The LACTOSENS® test kit is changing the way the food industry ensures that lactose-free dairy products truly are lactose free. Some dairy producers are already benefiting from the ease, speed and accuracy of this sensor, and now LACTOSENS® comes with an international certification confirming just how precise the results are.
LACTOSENS® has obtained the NordVal International Certificate, which confirms that LACTOSENS® in a few minutes can measure lactose levels with the same precision as the reference method – high-performance liquid chromatography (HPLC) at ISO 17025 accredited labs. As the HPLC method requires expensive equipment and highly trained personnel, samples usually need to be sent to an external lab and it takes approximately two days to receive results.
“LACTOSENS® is ideal for both process control and product release at dairies,” says Jes Jensen, Test and Equipment director at Chr. Hansen. “It is the fastest and easiest method available, documenting accurate results in just one minute. We hope that the independent assessment by NordVal International means that even more dairies try this exceptional sensor.”
Rapid results – the easy way
LACTOSENS® enables in-house testing to measure the concentration of residual lactose in dairy products within minutes. The system secures complete traceability, including batch number and expiry date, to document low lactose/lactose-free claims for every product batch.
“LACTOSENS® is very easy to use,” says Jes Jensen, “The results are so quick, meaning that products can be confirmed and released in minutes. LACTOSENS® is truly revolutionizing the way the dairy industry tests for lactose.”
