Analytical solutions for Beer
AMS Alliance has developed specific analytical solutions for beer, based on two complementary technologies which are Continuous Flow and Discrete analysis, to implement within the parameters to be analyzed as well as your laboratory needs.
The Continuous Flow or CFA (Futura, Futura Duo and Proxima) allows to analyse, by using fluorimetry beta-glucanes, both Alpha-Amylases and Bitterness (with the UV detector). The Continuous Flow is also recommended for Alpha Amino Nitrogen, Polyphenols, Diastasic Power, Kjeldahl Nitrogen and Density.
It is a proven laboratory analytical technique capable of quickly processing a large set of samples, well suited to complex chemistries. Futura is distinguished by its modularity (micro or macro flow, several types of detectors), the quality of the optical system offers low detection limits, a complete automation of analysis and the possibility to increase the number of parameters to be analyzed. CFA is compliant with reference methods like EPA, ISO, AFNOR, CORESTA, APHA, OIV...
To meet all the needs and facilitate the implementation of the analysis, Futura range offers many accessories automatically controlled by the system as well as ready to use reagents.
The Discrete analysis (Smartchem range) is a technique perfect for the following parameters: Acetic Acid, Reducing Substances, Poplyphenols, Chlorides, Sulfates, Lactic Acid, Potassium, Magnesium, Calcium, Total SO2, Color, Flavonoids, Phosphates.
This technique is spreading in laboratories due to its many advantages such as high flexibility (possibility to simultaneously analyze several parameters and to multiply the samples), large capacity (from 140 to 600 tests/hour according to the device), very low detection limits, fully automated and easy to use instruments, Ready to use reagents directly positionable into the analyzer.
With our range composed of 5 instruments (140, 170, 200, 300 and 600 tests/hour) there is always a Smartchem meeting your needs.
These analysis can be carried out either by Research & Development, for new flavors development, or by process control, to monitor its good implementation, or in quality control.
AMS Alliance propose also a Food Safety Investigator Kit for the detection of 12 Spoilage microorganisms in the Beer.
