Analyzer helps cheese company greatly reduce costs of tests




A major U.S. hard cheese company was having difficulty finding qualified and experienced personnel that could conduct the necessary laboratory tests. These tests were being sent out to third party labs which resulted in an overall price of $68 per test. The QA Director was looking for a solution and turned to ESE because he had had previous experience with us.


ESE’s team implemented the Q5L laboratory analyzer, which provides accurate and reliable results for analysis of fat, protein, total solids, moisture, lactose and others. Within 60 days, ESE technical experts designed a plan, installed the system, trained routine users and assisted in developing and validating the models.


The ROI on ESE’s Q5L laboratory analyzer was 150 days and the average cost of the tests decreased from $68 to $1. By performing the tests in-house, there has been a dramatic reduction in product hold times and an increase in production throughput. The Q5L was so successful that the customer is expanding its use for additional products in the facility.
