Application with aroma and flavor ingredients in the food and pharmaceutical industry

Automated stability testing with the Alpha MOS FOX Electronic Nose provides important data on the effect of a variety of environmental factors such as temperature, humidity, and light conditions over a time period on product formulations or ingredients. Ingredients can be selected on the basis of their stability and recommended storage conditions and times can be established.

With the Alpha MOS electronic nose solutions, stability laboratories in the food and pharmaceutical industry can quickly and with confidence identify the ingredients, which perform best and provide the stability needed to insure good shelf life. The speed of the analysis makes it possible to test a larger variety of candidates under a broader range of experimental conditions, to have the data to make the right choices and get the formulation right the first time.
