FT-NIR Dairy Webinar

Dairy Analysis Workshop: How NIR spectroscopy can help to streamline your (non-) dairy production


Dairy Analysis Workshop

Are you involved in quality control of milk and dairy products in the laboratory or production floor? Or do you produce non-dairy products like plant-based milk, yoghurt, or vegan cheese? Join our virtual workshop free of charge with expert advice and hands-on demonstrations.

Our Agenda

Why FT-NIR spectroscopy is a powerful alternative to conventional technologies
Dr. Andreas Niemöller, Business Unit Manager for Food Analysis Solutions at Bruker Optics, will highlight why NIR is today established as an indispensable rapid analysis technology for analysis of ingredients and products. He will show what Bruker as a leading analytical company offers in terms of tailor-made solutions for the dairy industry – from small, touch screen accessible, analyzers up to fully automated in-process systems for closed loop control.

Introducing the new MPA II Dairy Analyzer with hands-on demo
Jörg Hauser, Dairy Manager at Bruker Optics will introduce the latest addition to Bruker’s portfolio, the new MPA II Dairy Analyzer based on FT-NIR spectroscopy for the analysis of liquid and solid dairy and non-dairy products. He will demonstrate the new MPA II Dairy Analyzer live from the lab with different sample types, from raw milk and vegan drinks to yoghurt, cheese, and plant-based products. You will learn the workflow of an analysis, see how the results are displayed and be surprised about the ease-of-use and speed of FT-NIR technology.

Experience and results of Industry 4.0 and Bruker FT-NIR spectrometers for the monitoring and process control of dairy products
Dr. Alfonso Perez Gallardo, Product and Process Research Manager at Sigma Alimentos, a leading multinational food company with over 70 production facilities worldwide, will talk about the implementation of FT-NIR in the context of “Industry 4.0”. Having a broad expertise in the development, implementation, and monitoring of in-line production measurement and control projects, Dr. Gallardo will highlight the benefits, but also how the pitfalls when implementing FT-NIR spectroscopy into dairy production lines.

Q&A with our dairy experts
We are happy to answer the questions you may have regarding NIR spectroscopy in the lab or directly in the process stream.

Your Benefits

After this workshop you will have an overview of the solutions Bruker has to offer for dairy and non-dairy analysis. During the live demo, you have gained a good impression on how this technology can help in your daily routine work in the lab. You will also have an insight on how FT-NIR can be implemented into the process and what the benefits are to go online.

The workshop will also be available on demand. However, if you join us live, you will receive a certificate of attendance for your files.
