Cost Effective Primary Moisture Analysis for Dairy Products
An accurate determination of moisture content in milk products provides important information related to the food quality and safety (texture, taste, microbial stability). Moisture is also a key variable used to calculate a product’s purity, yield, and /or resulting constituent analysis on a dry basis. The TGM800 provides the user with flexible method settings, automation, and hardware capabilities that maximises…
"The detection of honey bee diseases through monitoring shifts in volatile profiles" by Maggie Gill – Keele University, UK
Today, 20th May, is UN World Honey Bee Day. The honey bee is an important pollinator species that contributes an estimated $15 billion a year to the US economy through crop pollination and £690 million to the UK economy. Honey bees are also important wild pollinators, and play a key role in maintaining biodiversity and ecosystem services in many ecosystems.
"Evaluating Oxidized Base Oils by Flow Modulated GC×GC-TOFMS" by Paul Harvath
At LECO’S GC×GC Workshop & Symposium (filmed at the LECO European Application and Training Centre, Berlin, Germany) Paul Harvath gave a talk entitled "Evaluation of Oxidized Base Oils by Flow Modulated Two-Dimensional Gas Chromatography – Time of Flight Mass Spectrometry". In his talk he gave an insight about the history and future of engine oils for cars, and how the…
Balanced Soil: Carbon, Nitrogen, and Sulfur Determination with the CNS928
Well-balanced crops require well-balanced soil. While carbon may be the most essential element for organic life, the right ratio of nitrogen and sulfur in the soil along with the carbon can really influence the speed and strength of plant development and growth. With a macro combustion carbon, nitrogen, and sulfur determinator such as LECO's CNS928, those ratios can be discovered…
