Quality Control in the Slaughterhouse


tec5 technology is used in a on-line NIR based instrument for determining depth profiles of fatty acid composition in porcine fat tissue. The NitFom™ system from Frontmatec in Denmark represents a breakthrough in bringing analysis of fat quality to work directly on the kill floor. It allows the slaughterhouse to manage and control fat quality in relation to all aspects of pork [or beef] production.  more...
