Technical data sheet
A slurried sample is taken through a programmed heat-hold-cool cycle while the viscosity is continuously measured. Differences from the Visco-Amylograph include much smaller sample sizes and the ability to program heating and cooling rates that can change much more quickly than the Amylograph.
Food and Food Ingredients
Low-viscosity liquids (i.e. vegetable oil)
Auto-analyzer with fluorescence detection
Internally-developed methods and AACC methods for grains and grain milling products:
- AACC 22-08
- AACC 61-02
- AACC 76-21
RVU (Rapid Visco Units)
Sample size requirements
Information required by submitter
Because each segment of the grain industry uses different sample sizes and temperature profiles, the customer must supply a method reference with the samples. Medallion Labs prefers AACC methods.
This test is ISO/IEC 17025 accredited through A2LA, Certificate # 2769.01. High iron content may interfere with the reaction chemistry. Vitamin concentrate results typically have higher-than-normal method variability.
