What our clients say about us

The use of VISUM Palm supposes a huge revolution in our meaning to maintain the quality of the processes under control. It brings us real-time and reliable information and cost-saving data about total acidity and the content of the polar components in the frying oil of the production line. VISUM Palm also gives 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 ROI is clear and well based.
- Marina Diana, Scientific Research Manager at EUROPASTRY, S.A.
Under the framework of the EU funded H2020 project, Agrimax, 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. It allows 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.
