Thermo Fisher Scientific Inc. announces the introduction of a new set of highly automated and easy to use applications for potato snack & french fries producers on it’s Thermo Scientific Arena analyzers.
The applications are to measure reducing sugars (D-glucose, D-fructose), sucrose and asparagine, which form acrylamide under certain processing conditions. The risk of acrylamide formation can be reduced by selecting properly stored, appropriate raw material.
To test the raw material, a rapid, automated method applied to Thermo Scientific Arena auto-analyzer is now available using the pressed juice of potato mixed with a special diluent.
Automated, and easy to work with, the Arena analyzer gives the opportunity to increase productivity and to perform testing near the production line whereby the speed of achieving test results increases.
