Felix Instruments- Applied Food Science
, is eager to announce their newest instrument.
The F-751 Avocado Quality Meter is now available for pre-order.

Felix Instruments- Applied Food Science is an industry leader in gas analysis and produce quality meters for the postharvest community.

“We are excited to have an affordable instrument that avocado growers can use anywhere, from the field to the packing houses to the retailers. This instrument can give non-destructive accurate maturity and ripeness data from anywhere that avocado is.”
-Dennis Fisher, Application Scientist at Felix Instruments- Applied Food Science

Based on the original F-750 Produce Quality Meter, the F-751 Avocado Quality Meter is specifically engineered to gauge the ripeness of Avocados via dry-matter assessment. The instrument comes equipped with Shepard and Hass starter models for data collection.

Benefits of the Avocado Quality Meter include a more in-depth avocado model for measuring dry matter, as well as a significantly smaller price tag than the F-750 Produce Quality Meter.

The Avocado Quality Meter also comes with the ability to use Fruit Maps, the free interactive harvest map application co-created by Felix Instruments and Central Queensland University.

“We recognized a need for a simple, hardy, field-worthy instrument that can give fast, accurate results to growers about the ripeness of their avocados. Our hope and goal is that the use of one or several of the Avocado Quality Meters will help growers more accurately gauge a harvest date, and in the process, save on unnecessary labor costs. While the initial aim was to decrease loss, the potential to increase profits by giving an accurate shipping estimation is just another bonus to this instrument.”
-Chelsea Gaya, Marketing Manager.
