Small, compact and easy to use

We are very happy with the short overall analysis time for standard malts, and there is no extended extraction process required, unlike current ASBC method. Ready to use straight out of the box, no extra chemicals or reagents are required to be made up, hence fewer risks posed to staff members through handling of hazardous chemicals. Results are very comparable to our current method.

Rapid and precise!

The values obtained by using the GlycoSpot method were in the range of ±5 WK, which is better than the repeatability r95, as given by ANALYTICA EBC.
We have decided to use this method in our routine laboratory. As the method is easy to handle, rapid and precise, we will replace the existing method and will also enhance the frequency of analytical checks.

Testing more than ever!

Durst Malz was founded in 1824 in Heidelsheim near Bruchsal. Today Durst Malz, with its 3 locations in Germany, has an annual capacity of 200.000 tons of malt. We produce many types of malt for breweries in Germany and the whole world. Our aim is to produce malt with the highest quality. For the diastatic power we used the traditional malt test methods but after trialing the SIRIUS and the GlycoSpot platform, we are happy. The ease of use and simplicity behind the method is unmatched. The GlycoSpot method saves time and we can test more in the same time. Now Durst Malz is using GlycoSpot´s test method for barley malt, beta amylase, as the main method and we have fully integrated it in our process. The repeatability is very good and we recommend the GlycoSpot method 100%!

Test methods specific for barley malt

We offer application specific alpha- and beta-amylase (DP) test methods for barley malt. In this way you don’t need to worry about the hassle of implementation and validation.

The reading is via a built-in calibration model converted to international recognized units of your choice and stored directly in a cloud database to enable full data-connectivity.​

Forget all about complicated multi-step procedures and complex data crunching – It’s all integrated in our Plug and Play solution.

Our assays are calibrated up against EBC standards and are suitable for both process optimization and product release.

The test-kit and SIRIUS-spectrophotometer are portable and safe-to-use and can be set up anywhere – in the lab or where you best see fit.
