ADS420 Saccharimeter

Product Description

The ADS420 Saccharimeter is a low cost automatic polarimeter specifically designed for use in busy sugar laboratories and tare houses. Operation is very simple by way of four graphically presented push buttons and therefore requires no on-screen language interpretation.

Unlike other low cost polarimeters, the ADS420 uses an LED light source that requires no maintenance. A single temperature sensor provides the measurement for sugar compensation whilst quartz compensation facilitates accurate verification and calibration using a quartz control plate by accessing the span facility in the setup menu. Latest specification electronics within the instrument allows measurement of samples with low transmittance and should a sample be too dark or has entrapped air; the instrument will display an error message. Results are continually measured and displayed allowing easy assessment of stability.

Although the ADS420 Saccharimeter can measure dark samples of up to 3 OD, for optimum performance it is ideal to remove colour and suspended solids to provide a clear solution or one of less than 2.0 OD.  For locations where lead based filtrates are not permitted, or where disposal costs restrict its use, the ADS480 NIR Saccharimeter offers ‘lead-free’ operation when used in conjunction with a less toxic clarifier such as Cellite®.
With accuracy to ±0.03 °Z, the ADS420 is compliant to the minimum requirements of ICUMSA for sodium wavelength analysis of clarified sugar cane/beet juice and processed sugar.

Kitchen Utensils Can Spread Bacteria Between Foods
In a recent study researchers found that produce that contained bacteria would contaminate other produce items through the continued use of knives or graters—the bacteria would latch on to the utensils commonly found in consumers' homes and spread to the next item.
GMO Food Animals Should be Judged by Product, Not Process
In a world with a burgeoning demand for meat, milk and eggs, regulatory policies around the use of biotechnologies in agriculture need to be based on the safety and attributes of those foods rather than on the methods used to produce them, says a UC Davis animal scientist.
