A complete system is now available for performing the Gelatin Bloom Strength Test. The system includes Brookfield’s enhanced CT3 texture analyzer for measuring bloom strength, two baths and one refrigeration unit for gelatin preparation.

The enhanced texture analyzer reportedly combines simplicity of operation for users at all levels of experience with an expanded test method capability in both compression and tension modes of operation. A variety of standard probes (e.g., cones, cylinder, blades, balls, punches) and fixtures (e.g., extrusion, cell, shear cell, grips, etc.) are available for a multitude of regular applications, as well as customized equipment for specific requirements.
