Inline/online microbiology sensor technology

Background

In the dairy industry, microbiological quality of a production batch is usually determined off-line afterwards. A rapid analysis method during the production run would enable FrieslandCampina to control and steer its processes for optimal microbiological quality.

Description of the need

We are interested in evaluating new/novel technologies for rapid in-line or at-line detection of microbiological quality. In order to serve as early-warning process control tool, the solution should deliver result within 10 minutes. Scope: both liquid and powder processing.
