New infrared method of identification of natural milk

Taking into consideration keen interest to our new product (Laktan 900 Superfast IR milk analyzer) and growing market need for practical application of the Infrared method/technology we would like to update our customers and partners on the results achieved at the current stage of our project.

At present we are completing testing of the latest improved version of Laktan 900 after modification which takes into account the requirements of the Indian market. Simultaneously with this work we are preparing for launching of serial/mass production of this model for execution of the bulk orders on hand.


Besides we wish to inform our foreign colleagues that currently research work for development and approval of this method (Optical Method of Identification of Natural Milk) is carried out at the All-Russian Research Institute of Optical and Physical Measurements (VNIIOFI), Moscow, one of the oldest and the most reputed Scientific and Research Institutes in this field in Russia.

According to the information published on the official web-site of Rosstandart (Federal Agency for Technical Regulating and Metrology of Russian Federation) November 6th, 2014 the new method of identification of natural milk was presented by research scientists of the All-Russian Scientific Institute of Optical and Physical Measurements to the Assistant Chairman of the Russian Federation Government Mr. Gennady Onischenko and the Head of Rosstandart (Federal Agency for Technical Regulating and Metrology) Mr. Alexey Abramov.

Preliminary research work (incl. analysis of various types of milk) has been conducted at the laboratory of optical spectral instruments of the All-Russian Scientific Institute of Optical and Physical Measurements.

Uniqueness of the method developed at the All-Russian Scientific Institute of Optical and Physical Measurements is that milk quality is determined by means of optical measurement of distribution/ dispensing of micron and nanoscale particles in milk.

Having acquainted himself with the results Mr. Gennady Onischenko pointed out that it necessary for the team of the Institute to continue this work; he also emphasized importance of the elaborating of the instrument base for practical application of the given method.

As of today there is a clear understanding of importance and urgency of this direction for Dairy Industry at all levels in Russia, and the state budget funds are allocated for implementation of this scientific project.There is no doubt that the given theme and scientific problem (development of the optical/infrared method of milk analysis) as well as development of a new affordable for the mass market IR milk analyzer for practical application of the given method are extremely complicated scientific problems, at the same time these are very important and urgent tasks, and Sibagropribor has already made a significant contribution on implementation of this task.
