A typical case or tray packing line requires multiple machines to form, pack and seal cases or trays; however, Eagles Case/Tray Packing System All-In-One solution takes a flat blank and discharges a shelf or pallet-ready package. By replacing three or four machines, the Case/Tray Packer not only uses significantly less space, it also reduces the owners carbon footprint by requiring less energy.
There are numerous methods for detecting protein interactions and aggregation kinetics, each varying in sensitivity and specificity. Composition-Gradient Multi-Angle Light Scattering (CG-MALS) is an ideal means for measuring proteins in their natural solution: protein samples need not be tagged, immobilised on a surface, or otherwise modified from their natural state.

Since the third edition of this standard work was published in 1999, there has been a significant increase in the amount of chocolate manufactured worldwide.
Anthocyanins for improving eye function. The anthocyanins and bioflavinoids present in many blue and purple coloured berries, such as bilberries and blackberries, are known to have beneficial effects in improving night vision by stimulating the production of rhodopsine, which increases blood circulation in capillary vessels.
robagFXIS 3ci series
The tna robagFXIS 3ci series for polyethylene (PE) packaging is the latest addition to the revolutionary vertical form fill and seal (VFFS) tna robag range and is designed with performance, simplicity and flexibility in mind. The new range features the worlds first rotary impulse sealing jaws system for the efficient packaging of ready to eat fruit and fresh vegetables at bagging speeds of up to 150bpm with consistent quality.
Automated high throughput LC-MS solution
An innovative LC-MS system with high resolution and accurate mass, the EQuan MAX enables new screening and quantitative capabilities that provide enhanced system flexibility and productivity. The instrument uses the power of the Exactive LC-MS, a high resolution benchtop LC-MS system powered by Oribtrap technology, designed for high throughput. In addition, the EQuan MAX can be used with the companys full range of TSQ series triple stage quadrupole mass spectrometers, providing a comprehensive solution for the analysis of pesticides, pharmaceuticals, personal care products, endocrine disruptors and perfluorinated compounds in environmental water, drinking water and beverages. Samples are directly injected for LC/MS analysis, eliminating the need for off-line sample preconcentration. The unique online sample preparation technique reduces analysis time from days to minutes. The large injection volume (1-20mL) improves detection limits over conventional LC-MS analysis. In addition, the EQuan MAX supports injection volumes as low as 1µL. Switching between injection volumes can be automated for overnight operation and increased productivity, without the need to manually change plumbing configurations.

Dictionary of Flavors provides information on flavours, flavour chemistry and natural products, as well as a perspective on the related fields of regulatory, sensory, chemistry, biology, pharmacology, business, bacteriology, marketing and psychology. Flavours covered include those used in food and beverages, tobacco flavourings, alcoholic beverages, and pet and animal foods. Comparative flavour chemistry is used to evaluate and describe homologous groups of similar chemical structures. Coverage in the second edition is extended to include the many significant and recent changes in the fields of flavour chemistry, food technology, and regulatory. Definitions of many items are expanded and inclusion of new items is extensive.
Nölke Pure Ingredients focusses natural animal protein concentrates. The company does not offer its customers ready-made products, but emphasises service and a high level of flexibility. All items manufactured at the Versmold site can be customised to meet clients individual requirements and specifications. The targeted use of different batches of raw materials for example, influences solubility and amino acid composition; the functionality of individual protein factors is defined by regulating the temperature and pH value. Fresh and natural ingredients are exclusively utilised to produce broths, stocks and extracts. Chicken, turkey and beef, as well as game and fish, provide the raw materials for the variety of choice products manufactured by the company. Production at the Versmold site focusses on wet goods; poultry extracts are also offered in powder form. Approximately 50% of the broths and stocks produced are exported, including halal-certified goods, specifically produced for the Muslim market. Animal protein concentrates are an indispensable ingredient of many convenience products. They are used in all types of ready meals such as soups, sauces, stocks, as well as pasta and pan-fried dishes. As chilled foods and frozen meals have been achieving high levels of sales in recent years, Nölke Pure Ingredients is participating in the high growth of this trend segment by focussing on the product area. The potential for ready meals has not been exploited by far. The companys cooperation with industrial customers
constantly opens up new application areas for functional proteins.

In the compact Astepo High Speed Low Acid bag-in-box filler (HS-LA), filling cycles are shortened by the use of electric servo motors controlling the aseptic filling head and bag feeder. Bags and fitment tooling can be changed quickly and easily and the machine can fill a wide range of bags and products using any commercial 1 spout type. Designed to meet market demand for a faster, even more reliable machine, the Alfa Laval Astepo HS-LA linear bag-in-box filler is suitable for high acid (pH <4.5) and low acid products (pH >4.5), such as juices, beverages, concentrated juices, purees, and dairy products like soft ice mix and flavoured UHT milk. Specially developed for the sterile filling of aseptic bags, from 3 to 25 litres (1/2-6 gallons) the filler is fully automatic in operation and gives a continuous filling process with a high level of reliability. Thanks to the implementation of brushless electric servo motor technology in the new filler, all the movements of the aseptic filling and the bag feeder are controlled and adjusted with extreme accuracy and smoothness of motion. This is what gives the machine the capability to fill up to 500 bags per hour, based on 10 litre bags. It also enables changeover of caps and volume to be achieved in minimum time. The bags are delivered pre-irradiated with gamma rays, with a wide variety of commercial caps of the flat rigid type, or dispensing caps, both thermal and non thermal resistant, with high or low fitments. In the Astepo HS-LA filler the parts in contact with the product are in stainless steel AISI 316. The filling valve has EHDGE certification and the machine is FDA compliant (USA). The filling head and all food contact surfaces are sterilized by steam, and the machine is fully C.I.P. cleanable. The caps are sterilized in the sterilizing tunnel with a monitored jet of vaporized hydrogen peroxide before being introduced into the filling head. All moving parts are protected by monitored steam barriers and the aseptic filling head is maintained sterile at a controlled temperature by overpressure of air. Integrated in the machine skid, the air group comprises two sterile micro filters and food grade electric heaters for heating the air that goes into the chamber and the tunnel at a monitored flow and temperature. The Astepo HS-LA filler is managed by a PLC with an operator interface terminal featuring a touch screen. It is equipped with autodiagnostics for product traceability and a fail-safe system for continuous control of the sterile conditions of the plant.
