Invitation Technology Update March 7, 2019

Benelux Scientific is proud to invite you to attend the Technology Update on "Imaging, size and shape in food analysis" at our offices in Nazareth on Thursday 7 March 2019. This Technology Update is organized by Benelux Scientific in collaboration with its partners TAGARNO, manufacturer of digital microscopes, and MICROTRAC, manufacturer of particle characterization equipment. We’ll focus on 2 new and innovative products that will surely ease your food analyses!


The TAGARNO digital microscope is an efficient magnification tool for quality analysis of seed, grains and flour. You can view your sample in high magnification with extremely high image quality. Thereby you can quickly perform processes such as seed germination testing, variety identification and purity determination of a seed or grain test. The speck counting application is a new, accurate and digital way to count the number of speck and bran in flour samples as an alternative to the strenuous manually estimation of the quality levels. This helps you to ensure high quality in the flour production and to guarantee efficiency and accuracy in the process. 


The Microtrac PARTAN 3D dynamic shape & size analyser uses the unique 3D particle tracking technology. This technology offers data that are very close to the real 3-dimensional shape and size of particles. This allows you 

  • to simulate, and completely automate sieve analysis (in the lab or directly in the production line);
  • to extract size data such as the real length and width or % broken material in a wide range of food stuffs;
  • to measure data faster, more frequent and more accurate.

Take a look at the product video for more information.

There are 2 info sessions to choose from. Every session includes a demonstration with the latest innovations currently available in the market. Participation is free of charge but we kindly request to register by mail to info@remove-this.benelux-scientific.com before Friday 1 March 2019. You are welcome to bring your own samples for the demonstration. We are looking forward to seeing you there.
