Company will Showcase Innovative Dairy Sampling
Solution Co-Developed with QualiTru
Auburn, AL– Aptar CSP Technologies –a leader in packaging solutions that ensure product protection, enhance brand recognition and improve consumer experiences – will exhibit at the IDF World Dairy Summit, October 15-19 in Daejeon, Korea. Along with product co-developer QualiTru, Aptar CSP Technologies will showcase a revolutionary TruDraw®, aseptic milk sampling system.
TruDraw® provides the highest possible protection against environmental exposure affecting a sample’s accuracy. The comprehensive aseptic sampling system also incorporates a tamper-evident feature by means of a security seal that is irrevocably destroyed upon first opening, diminishing the likelihood of a sample’s adulteration prior to its testing.
Therefore, TruDraw® represents a potentially game-changing innovation in aseptic milk sampling, in which accuracy is of utmost importance. The monetary compensation farmers receive is directly tied to their products’ purity, thus emphasizing the need for effective and safe sampling. The TruDraw®system is an innovative, easy to use solution to this necessity within the dairy industry.
Co-developed with QualiTru, TruDraw® is designed for use in conjunction with QualiTru’s TruStream® sanitary sampling ports. TruDraw® allows for drawing from the side or rear of a trailer, eliminating the need to climb atop it during sampling. For decades, the predominant manner of sampling has involved collecting raw milk from atop milk tankers with dippers, a method prone to external contamination from the surrounding environment or, especially, improperly cleaned and handled dippers.
TruDraw® is easy to use, with drawing and storing a sample intentionally simplified to allow effortless handling even in inclement weather. The certified sampling person simply twists the system’s blue cap into alignment with the vial’s tab and hinge, respectively, then presses down on the blue cap until it pierces through the vial’s lid. After removing the needle’s safety cover, TruDraw® is inserted into the sampling septum, and product is drawn into the container. Once filled, the certified sampling person removes and discards the blue cap, with the sample securely and aseptically sealed until the tamper-evident label is broken at the testing facility.
“TruDraw® presents a solution to a longstanding obstacle within the dairy industry,” said Aurélie Kientz, Business Development Manager Diary for Aptar CSP Technologies. “Showcasing the system to attendees of the IDF World Dairy Summit is a fundamental step in establishing more precise solutions such as TruDraw® as an industry standard moving forward.”
