of the NMR FoodScreener has gained acceptance by major global food analysis labs and honey-packers due to its unique capabilities to rapidly and cost-effectively detect adulteration, and mislabeling of content or origin.

Eurofins Scientific Group and the Bruker-led Honey Consortium with companies QSI and ALNuMed decided to harmonise their NMR honey profiling models and are collaborating on the release of a unified update of the honey profiling module.

Famille Michaud Apiculteurs is the first honey-packer to adopt this novel NMR solution. With the integration of honey profiling in their analytical portfolio, Famille Michaud can increase the scope of analysis, while reducing the time of analysis from two days to 20 minutes, in order to reduce production lead-times and total costs, and to protect their premiere honey brands.

The latest update of the wine profiling module of the NMR FoodScreener provides a unique solution for the authentication, fraud detection and labeling compliance of high-value wines.

The latest module upgrade features a substantial increase in the number of regions covered, and includes areas of particular interest to consortiums, consumers and collectors.

Wines from France, Italy and Spain, where a premium is paid for wines from a specific locale and labeling requirements are stringent, can be easily and cost-efficiently authenticated and their quality ensured.

As demonstrated by recent adulteration scandals identified by this method, wine profiling is a powerful tool for the full value chain, from producers guaranteeing the quality of their product to merchants anxious to protect their investment and reputation.

Bruker announces new sample automation with 26mm tubes to further enhance the value of its TD-NMR-based minispec toothpaste analyser.

The sample changer can handle 48 samples with temperature control for highest reproducibility. Further options include a barcode reader and safety housing.

The minispec toothpaste analyser measures the fluorine content in toothpaste several times faster and at a fraction of the total cost of ownership compared to other methods.
