The new benchmark in oxygen monitoring: M1100 Luminescent Oxygen Sensor
In-line sensor for the determination of dissolved oxygen (DO) in beer and de-aerated water.

  • Minimal drift and fast response: Measurement frequency every 2 seconds

  • Highly accurate: ppb DO measurement with a range of 0-2000ppb and 0.8 detection level
  • Low maintenance: Robust optical technology without membrane or electrolyte

New methods in photometry: Ensuring  accuracy in the analysis of bitterness and colour
Photometry is an important part of modern laboratory activity within a be brewery. The determination of bitterness units, colour and photometric iodine samples are just some examples of the routine analysis that takes place in a brewery laboratory. These methods involve various enzymatic detections, such as the determination of alcohol or sugars (sucrose, fructose and glucose). Read the whole story and find out more...
