Munich, Germany (April 10, 2018) – AMS Alliance and Unity Scientific, both KPM Analytics companies, will present their advanced analyzer solutions for environmental, agricultural and food applications at Analytica 2018, Booth A1-522 in Munich, Germany, April 10 – 13. Used for process and quality control in dairy, beverage, cereal, snack & baked goods, milling, and other food processing applications, the solutions can monitor and improve product quality, help maintain brand integrity, archive data, and reduce costs.

AMS Alliance will be presenting three recent innovations:

1) iCinac Wireless: Developed for dairy industries to monitor the acidifying activity of lactic ferments by continuous pH observation. This new, low cost wireless solution requires no data cables making it easy to deploy and scale. The flexible, modular & moveable system simplifies measurements using multi-parameter digital probes that simultaneously measure the pH, temperature and Redox potential of a sample on the same channel. Data is analyzed in real time by software installed on the customer's computer.

2) Smartchem 450 high versatility discrete analyzer. The new Smartchem 450 is a fully automated, direct read, discrete analyzer that maximizes productivity for routine and special chemistries at a very low running cost. Multi-parameter analyses can be made on a variety of samples at up to 450 tests/hour making the Smartchem 450 our most versatile discrete analyzer. The new software package makes it easy to set up chemistries and test parameters. Ready-to-use reagents are also available. The Smartchem 450 is ideal for medium throughput analysis in the environmental, water and/or commercial laboratory markets. 

3) Futura 3 CFA analyzer: advanced technology for automated analyses. The Futura 3 is a new Continuous Flow Analyzer (UV-Vis spectrometer) which can simultaneously run multiple parameters on up to 16 parallel channels. The Futura 3 offers fully integrated automation technology, modularity, and a new analytical software package. The Futura 3 is ideal for dedicated analysis of parameters in the environmental, water and beverage markets. 

Unity Scientific will be demonstrating the SpectraStar XT Analyzer. With the best performance in the industry, the XT is a robust, easy-to-use NIR analyzer for both laboratory and at-line environments in the food, agricultural and ingredient markets. The XT includes patented TRUE ALIGNMENT® Spectroscopy technology which automatically aligns the instrument to reference standards keeping it in peak accuracy.

The SpectraStar XT produces accurate, repeatable results in 30 seconds, measuring moisture, fat, protein, total sugar and other properties from samples at any stage of the process. The XT is available in ready-to-use analyzer packages for many applications, pre-configured with robust calibrations and sample handling accessories for plug and play operation. All SpectraStar XTs are manufactured at Unity Scientific’s global headquarters in Milford, MA USA.

Unity Scientific recently received a 2018 Manufacturing Leadership Award from Frost & Sullivan for Engineering and Production Technology Leadership.   Unity Scientific’s winning SpectraStar project uses advanced techniques to manufacture a line of complex, high precision NIR spectrophotometers for laboratory and at-line use.  For more information on the Frost & Sullivan Manufacturing Awards, please see .
