An e-nose to increase sensory analysis reliability
Offering innovative quality products
Within New Max, the R&D and quality management team is in charge of developing new products that will satisfy the expectations and needs of their customers in the food industry. They also control the quality of production and raw materials to validate new suppliers. They used to rely on sensory panel, until they purchased an electronic nose from Alpha MOS in 2016.
Aline Brigato, R&D and Quality Manager, comments “Since 2016, we have been using the instrument for quality control and for research and development. The equipment is better than a common gas chromatograph because it facilitates the job for discovering chemical compounds contained in the products.
It also avoids the need of maintaining a human sensory panel and at the same time it increases the accuracy and confidence in the results of our analysis.
We can affirm that the purchase of this instrument was one of New Max's best investments.”
