CID Bio-Science acquires CP Pigment Analyzer technology

May 16, 2017

The technology of the CP Pigment Analyzer, manufactured by CP, has been acquired by CID Bio-Science and its sister company, Felix Instruments-Applied Food Science.

CID Bio-Science and Felix Instruments plans to implement the Pigment Analyzer into its range of instruments using NIR technology. The United States-based company employs a range of instruments aiding researchers in several fields of plant physiology and postharvest study.

The practice of spectroscopy and its application on fruit and vegetables has been integrated in the Felix Instruments F-750 Produce Quality Meter.  In many case studies, the F-750 Produce Quality Meter and its ability to determine and predict maturity has greatly benefited the produce and post-harvest markets, according to Felix Instruments.
