New - High Accuracy Therma 1T Digital Thermometer
The new Therma 1T digital thermometer from Electronic Temperature Instruments Ltd (ETI) utilises high accuracy (±0.2 °C) interchangeable type T thermocouple probes which offer both fast response and durability.

The Therma 1T thermometer is particularly suitable for food processing and foodservice applications where a guaranteed accuracy of better than 0.5 °C is required, (the minimum requirement of the current food safety legislation). Each instrument has a guaranteed accuracy of better than 0.2 °C; likewise the interchangeable probes also have an accuracy of 0.2 °C giving a guaranteed system accuracy of 0.4°C or better. This aspect is often overlooked by food professionals when selecting a thermometer for critical food temperature monitoring.

The unit is powered by three AAA batteries that give a minimum of 10,000 hours (or five years) use, powering off automatically after 10 minutes, maximising battery life. This feature can be disabled by the user if not required.

Measuring temperature over the range of -100 to 400 °C with a 0.1 °C resolution, the instrument is housed in a robust, ABS case that includes 'Biomaster' additive which reduces bacterial growth. The thermometer incorporates an easy to use miniature type T thermocouple connector, allowing a wide range of interchangeable probes to be used.

The Therma 1T meets the needs of food processing and foodservice professionals who don’t wish to pay for features they’ll never use and simply need a well-designed, robust economically priced food thermometer to check that food temperatures are within defined limits.

The Therma 1T thermometer is competitively priced, at £50 exclusive of VAT and carriage. An extensive of interchangeable probes are available, as are optional extras such as protective silicone boots and a stainless steel wall bracket.

Eurofins’ New System To Assist Shelf Life And Product Deterioration Assessment
Eurofins Food Testing UK has made significant investment in a new state of the art method for micro-organism identification, which, due to its ease of use, will enable clients to have same-day confirmation of results for pathogens, the organisms associated with food safety and spoilage.

Using MALDI-TOF (Matrix Assisted Laser Desorption Ionization-Time of Flight) Mass Spectrometry, the MALDI Biotyper, can identify bacteria, yeast and mould as well as groups of organisms such as multi-cellular fungi, which are usually difficult to analyse due to cultural conditions.

“MALDI-TOF helps us to identify organisms associated with food safety and spoilage by virtue of their unique molecular fingerprint. MALDI will speed up the process of notification of the outcome of presumptive results thereby reducing the level of wasted time and effort due to false positives. We are aiming to have accreditation to ISO17025 early in 2016.”

“It can also be used to identify unknown organisms that have not been originally targeted by cultural tests and this may be of use to identify, and to provide direction for investigations of any issues relating to product spoilage and shelf life”, explains Keith Watkins, Microbiology Specialist at Eurofins.
