Lactoscope FT-A - Versatile Liquid Dairy Products Analyzer

The LactoScope FT-A is our most versatile instrument capable of testing a wide range of dairy products: milk, cream, whey, concentrates, ice-creams and yogurt mixes. The latest hardware innovations allow you to easily test the most challenging dairy products, such as creams with 55% fat and other viscous products. With a typical accuracy under 1% CV, a measuring time of 30 seconds, low cost of ownership and minimal downtime, this instrument is the preferred choice of the large processors and dairy laboratories.

The PerkinElmer LactoScope milk analyzer 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 a low cost of ownership, minimum downtime, and worldwide support for all its users.

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 software provides rapid implementation with minimal training, is compatible with LIMS systems and has the option of protecting the calibrations and data with a password.
  • The LactoScope includes the calibrations to analyze raw, standardized and processed milks, whey, and cream.
