Elementar UK launches robust and efficient honey adulteration testing system

BiovisION Honey, a robust and ultra-efficient analytical tool for the detection of honey adulteration, has been launched by Elementar UK.

The new IRMS analysis platform is specifically designed for comprehensive honey sample analysis, and utilises innovative high-temperature combustion technology to eliminate downtime, automate key processes and increase sample throughput.

Elementar UK has designed and launched BiovisION Honey in response to growing demand for a more reliable approach to honey analysis. With honey adulteration on the rise, food labs depend on IRMS platforms to identify products with added sugars, or those that have been falsely mislabelled as being from a specific geographic region.
However, many current systems lack robustness, resulting in considerable downtime and a high cost per analysis. BiovisION Honey solves this by using high-temperature combustion methods to analyse honey samples, a far more efficient approach than the wet chemical techniques used by other commercial IRMS systems.

The BiovisION Honey approach avoids the frequent maintenance issues and time-consuming “babysitting” required with wet chemical analysis, meaning honey analysis labs can avoid the downtime and high costs that many currently struggle with. A head-to-head analysis against the Thermo Scientific LC IsoLink – one of the leading honey analysis tools currently on the market – has shown that BiovisION Honey is simpler to use and requires much less frequent maintenance, delivering significant cost-effectiveness benefits compared to its competitor.
