Konica Minolta Sensing Americas (KMSA) has launched its advanced CM-5 Benchtop Spectrophotometer during Food Ingredients Brazil 2012 show, taking place from September 18 to 20, 2012 at the Expo Centre Norte in Sao Paulo, Brazil.
For the first time, KMSA is participating in the Food Ingredients Brazil 2012 and will demonstrate its CM-5 in this major Brazilian food show. With over five decades of industry expertise, Konica Minolta has designed this advanced color measurement instrument (CM-5) to fulfill the highest standards for the actual unit operator and the food industry.
The CM-5 is a highly-featured, totally standalone instrument with high precision. It eliminates the need for a PC. The CM-5 is capable of clearly displaying colorimetric plots, numeric data, and spectral graphs. The top port design is flexible enough to track the measurement of fresh fruits and vegetables to frozen and ready-made foods. The incorporated sliding body panel leads to a large transmittance chamber that can measure films and liquids.
Following the development of the on-screen wizard, Konica Minolta has achieved this industry first CM-5.
In addition to the display of CM-5, the FI Brazil 2012 will also feature Konica Minolta Sensing's Food Color Indexing Technology (FCIT). FCIT is designed to provide the user with the right information relevant to their application, thereby offering time- and cost-efficiency. An index ensures easy color readings by providing one number for underlying decision. Other features at the show include indices for tomato, peanut butter, French fry, and coffee.
Application specialists will explain CM-5-based food color measurement and will also demonstrate the combined adoption of Food Color Indexing Technology with a CR-400/410 Colorimeter.
