FlavourSpec Food, Beverage, and Flavor Analyzer

Sensitive Analyzer for Food, Flavor and Beverage Testing

As the exclusive North American distributor for G.A.S. Instruments, Ohio Lumex is proud to offer the FlavourSpec Gas Chromatograph Ion Mobility Spectrometer (GC-IMS) with Autosampler for analysis of food, beverage, and flavor samples without pre-treatment.

The FlavourSpec can quantify single marker compounds as well as easily detect the appearance of new compounds or the differences in their concentrations to a reference sample. It is a similar concept to the "electronic nose," but instead uses a specific and reliable physical separation/detection of Volatile Organic Compounds (VOCs) by GC-IMS.


Designed especially for quality testing, the FlavourSpec features innovative functionalities with unparalleled user-friendliness due to its exceptional sensitivity (low ppb/L-range/µg) without the need to pre-treat samples.
