Use of HERACLES Electronic nose in R&D

Lactalis is a family group based in Laval (Mayenne, France) and is present in 148 countries.

« Our Research & Development service, specialized in volatiles compounds analysis, acquired an HERACLES electronic nose in March 2009. This tool complements our analytical instrumentation park and brings a new dimension: rapidity in flavor analysis.

 Perfectly correlated to SPME-GC-MS results, the HERACLES allowed us to get onto various projects such as mapping of finished products or fast screening of microbiological leavens. »
