FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
CARBO ANALYTICS SIGNS COLLABORATIVE DEVELOPMENT CONTRACT WITH MAJOR FOOD & BEVERAGE COMPANY
FORT COLLINS, CO, November 26th, 2013 – Carbo Analytics (http://www.carboanalytics.com), developers of sugar analysis systems, today announced that it has signed a collaborative application development contract with a major food & beverage company.
When faced with a major breach in the protection of an agricultural raw material, its yield and its downstream product quality, a major food & beverage company approached Carbo Analytics to investigate the use of its lab-on-chip technology. Parallel to the research work that is currently underway within the recognized federal and academic institutions, Carbo Analytics task is to conduct a feasibility study to establish the applicability of the capillary electrophoresis technology as an early warning system. That will allow the customer to identify a problem early on and implement appropriate measures right away. The feasibility work includes multiple weeks of laboratory work of various compounds to establish the optimized analysis chemistry as well as the target compounds calibration curves. Dr. Thomas Reilly is taking the lead in this effort with the assistance of a newly hired graduate chemist. “The request for the feasibility study underlines the importance of advancing novel and ground breaking technologies such as ours, and we anticipate future contracts of same or similar nature to become a crucial part of our business.” said Dr. Dale Willard who negotiated the application development contract.
About Carbo Analytics
Carbo Analytics develops systems that give accurate sugar analysis, simply and quickly, for the biofuel, brewing & distilling and food processing industries. Their patented microfluidic microchip technology, referred to as Lab-on-a-Chip, puts the functionality of HPLC pumps, valves, injection loops, detectors, and columns onto a simple replaceable microchip to separate and individually measure sugars such as monosaccharides (glucose, fructose and galactose) and disaccharides (sucrose, lactose and maltose). The technology combines Capillary Electrophoresis (CE) to separate components and Pulsed Amperometric Detection (PAD) to measure them.
