Hydra for Laboratory analyzes a fruit juice doped with sugar

Are we able to understand whether there is some added some sugar to a sample of fruit juice? If we are using a sensitive device Hydra for laboratory we are sure we can do it. You don’t think it is possible? We will show you.

What is Hydra for laboratory?

Hydra for Laboratory is an innovative UV-VIS spectrometer designed for the food industry. With Hydra For Laboratory it is possible to analyze raw materials, semi-finished products, waste and finished product to deduct the hygienic and organoleptic characteristics of the product.It has a very high sensitivity: it manages to identify very small variations in the UV-VIS spectrum, determining the type of variation: from the incidence of the machines in the production process to the presence of pollutants, allergens or doping.The software allows to determine the spectral differences in multiple color spaces (CIE XYZ, CIE Lab, Hunter Lab, CIE Luv, CMYK, HSL, etc.), indices of divergence between spectral curves and colorimetric distance calculations (CIE76, CIE94, CIEDE2000, etc.). Communication between Hydra and the PC is via a comfortable WiFi connection (IEEE 802.11 b/g/n/a-c), therefore, it can be strategically placed anywhere. 

Caronte Space Color

The UV-VIS spectrum is composed of thousands of points and is very intricate: interpreting it and understanding which frequencies are the most important variations to consider can be a serious problem.Hydra for laboratory’s software offers the possibility to examine the graph CSC (Caronte Space Color): in this chart, you can see the frequencies where the main differences between the various samples are concentrated.CSC is an index, therefore, that intuitively represents the differences between the various samples examined and is the result of continuous experiments that Caronte Consulting has conducted together with its customers, identifying with them the best way to make the operator understand how to correctly interpret the spectral differences.
