AppliTek unveils analytical solution to advance routine testing of beer bitterness

AppliTek has introduced a novel testing instrument for the automatic determination of international bitterness units in beer production, which will be unveiled at this year’s BrauBeviale in Nuremberg, Germany.

With Breweries now setting targets focused on reducing energy and water consumption, process control becomes an essential part of all modern brewing practices. More and more commitments are made in order to improve efficiency and water recycling, whilst adhering to environmental regulations and hygiene requirements. The quality of the final product, however, depends on rigorous control over a set of physical, chemical and microbiological parameters that have become standard in the beer industry in the 20th century.

International bitterness units is a standard measurement of the bitterness of beers, and represents the amount of alpha acids from the hops that have isomerised by the boiling process. The more alpha acids that are isomerised, the higher the actual bitterness in the final product. Given the huge variation in bitterness components, process conditions and perceived differences in taste, beer bitterness tests have become an essential part of quality control procedures in all commercial beer production, even for Microbreweries.

AppliTek marketing executive Emmanuel Coolsaet said: “Modern breweries are high-tech production sites that provide crafted beverages with the assurance of a constantly high standard of quality. Beer bitterness tests have become increasingly part of that standard.

“AppliTek’s role is to develop and provide the right analytical tool allowing our customers to achieve rapid and reproducible results, while increasing laboratory throughput. There is definitely a gap to fill with our technology. ”

The official premiere of the IBULyzer at BrauBeviale in November will signal the starting point of the international market launch of the analyser.

Sickle cell may get solution soon – scientists.

Published

Scientists in the U.S. have unveiled results of a small clinical trial that could mean an effective “cure” for sickle cell anemia, the painful and debilitating disease that inflicts many millions of people across the globe, mostly of African heritage and including some 100,000 African Americans in the U.S.



Researchers at the National Institutes of Health (NIH) say they have used gene therapy techniques to add a “corrected” gene for healthy red blood cells into the bodies of nine test patients, replacing their diseased red blood cells caused by sickle cell anemia and effectively ridding them of signs of the disease.

NIH Director Francis Collins described the trial results as seemingly “spectacular”.

“When you look at their blood counts and their blood smears, it looks like they don’t have it anymore,” Collins said on Monday (March 11) from his office at the NIH in Bethesda, Maryland, just outside Washington, D.C.

Sickle cell disease is an inherited blood disorder that causes protein crystals to form inside red blood cells, changing their shape from a flat disk into a crescent or sickle shape that then clogs up the small blood vessels and results in terrible episodes of pain and organ damage.

But they believe the basic premise of introducing a corrected gene into the body holds promise for Africa provided a simpler, cheaper and less toxic delivery system than bone marrow transplant and the accompanying chemotherapy can be found.
