Yields, Chemical Composition, and Value of Beef Shank Tissues Obtained Using Baader® Processing

A Stomacher® 400 was used as part of the study to homogenize beef tissue. The study showed that Baader processing can improve quality and add value to beef shanks by removing the sinew and increasing the lean percentage of the desinewed lean. Processed parts of the shank are more valuable than the whole shank due to sinew now being a legal sausage ingredient.

Genotoxic activity in human faecal water and the role of bile acids: a study using the alkaline comet assay

Faecal samples were collected and kept on ice before processing. Samples
were homogenized in a stomacher for 2 minutes in a Stomacher® 400.

The results of the present study indicate that the comet assay provides a powerful tool to investigate the genotoxicity of faecal water samples in a human colonic tumour cell line.

Comparison Of XRF, TXRF, AND ICP-MS Methods for determination of mercury in face cream

The purpose of this study was to develop, evaluate and compare, ICP-MS, XRF, and TXRF methods for accurate quantitation of mercury in 10 different face cream samples. The Stomacher® 80 was used as part of the XRF method.
