SOUTH HACKENSACK, NJ, -C.W. Brabender® Instruments, Inc./ -- C.W. Brabender® Instruments, Inc. is pleased to announce its alliance with Intelligent Sensor Technology, Inc. (Japan) as their sales representation in North America, Central America and South America for the revolutionary Taste Sensing System TS-5000Z .
The Taste Sensing System TS-5000Z employs the same mechanism as the human tongue through the use of multi-channel artificial lipid membrane sensors which imitate the taste reception of food goods and pharmaceuticals and interprets them as numerical data. The quantification of taste data is handled via original algorithms and can be displayed in various ways through a rich array of graphing tools. In addition to the evaluation of initial taste, the instrument also measures aftertaste - the persistent taste that remains in the mouth after food has been swallowed. Even aspects of aftertaste such as "richness", "sharpness", "bitterness" and "astringency" can be measured.
C.W. Brabender® Instruments, Inc. is truly excited to bring this next evolution in taste sensory measurement to the North American, Central American and South American markets for use in a variety of fields including, but not limited to, Quality Control, Product Development, Marketing and Sales. With more than 300 units already sold worldwide, we truly look forward to showing our territories the vast potential that this instrument has in both the food and pharmaceutical industries.
