Banks of 12 MicroPods can show true ml/kg/CO2 by calculating sample weight, volume, and CO2 production.
Typical time to gain a respiration indication is up to 1.5 hours. The MicroPod will automatically stop when a valid sample is achieved or a programmable elapsed time has occurred.
Small volumes of fruit samples help make educated marketing decisions. The respiration data gathered quickly and easily from these small samples in the MicroPod allows the user to determine which lots may be respiring more quickly, which is to say, which lots have the shortest shelf life remaining, and thus would be more beneficial to push.
Two sizes are available for the MicroPod: 330mL and 740mL, and the disposable cup inside the Pod makes for easy cleanup.
