Automated, affordable testing
of milk composition!
An ultra-user-friendly, affordable and automated
system, the LactiCheck™ provides fat, solids not
fat, protein, added water and lactose results simultaneously in just 40 seconds! A compact, closed
unit featuring simple, push-button operation,
the Model LC-RR is designed for testing both
unprocessed and processed cow (goat or sheep)
milk products.
Improved accuracy and
convenient calibration!
Based upon the latest advances in ultrasound
spectroscopy, the LC-RR provides an alternative
to tedious, time-consuming, bench-chemistry
methods for composition testing. Ease-of-use
and reliability make it a good back-up for other
automated systems as well! Featuring greater
accuracy in fat determination, the dual channels
are factory calibrated for full fat and reduced fat
milk. New LACTICAL™ milk-based controls and
simple, push-button procedures facilitate validation
and calibration as required.
Anywhere! Cow-side to customer
Affordable Approach to Real-Time Results
A Purchase Decision that Pays Off!
A practical alternative to previous options for milk
composition testing, the straightforward simplicity,
affordability and reliability of the LactiCheck bring the
benefits of technology to you today!
Artisanal Cheesemakers: Many cheesemakers had to
rely exclusively upon costly tests and experienced delays
in results by sending samples to independent laboratories. Now real-time results are achievable on-site.
Dairy Processors: The move from bench chemistry to
automation has been outside of the budget of many
small and mid-sized dairy processors. Costs of equipment, maintenance and training have been high – but
today there is an affordable alternative.
Large Dairy Processors: The LactiCheck is a costeffective back-up to fully automated infrared systems
and can easily be integrated into satellite positions
(milk receiving, production, etc.).
Rapid, objective results and automated recording,
reporting options save time, improving productivity.
Minimize the “sneaker network” by screening
incoming milk at the receiving station. Gain more
in-depth profiles on producers while freeing up
valuable lab resources.
Make the break from bench-chemistry testing to
automation and realize true transparency plus
improved process control!
Save valuable time during product change-overs
by giving Production at-line results. Reduce backups caused by heavy throughput and routine
maintenance requirements of other instruments
or personnel issues in the lab!

Ultrasound Spectroscopy:
Ultrasonics is a measurement modality that has been
recognized and highly utilized for more than 50 years in
a variety of fields and applications from medical diagnostics and therapeutics to process control analysis.
Ultrasonic (or acoustic) spectroscopy presents a practical
alternative to optic (or infrared) spectroscopy for material
analysis. This technique brings many distinct benefits
to dairy and food analysis, including the ability to readily
propagate thru opaque samples.
High frequency acoustical or sound waves probe
intermolecular forces within the sample.
By monitoring feedback relative to the attenuation
and velocity of the sound waves, levels of molecular
organization are characterized.
Compositional structure of fat and solids not fat
are directly measured; other parameters are
algorithmically determined using this data.
Results for milk composition are presented simultaneously on the readout and thru a standard RS-232
output, or RS-232/USB, for transfer to PC or Printer.
