Reflectoquant® HMF Quick Test: Reliable In-Process Monitoring of Honey and Juice

Merck:/Freestyle/LE-Lab-Essentials/Test Kits/LE-Reflectoquant HMF-150x101-11052013.jpgReflectoquant® HMF quick test is the reliable and fast way to determine freshness of honey or fruit juice by the hydroxymethylfurfural (HMF) content. HMF is an important quality criterion in many thermally-treated foods and drinks. Until now, the substance had to be detected in comparatively time-consuming laboratory tests using the HPLC process or the photometric Winkler method.

With EMD Millipore´s innovative Reflectoquant® quick test the HMF value can be defined for in-process monitoring in only a few minutes after sample preparation – the test is reliable, user-friendly and good value. Reflectoquant® HMF quick test by EMD Millipore has established itself as a mobile laboratory with low costs per sample. It uses quantitative analyses to support producers in monitoring not only raw materials, but also manufacturing and filling processes: Reflectoquant® delivers results, which are accurate enough to allow secure planning of whether and how food and drinks should be further processed.

All Benefits of Reflectoquant® HMF Quick Test at a Glance:
  • reliable analysis on site
  • easy
  • user-friendly
  • fast
  • low investment, low cost per sample

Reflectoquant® Peroxide Test for Pharma Application – USP Recommended

EMD Millipore´s Reflectoquant® peroxide test is a reliable and fast way to determine peroxide residues in cotton. Even the United States Pharmacopoeia (USP) recommends it for reliable in-process monitoring in pharmaceutical companies.

When you open a bottle of loose tablets, you often find a cotton ball under the lid. It protects the pills from damage during transportation. Many companies use hydrogen peroxide to sanitize these cotton balls. The USP has now defined thresholds for hydrogen peroxide residues in cotton which is used as a packaging component with pharmaceuticals. The USP 670 draft states that, in the future, no more than 50 ppm of peroxide will be permissible per gram of cotton fiber (Volume 34, Issue 6 In-Process Revision: <670> CONTAINERS-Auxiliary Packaging Components). It recommends the Reflectoquant® peroxide test for reliable in-process monitoring.

EMD Millipore Offers the Reflectoquant® Peroxide Test for Two Measuring Ranges:

  • 0.2 – 20 mg/l*
  • 100 – 1000 mg/l 

*The test for the lower measuring range is the one which is recommended by the USP for the application described.

The Advantages of Reflectoquant® Peroxide Tests at a Glance:
  • reliable and fast
  • recommended by the USP
