Strategic partnership in the field of multi-parameter analysis for the Flavours & Fragrances industry.

Two world-wide renowned specialists in their field join forces: Mettler Toledo and Konica Minolta Sensing have announced a strategic partnership in the field of Multi-parameter Analysis for the Flavours & Fragrances industry.

The partnership will bundle the CM-5 or CR-5 Spectrophotometer from Konica Minolta with the Density, Refractive index and pH instruments from Mettler Toledo to provide a complete system for automatic quality monitoring of raw materials and finished goods.

Trend towards workflow automation and multiple parameter analysis

Mettler Toledo and Konica Minolta Sensing Europe B.V. have decided to join forces with a strategic partnership by adding color measurement solutions to density, refractive index and pH measurement to offer a dedicated automatic multi-parameter analysis system for the Food and Flavours & Fragrances industry.

This is in response to today’s trends towards workflow automation, driven by the need to increase throughput and improve safety and data quality for multi parametric evaluations.

During quality monitoring of raw materials, intermediate and finished products in foods, as well as flavours and fragrances, it is essential that the specific gravity, refractive index and pH value are accurately determined.

In addition, the need to precisely monitor and control the color of samples has become increasingly important.

Modularity and Flexibility vs. Complexity and Heaviness

In contrast to heavy solutions, the benefits of the newly offered system are modularity and flexibility.

The modular design of Mettler Toledo LiquiPhysics allows bundling different measurement instruments: Density Meters, Refractometers, pH- or Conductivity-Meters can be freely combined for a simultaneous determination of the needed parameters.

Measurements of all instruments can be started with a single click on the user-friendly touch screen display.

Sampling, cleaning and drying of the whole system is done completely automatically with the powerful automation units.

The CM-5 and the basic model CR-5 are compact and flexible spectrophotometers from Konica Minolta Sensing. These instruments are now integrated in the Mettler Toledo LiquiPhysics system.

Equipped with a flow-trough cell, color measurement of liquids can be performed automatically and in parallel with the determination of density / specific gravity, refractive index, pH or conductivity.

All instrument functions and data handling of the spectrophotometers are then controlled by a Mettler Toledo instrument or by the LabX® Software.

The optional LabX® Software manages not only data but also the product database, users and instruments. LabX® Software is ready for integration with LIMS / ERP and ELN.
