The automatic potentiometric titrator HI901C serves as a benchtop meter for direct sample measurements. HI901C can titrate for a variety of applications, including acids and bases. In addition to titration mode, the autotitrator also operates as a fully functional pH, redox, and ion selective electrode meter. A dynamic dosing algorithm keeps titrations timely and accurate. The 40,000-step piston driven pump is capable of dosing extremely small volumes of reagent. The unit also features equivalence endpoint detection. Hanna Instruments, 800-426-6287, www.hannainst.com.

Solutions for Allergen and Germ Contamination
According to the company, KIMTECH Precision Cleaning Cloths + Allergen Control are 100% allergen free and are designed and tested to remove up to 100% of food allergens from surfaces. KIMTECH Precision Cleaning Cloths’ AllerXpel Technology combines high absorbency with high abrasiveness to remove allergens from stainless steel surfaces. The cloth absorbs four times its weight in liquid, removing water from surfaces when cleaning and reducing down time.
In addition, the new Continuum System is a safety culture program designed to foster improved hand hygiene and cleaning practices. Beginning with an onsite assessment of the food processing facility, Kimberly-Clark Professional’s proprietary approach exposes the weakest links in safety related to hygiene and cleaning and recommends solutions to positively influence workers and their physical environment.

The Nicolet iN5 FTIR microscope is designed for laboratory technicians to identify particulate or unknown microscopic materials, including contaminants and defects in food. With minimal user training, it features an optical setup that allows users to simultaneously examine a sample and collect chemical information. A large field of view is intended to make it easier to locate and target contaminants, and it has the spatial resolution required for accurate chemical analysis. The microscope uses Thermo Scientific OMNIC software so users can match samples in real time. Thermo Fisher Scientific, 800-955-6288, www.thermofisher.com.
A new trio of Zebron GC columns are developed for the analysis of fatty acid methyl esters (FAME) in food. Identification and measurement of these compounds in food products, such as cheese, peanut butter, infant formula, cooking oils, and oil-based nutritional supplements, is increasingly important in meeting labeling requirements and testing for product adulteration. The Zebron ZB-FAME offers selectivity targeting a 37-compound mix in a column that’s shorter than traditional solutions, reducing run times to about 11 minutes. The Zebron ZB-88 is a GC alternative to other 88-phase columns for the separation of cis/trans isomers. This column is suited for the analysis of olive and hydrogenated oils. And the Zebron ZB-23 can be a cost-effective alternative to existing 23-phase columns for the separation of cis/trans isomers in products including omega-3 and fish oils.
