What you can analyze

A number of characteristics can be determined with great accuracy using analyzers from Perten Instruments. The most commonly determined parameters include:

Grains

Moisture, Starch, Protein, Oil, Fiber, Ash - DA 7250™ and IM 9500
Fermentable starch in grains, high tannin sorghums - RVA

Yeast propagation, Fermentation broth, Beer well

Ethanol, Glucose, Maltose, Lactic acid, Acetic acid, Glycerol, Brix, Dextrins (DP4+), DP3 - DA 7250™
Mash viscosity, lignocellulose liquefaction - RVA
Research has also been performed on using the RVA for determination of thermostable endoglucanases in the liquefaction. Click here to read an article about this research.

Wet Distiller's Grain

Moisture - DA 7250™

Dried Distiller's Grain

Moisture, Protein, Starch, Crude fiber, ADF, NDF, Ash - DA 7250™ and DA 7300™
