New Glucose/Lactate Analyser for Food & Beverage Applications from Xylem’s YSI Brand

Feb 26 2019 Read 521 Times

Xylem has launched the new YSI brand 2500 Biochemistry Analyser for rapid analysis of glucose and/or lactate in food and beverage products.

Based on the established 2900D Series analyser that is commonplace in modern biotechnology laboratories around the globe, by comparison, this cut-down version offers a wide range of application solutions at a very affordable price.

The new analyser uses proprietary immobilised enzyme electrode technology to provide results in 60 seconds or less; the results being hardly affected by colour, turbidity, pH or the presence of reducing substances.

Current YSI 2500 Analyser application methods include the determination of dextrose in potatoes, glucose in frozen or canned green beans and L-Lactate in luncheon meats as well as % cook in extruded cereal products by chemical solubility or autoclave methods.

Like its big brother, the YSI 2500 features an intuitive graphical user interface, a USB port for data retrieval, and the ability to measure samples from a variety of sample holders including 96 well plates and micro-centrifuge tubes.

For a wider range of analytes within the food and beverage and wider industries, the 2900D model can measure glucose, lactate, glutamate, glutamine, glycerol, xylose, choline, hydrogen peroxide, sucrose, ethanol, methanol, lactose, galactose.

YSI is part of Xylem’s analytical division, whose brands Bellingham + Stanley (refractometers & polarimeters), ebro (precision thermometers, food oil meters & data loggers), SI Analytics (electrodes & titrators), OI Analytical (TOC & nitrate/nitrite flow chemistry analysers) and WTW (multi-parameter lab meters & spectrophotometers) have been serving the food and beverage industry for many years.
