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.
The Stomacher® 400 is used as a key piece of equipment in the USDA methodology for meat species identification.
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.
The pooled samples were homogenised for 20 minutes in five times the faecal weight of cold water using a Stomacher® 3500.
This study lends further support to the theory that bile acids may play
a role in the development of polyps and colorectal cancer.
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.
