LABCELL INTRODUCES AQUALAB PRE, AN ENTRY LEVEL WATER ACTIVITY ANALYSER

Labcell is introducing the new Decagon Devices AquaLab Pre water activity analyser, an entry-level instrument that costs substantially less than the high-end AquaLab Series 4TE yet delivers higher performance than the pocket-sized Pawkit water activity meter. This fast, accurate and affordable instrument will create new opportunities for companies in the food industry that have previously been unable to justify the purchase of a water activity analyser.

The new instrument will be useful throughout the food industry supply chain for quality assurance checks on ingredients and production, as well as in the development of new products and packaging. Because it is so easy to operate, clean and calibrate, the AquaLab Pre can be used by operatives with only minimal training.

In common with the higher-specification AquaLab Series 4TE, the AquaLab Pre uses chilled mirror dewpoint technology to make fast, accurate measurements. Readings are obtained in five minutes or less, and the accuracy is +/-0.01 aw over the full measurement range of 0.05 to 1.00 aw. The sample temperature is maintained at 25 degrees C, so users can be confident of achieving consist results. Measured values are indicated on an integral two-line alphanumeric display, and data can also be output to a PC and/or printer for storage and subsequent analysis.

Labcell is the sole distributor for Decagon Devices in the UK and Ireland, and demonstration instruments are available for customers interested in seeing the new AquaLab Pre water activity analyser. For more information about this and other laboratory instruments for applications in the food industry, visit www.labcell.com, email mail@labcell.com or telephone +44 (0)1420 568150.
