Screening, testing or real-time detection can be utilized to detect melamine-adulterated milk in a supply chain.The determination of where the sampling is taking place, who is carrying out the measurement and whether the testing is to meet regulation defines which technology to use.

Analysis of Milk for Major and Trace Elements by ICP-MS

Milk and milk powder are used widely in the food industry for the production of other foods. Because of its nutritional importance and widespread consumption, regulations in many countries necessitate that the quality of the milk is routinely monitored.

Screening for Melamine in milk by Lactoscope FTIR

A practical screening method for the presence of melamine down to a level of 500 ppm or 0.05%m/m using Lactoscope FTIR is presented here. The discrimination limit can be further reduced to 100 ppm (0.01%m/m) using the melamine specific detection model.
