The LCM-500™ is a hand-held device for colour measurement. The device has been developed and calibrated to perform an objective assessment of colour in meat and elaborated meat products.
The LCM-500™ incorporates a high resolution colour CMOS sensor and an diffuse light illumination system. The device is controlled via PC or laptop and captures images that are instantly processed by means of a image analysis software specifically developed for the application.
Unlike traditional colorimeters, the image analysis software of the LCM-500™ removes any defect present in the image (e.g. glosses, fat spots, connective tissue, foreign objects), to obtain a real colour measurement of the lean meat.
