Camas, WA – May 4th, 2017

Felix Instruments- Applied Food Science will be at CPMA 2017 in Toronto where they will be available to demonstrate their tools for measuring fresh fruit quality.

Alongside their entire range of ethylene gas analyzers, Felix Instruments will feature F-940 Store It! Gas Analyzer - a handheld tool that measures ethylene, CO2, and O2. The ‘Store It!’ was designed for Quality Assurance staff to increase shelf-life and prevent spoilage by taking rapid and reliable measurements of ripening gases throughout the storage process.

Felix Instruments’ Application Scientists will also have the F-750 Produce Quality Meter available for demonstration. The F-750 Produce Quality Meter is an instrument that takes non-destructive measurements of internal qualities, like sugar and dry matter, in fruit using NIR (Near Infrared) spectroscopy.

As featured in the late March edition of, the F-750 has been successfully applied to multiple commodities, most recently sweet cherries and avocados, alongside its long and successful history as a non-destructive tool for determining mango maturity and optimizing harvest timing. Find these validated results in ongoing studies where Felix Instruments partnered with researchers at Central Queensland University.
