Frequently Asked Questions

Can the MQS measure all types of meat and fish?

Yes, it can give a freshness index for any type. However, it can currently only measure expiration dates on these types:

  • Pork
  • Ground beef & Beef steaks
  • Salmon
  • Tuna
I just bought this piece of meat or fish, why does the sensor say it's bad?

Besides the meat or fish not being fresh anymore, a fluctuation in results can be caused by:

MAP wrapping

A MAP package often has a build-up of cadaverine and other odours when it is opened, which can have a direct effect on the measurement. Therefore, we recommend waiting a few minutes before measuring meat that has been in a MAP package.

The temperature of the meat is too high

Measuring meat that is over 10 degrees celsius can give an incorrect result. Check that the temperature of the meat is below 10 degrees, preferably between 2-5 degrees.

The cartridge is saturated

If the meat is at the correct temperature, the cartridge may be saturated after a previous measurement. You can wait till the cartridge has rested, take a new cartridge or perform a calibration. 

What happens if MQS detects that the meat or fish has expired?

You can dispose of the meat or fish.

How accurate is MQS in measuring the expiration date of meat and fish?

Measurements with AmiNIC meat and fish types have a safety limit of one day.

Can MQS be used on frozen meat and fish?

No, MQS can only be used on meat and fish between 2-10 degrees celsius.

How do I clean MQS? Are there specific cleaning instructions?

Yes, you can read about cleaning the sensor in the User Manual in the ‘General use, storage and cleaning’ section.
