Celsis has introduced a range of new features for its Celsis Cellscan Innovate platform. The innovations help dairy manufacturers and packers maximize testing volume and uptime, remotely access and manage system data, and comply more easily with track-and-trace regulations.

“Celsis iDairy is a suite of enhancements for the market-leading Innovate system that will help dairy micro labs thrive in today’s challenging environment by enabling them to work faster, safer and smarter,” said Judy Madden, Celsis vice president.

Dairy manufacturers are saving time and money with Celsis Rapid Detection-including an average five-year net present value of $500,000 or more-by shortening their product testing times from four to seven days to 24 to 48 hours. This allows for reduced inventories and faster response to contamination when it occurs. The new features and options added to the Celsis Innovate system help manufacturers and packagers operate more efficiently and improve their supply chain management.

Key Celsis iDairy innovations include:
•    Multi-user database. A single, easily searchable database for multiple Celsis instruments that makes internal and regulatory reporting fast and simple
•    Secure, remote access. Monitor Celsis product quality testing results, even run queries, from a central or remote location
•    24/7 online resource center. Compatible with new technology like the iPad, users can access system information anywhere, in real time
•    Statistics functions. Built-in flexibility to set dynamic thresholds

Celsis Innovate systems are used to rapidly and effectively screen a growing variety of UHT, aseptic and ESL dairy, food and beverage products-including syrups, soups and broths, brewed tea, sports and nutritional drinks, pudding, infant formula, condiments and sauces, nut milks, and fruit and vegetable juices.
