Spoilage Organisms and Particulate Contamination Monitoring
Innovaprep Concentrating Pipette
The Concentrating Pipette provides rapid concentration of spoilage organisms and particulate contaminants. It can concentrate molds, yeasts, and bacteria from up to 355 mL of beer in minutes for rapid analysis with PCR or other analytical methods. Average concentration factors of 1000X -2000X are commonly achievable. Your products can be screened for quality in a single shift. It saves money in labor, product hold times, wasted packaging in the case of recall, and ensures prolonged quality. It allows more screening to be performed in a shift – faster, easier and better.
"If your goal is to move to one-day QC, the InnovaPrep method provides the best possible sensitivity to do it when paired with rapid molecular assays"
- Monitoring spoilage organisms in carbonated beverages including alcoholic beverages
- Microbial monitoring of the environment including: air sampling, surface samples, vat rinses
- Drinking water
- Juice and other beverage
KEMIO ™ Disinfection & Sanitation
Palintest technologies help businesses to reach the highest standards of food safety through the critical process and disinfection control.
Kemio™ is the next-generation measurement platform. A sophisticated electrochemical technique, Kemio™ performs tests for Chlorine (free and total), Chlorine Dioxide, Chlorite and Peracetic Acid (PAA) on one instrument with the use of different sensors which removes complexity for the user, reducing user errors and delivers quality results that you can trust.
Sanitation is employed in all food and beverage sectors, often with stringent controls and regulations through a series of cleaning and sanitization processes. Monitoring and validation of these sanitizers help ensure product quality and safety are protected. Palintest technologies are used in facilities across the food and beverage industry to protect product quality and safety, including in the following sectors
✔ Fresh Produce
✔ Meat & Poultry
Cold Aseptic Filling - Cold Aseptic Filling involves bottling a product at ambient temperatures. A cost effective and healthy way of packaging, it is used for bottling of a wide variety of dairy and beverage products.
Cleaning in Place (CIP) - Cleaning in Place involves the cleaning of the machinery and pipework using a mixture of chemicals, heat and water without dismantling or opening equipment.
Dip Tank and Chiller - Dip, dry or dump tanks and chillers are used to process a range of fresh produce and poultry products. These must be carefully controlled to ensure produce is safe for consumption.
Flume and Spray Bar - Flume and spray bars are a critical process in preventing cross-contamination and reducing microbial counts on produce surfaces.
Irrigation Water - Irrigation water includes water required for the growth of crops both outside and indoor in more controlled environments.Tools and Surfaces - Any tools and surfaces that come into contact with produce must be cleaned and sanitized. This is a critical process to prevent any cross contamination to other produce.
For when continuous temperature and humidity monitoring is needed.
Traceable Data loggers
Data Loggers provide a more cost-effective option than hard-wired temperature sensors which can be time-consuming and expensive. These instruments are especially advantageous when visibility over product is restricted i.e. during transit.
Traceable Thermometer and hygrometer
Traceable' top thermometer and hygrometer data loggers include Digi-Sense® TraceableOne™ single-use temperature data loggers and TraceableGo™ temperature data loggers which are calibrated to ILAC-MRA and NIST standards. These instruments can register the critical parameters of specimens during transit, making cold chain management worry-free, allowing continuous monitoring and thus filling in the unknowns between destinations.
- Ultra-high accuracy thermometer
- NIST traceable calibration included
- Interchangeable temperature probes
- Hand-held flexibility

Low level residue monitoring & control is driven by consumer & environmental safety.
SPEX offers a range of sample preparation equipment and consumables that simplify and improve throughput for organic and inorganic analysis. This equipment has been shown to increase sample throughput; improve analyte recovery; and increase method reproducibility.
Scientists using the QuEChERS method frequently use the Geno/Grinder to shake and homogenize samples for both the extraction and clean- up steps. Furthermore, the SPEX Geno/Grinder is cited in EN 15662, Foods of plant origin – EU Multimethod for the determination of Pesticide Residues using GC and LC based analysis.
Food authentication is a rapidly growing field due to increasing public awareness concerning food quality, safety and its origin.
SPEX 2010 Geno/Grinder® - Automated Tissue Homogenizer and Cell Lyser
Automated Tissue Homogenizer and Cell Lyser. Automated mechanical disruption through bead beating, ideal for high-throughput cell lysis applications including DNA/ RNA extraction, protein extraction and pesticide residue analysis.
Some samples are impossible to grind at ambient temperatures. The Freezer/Mill® is a programmable cryogenic grinder specifically designed for milling and grinding of tough or temperature sensitive samples. Samples are placed in sealed cryogenic grinding vials then immersed in liquid nitrogen (LN). The samples are cooled to cryogenic temperatures then ground by a magnetically shuttling impactor.
Since the vials are sealed, the cryogenic grinder maintains the integrity of its contents. Volatile compounds are retained, hazardous or critical samples are easily controlled, cleanup is simplified and cross-sample contamination is eliminated.
Typical samples include: Animal tissue, plastic and polymers, yeast cultures, pharmaceuticals, tough or sticky food products, electronic components, textiles, hair, teeth, bones, plant tissue, cannabis and packaging.
