Galaxy Scientific announces availability of new Compact Heated Liquid Sampler

The compact heated liquid sampler is used with Galaxy Scientific’s QuasIR 2000 fiber based FT-NIR spectrometer to analyze liquid-based products’ samples. It features a temperature-controlled fiber-coupled main sample chamber along with a preheating chamber which is designed to hold multiple samples at a time. The compact heated liquid sampler has an easy to read 3.2” touch screen interface where the temperature values are displayed and set.

Galaxy Displayed Latest NIR Analyzers at EAS19

The Eastern Analytical Symposium and Exposition has ended, and Galaxy Scientific was pleased to have exhibited this year. EAS is an annual event that provides continued education, including a look into new technologies, for scientists and students in the analytical and allied sciences. The symposium featured papers, workshops, and short courses in addition to oral and award sessions, special lectures and poster sessions.

According to 2018 Program Chair, Christina Robb, “The 2018 Eastern Analytical Symposium celebrated the value of analytical science in the world at large. Themed “Analytical Solutions to the Worlds Problems”, the program combined talks over a wide variety of applications including water quality, food safety, forensic analysis, human health and disease, cultural heritage, mobile measurement, proteomics, pharmaceutical analysis, metabolomics, materials, and the environment. The application-oriented talks were matched by presentations dedicated to the advancement of the specific analytical techniques of measurement including HILIC, mass spectrometry, multi-dimensional chromatography, GC, solid-state NMR, ion chromatography, LIBS, ICP-MS, SFC, solution-state NMR, FTIR, Raman spectroscopy and microscopy. Focusing on the complete skill set practitioners to require, EAS also featured talks on regulatory affairs, compliance, CRO/CMOS, and lab management.”

Presenting the latest in equipment, services, and technologies, over 100 exhibitors, including Galaxy Scientific, offered product developments in NIR, FT-NIR, and more. Galaxy Scientific displayed their innovative high-performance portable QuasIR™ Series of FT-NIR analytical instruments, designed to tackle critical diagnostic problems and engineered for field or lab use.

To be sure, Galaxy Scientific is already looking forward to EAS20.

FT-NIR for Measuring Meat Products

View the latest article from Galaxy Scientific. This application note will show a simple example of testing meat for basic macronutrient content using FT-NIR spectroscopy. A calibration is shown for fresh poultry meat that analyzes protein, fat, and moisture content. The calibration model is then tested for accuracy by comparing the output of the near-infrared analysis to a known reference value for each sample.

Galaxy’s FT-NIR Spectrometers Featured at VIV in Bangkok

Galaxy Scientific’s portable high-performance QuasIR series of Fourier transform near-infrared spectrometers were exhibited at the VIV Asia 2019 Feed and Food Show, which took place on March 13th-15th in Bangkok. The instruments were shown by Adisseo Asia Pacific Pte Ltd.

Adisseo gave live demonstrations using a QuasIR FT-NIR spectrometer in combination with their cloud-based PNE (Precise Nutrition Evaluation) NIR database to analyze various feed ingredients for the common proximate values such as protein, moisture, fat, fiber, etc.

In addition, it was demonstrated how the Galaxy Scientific spectrometer, with the Adisseo PNE database, measures digestible energies as well as key amino acids in commonly used feed ingredients. This quick cloud-based analysis provides feed producers with valuable information about the nutrients in their feed ingredients, enabling cost savings while maintaining animal nutrition performance.

Quantum Analytics Exhibiting at PITTCON

Galaxy’s QuasIR™ Series FT-NIR Spectrometers to be Featured

March 17-21
Pennsylvania Convention Center
Philadelphia PA

Quantum Analytic Booth #3436

From the Pittcon website: Pittcon’s target audience is not just “analytical chemists,” but all laboratory scientists — anyone who identifies, quantifies, analyzes or tests the chemical or biological properties of compounds or molecules, or who manages these laboratory scientists. Having grown beyond its roots in analytical chemistry and spectroscopy, Pittcon has evolved into an event that now also serves a diverse constituency encompassing life sciences, pharmaceutical discovery and QA, food safety, environmental, bioterrorism and other emerging markets.

Pittcon is a joint effort of the Spectroscopy Society of Pittsburgh (SSP) and the Society for Analytical Chemists of Pittsburgh (SACP).
