TESTIMONIALS

The versatility of a tool like the spectroscopy-based analyser VISUM Palm in Europastry is a huge revolution in our meaning to maintain the quality of the processes under control. In our case, not only brings us reliable information but time and cost-saving data about total acidity and the content of the polar components in the frying oil of the production line.
At the same time, VISUM Palm gave us useful data to determine the qualities of fried products, like moisture and fat percentages. This functionality helps to save arduous lab tasks and lets our employees stay focus on other high value-added duties. The return of the investment is clear and well based.
Our idea is to extend its use to the foreign bodies control due to its difficult characterisation and identification within the dough and raw materials. The VISUM Palm is an open system, in terms of the quantity and type of parameters, and it is also capable of characterising this type of materials.
- Marina Diana, Scientific Research Manager at EUROPASTRY, S.A.
Under the framework of the EU funded H2020 project, Agrimax, in Nofima we have been testing the feasibility of selected rapid and non-destructive sensors for monitoring and control of different extraction processes. Testing the dry matter content in cutin paste monitoring, an expensive and high-resolution lab instrument from a leading brand has been compared with the hand-held VISUM Palm, yielding strikingly similar results.
While both systems were capable of performing the analysis with the same level of accuracy, the VISUM PALM offers the added advantage of measuring on a quite small spot, thereby enabling high-quality spectra to also be obtained from hard and bulk samples.
- Dr Jens Petter Wold, Senior scientist at NOFIMA
All and all, VISUM Palm is a solid piece of equipment which is portable, user-friendly and has a lot of potentials. We and Prof Elliott’s team are working in the area of food authenticity and vegetable oil speciation for a number of years now and looking for opportunities to make the analysis fast, portable and cost-effective. With the right application the VisumPalm ticks all the boxes.
