Hygiene is a major factor in the industrial processing of food. Microorganisms can be decimated with irradiation. The MS 5000 benchtop EPR system offers a fast, simple and sensitive method to detect radiation induced radicals.
Most of our daily food is processed in an industrial environment. To ensure hygienic integrity the food is irradiated. This standard procedure could generate free radicals which may alter the taste, quality and shelf-life of food/beverages.
ESR spectroscopy can detect free radicals directly and sensitively within a few seconds. The measurement is based on European standards (see below) to ensure a reliable method of quality control.

ESR is a fast, simple and standardaized method for food irradiation control.
Advantages of ESR:
Fast readout time (10 s to 30 s)
Measuring the impact of ionizing radiation over a wide range: low dose up to high dose
Versatile for different kinds of food
Example 1: Pistachio in accordance with DIN EN 1787
Example 2: Dry mango in accrodance with DIN EN 13708
