FTIR technology

Analysis of even the most complex dairy products

MilkoScan™ 7 is based on Fourier Transform InfraRed (FTIR) analysis. It works with the mid-Infrared region of the spectrum from 3 - 10 µm corresponding to 1000 – 5000 cm -1.

The FTIR interferometer scans the full infrared spectrum, collecting data simultaneously and allowing measurement of new parameters even in complex dairy products. Analysis of an additional parameter simply becomes a matter of calibration.

More business opportunities

The analysis capabilities provided by the MilkoScan™ 7 offer:

  • Advanced and flexible raw milk testing services for cow, buffalo, sheep or goat milk
  • Profile milk samples according to fatty acid content
  • Accurate analysis of casein content
  • Enhanced free fatty acid analysis

Rapid and effective analysis

  • Monthly verification and adjustment based on just one equaliser sample
  • Self cleaning pipette makes it easy to measure even the most difficult samples quickly and efficiently
  • Automatic sample tracing with Foss Integrator™ software
  • Flexible milk testing from buffalo, sheep, goats and cows
  • Radio Frequency Identification for barcode sample ID

Integrated milk testing system

MilkoScan™ 7 uses the same efficient conveyor system as other FOSS instruments such as Fossomatic™ 7, CombiFoss™ 7 and BactoScan™ FC. For laboratory personnel this means they only have to learn how to use one user interface and can enjoy the benefits of easy integration of data.

Integrated software platform

MilkoScan™ 7, Fossomatic™ 7, CombiFoss™ 7 and BactoScan™ FC all share the same powerful Foss Integrator™ software platform offering advanced data handling and storage facilities for traceability while a common user interface promotes more efficient laboratory operations.
