Our MIRA IR milk analyzer was tested in early 2020 for short term reproducibility as well as for repeatability and accuracy. The samples tested included raw milk, skim milk and cream. This represents the typical applications of the MIRA. It came pre-calibrated, and neither calibration nor setup were changed during the test period.
The reference methods used for evaluation of accuracy of the instrument were the methods used for milk payment in French and international dairy plants.
ACTALIA Cecalait concluded that the MIRA instrument provides good repeatability, stability and performance. As a result, it was regarded as compliant with related ISO and IDF standards.
Designed with a small footprint, the MIRA is ideal for the use in a laboratory or an at-line process lab. The robust instrument with built-in homogenizer is resistant to vibration and other environmental influences. Moreover, the internal sample heating will ensure reproducible and reliable results including freezing point determination.
