Dedicated for beer, malt, and wort analysis, the Thermo Scientific Gallery Plus Beermaster Discrete Analyzer automates labor-intensive and time-consuming bitterness quality control tests. Using discrete cell technology, the analyzer simultaneously automates the determination of many analytes including beta-glucan, FAN, and SO2 from the same sample. This enables fast turnaround and expansion of your laboratory’s analytical capabilities. The Bitterness Column Module (BCM) in the Gallery Plus Beermaster Discrete Analyzer enables unique automated pretreatment and measurement for bitterness. The discrete analyzer can accommodate 180 samples and 42 reagents in its separated sample and reagent disks, with the capacity to perform up to 350 tests/hour, and approximately 8 bitterness tests/hour with the BCM.

Automated bitterness testing

The Bitterness unit (BCM), an integrated coated capillary column within the Gallery Plus Beermaster discrete analyzer, includes unique automated pretreatment and measurement for bitterness. The traditional manual test for bitterness is slow and laborious, and uses liquid-liquid extraction with isooctane, which must be disposed of properly. The system’s bitterness module, on the other hand, uses ‘green’ solid-phase extraction ahead of a fully-automated testing protocol. During the automated process, the beer bittering substances are first extracted from interfering compounds present in the sample matrix, and then measured at 275 nm approximately eight bitterness tests per hour. With the BCM in use, the Gallery Plus Beermaster discrete analyzer can accommodate 72 samples. Your lab will increase efficiency in beer, malt, and wort quality control while saving significant time in sample pretreatment and analysis—ultimately improving lab productivity.

High throughput Environmental Analysis

Drinking water safety is clearly a critical priority. The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency, through the Safe Drinking Water Act, has established national health based standards that address both man-made and naturally occurring contamination. Labs must ensure municipal or industrial wastewater is safe before its discharge into surface waters in accordance with regulations in the U.S. EPA Clean Water Act (CWA). Compliance requires consistent, accurate measurement of water parameters. Our discrete analyzers automate photometric and electrochemical analysis providing fast, reproducible results that allow laboratories to measure multiple analytes simultaneously.
