Beverage Testing with the MQuant® StripScan Mobile App
contributed by MilliporeSigma |
pH and nitrate content are two of the key parameters used to measure the quality and safety of food and beverages (F&B). Generally, pH measurements are carried out using pH strips, pH meters, or electrodes, whereas spectrophotometers or electrodes are used for measuring nitrate content. This article examines the use and efficiency of the MQuant® StripScan mobile app to measure the pH of orange juice samples and nitrate concentration of mineral water samples. The results indicate towards the possible use of the MQuant® StripScan mobile app as a viable alternative to more sophisticated and instrument-based methods for pH and nitrate measurements in food and beverage analysis.
