Resumen:
Un instituto de investigación singapurense ha desarrollado un dispositivo para monitorizar la calidad de la leche mediante tintes fluorescentes. Este dispositivo se utiliza por los propietarios de explotaciones lácteas para analizar la calidad de la leche que producen. Actualmente el instituto está probando el producto mínimamente viable en campo antes de licenciar la tecnología para fines comerciales. El dispositivo es un punto de inflexión potencial para la industria, como el sector lácteo, venta de alimentos al por menor y restaurantes, ya que la leche es una parte importante de la cadena de suministro de estas industrias. El principal indicador de la leche es la grasa. El dispositivo utiliza señales fluorescentes para medir la cantidad de grasa presente en la leche producida. Se busca una pyme o multinacional para establecer acuerdos de licencia o cooperación en materia de investigación.

Details

Tittle:
Fluorescence detector for quantitative and instantaneous milk fat determination to facilitate milk quality control.
Summary:
A Singapore research institute has developed a device to monitor the quality of milk using fluorescence dyes. This device will be ideal for dairy farm owners to test the quality of the milk produced.

At present, the institute is testing the Minimum-Viable-Prototype in the field before licencing this technology for commercial purposes.

The research institute is keen to partner SMEs of any sizes and MNEs through licensing and research cooperation agreements.
Description:
As hitherto available testing techniques used to assess milk quality are expensive, the research institute has developed a cost effective and portable device called the fluorescence detector.

This device can be a potential game-changer for industries such as dairy, food retail, and restaurants as milk forms an important part of the supply chain in these industries.

The key indicator of milk quality is milk fat. This device uses fluorescence signals to measure the amount of fat present in the milk produced.

The device leverages a particular variety of fluorescence dye which is non-toxic. When this dye is subjected to light, the fluorescent signal indicator varies based on the fat concentration in milk to accurately indicate milk quality.

The research institute is keen to establish the following types of partnerships with industry players (SMEs of any size or MNEs):

i) Licensing agreement to commercialise the technology. The partner can license the technology for further development and offer it to their customers.

ii) Research cooperation for co-development of new products - The Singapore research institute can work with the partner on a joint development effort to bring new products to the market.
Advantages and Innovations:
· The fluorescence detector is non-hazardous, unlike other detection techniques, such as infrared analysis.

· It provides accurate and specific measurement of milk fat molecules owing to the clear indication provided by the variations observed in the fluorescence signals.

· The detector is less costly compared to other technologies as it uses the cost-effective solution of fluorescence.

· The device is portable, making it easy to use for dynamic testing of milk quality in milk co-operatives, rural and sub-urban dairy farms.

· The technology can be licenced in order to enable outreach to a larger audience across the globe.
