LactoScope Milk and Dairy Products Analyzer

Milk processors and dairies across the globe are challenged every day with ensuring the consistency of incoming raw materials and making fair payment to suppliers. Quick and accurate compositional analysis of key components of raw milk and other dairy products is of paramount importance in these industries for enhancing value and ensuring quality of final products. The supply of a skilled and well-trained staff to ensure proper verification of incoming and final products is also crucial to optimize processes and maximize profits.

The LactoScope is designed to address the needs of dairies and processors of all sizes to quickly and accurately analyze the key components of raw milk and other dairy products. A state-of-the art FT-IR (Fourier-Transform Infrared Spectroscopy) instrument with modern optics and simple to use but powerful software enables the LactoScope to test raw, standardized and processed milks, whey, cream and other dairy products.The instrument incorporates the latest mid-infrared (MIR) technology for quick measuring time of 30-45 seconds with a typical accuracy of under 1% CV. The instrument's modular construction minimizes the vibration of the FT-IR bench, and its integrated design provides efficient use of laboratory space. The LactoScope has pre-installed calibrations, low cost of ownership, minimum downtime, and worldwide support for all its users.

With PerkinElmer NetPlus cloud solution the LactoScope can easily be configured and monitored remotely 24/7.

Technology that delivers

Our patented technology ensures you get the most out of your dairy analysis, regardless of your application. Patented Dynascan interferometer in the FTIR Spectrophotometer The LactoScope spectrometer incorporates PerkinElmer’s Dynascan interferometer, the OpticsGuard technology and molecular sieve as an optic compartment desiccant.

  • The automatic clean cycles and zeros maintain the sample pumping unit and the measuring cell in optimal conditions, therefore improving the overall reliability and accuracy of the instrument.
  • Sample pre-heat and homogenization standardize the temperature and particle size of the fat globules before measurement.
  • Full-spectrum analysis enables quantification of all components.
  • The Intuitive Results Plus software provides rapid implementation with minimal training, is available in multiple languages and compatible with LIMS systems.
  • The PerkinElmer NetPlus cloud solution enables remote configuration and monitoring of the LactoScope.
  • Global calibrations to analyze raw milk, whey, and cream always included
