MIRA Banner

Bruker developed the MIRA - a pre-calibrated, high precision IR milk analyzer - for the needs of today’s dairy industry. The system offers a cost-effective way for the quality control of milk, whey, and cream.

The MIRA can analyze important parameters like fat, protein, total solids and lactose in seconds. Therefore, our customers can quickly carry out required and optimized process adjustments. The high-pressure homogenizer ensures evenly homogenized samples for high repeatability and accuracy. Optionally, the MIRA milk analyzer can also determine the freezing point.

Key Benefits

The MIRA milk analyzer will certainly enable the user to carry out reliable quality control. The main benefits are:

  • Ease of operation
  • High precision and repeatability
  • Low cost of ownership
  • User-independent results
  • Automatic cleaning/zeroing

Ease of use

The intuitive software guides the user through the process. The MIRA milk analyzer automatically analyzes the sample in transmission after the operator selects sample type and entering sample ID.

Product specific ready-to-use calibrations are easy to adjust will generate precise results. Moreover, the user can set up dedicated calibrations for customer specific products.

Reliable Results

To prove the performance of the MIRA, we put it to a test and asked ACTALIA Cecalait − the center of expertise in the dairy sector, recognized in France and internationally − to carry out an independent evaluation of the performance of the mid infra-red analyzer MIRA. ACTALIA Cecalait concluded that the MIRA instrument provides good repeatability, stability and performance and is compliant with related ISO and IDF standards.

Moreover, the MIRA has proven to show an excellent performance on raw cow‘s milk using the AOAC Official Method 972.16 (Fat, Lactose, Protein, and Solids in Milk; Mid-Infrared Spectroscopic Method).

Proven Quality

More than 25 years of experience in designing solutions for the dairy industry were combined with the high quality standards of Bruker. Our systems run hassle-free in companies producing milk and milk products worldwide. This way, our customers can benefit from large cost savings.

Automatic Cleaning and Zeroing

The MIRA milk analyzer is very easy to use. After a preset time, it will perform an automatic zeroing to ensure constant performance over time. Moreover, the MIRA automatically cleans itself to prevent contamination or  blockage of the fluid mechanics without any operator intervention.

Hassle-Free Maintenance

The user can easily carry out the maintenance of the MIRA himself. Consequently, downtime and maintenance costs are reduced.  Light source as well as desiccant cartridge can be exchanged easily. The permanent diagnostics monitor the instrument and  will advise the user of any problems.

Robust and Reliable

The MIRA milk analyzer is ideal for the use in a laboratory or an at-line process lab. The robust filter instrument is resistant to vibration and other environmental influences. The internal sample heating guarantees a reproducible and reliable performance on all measured parameters.
