The Journal of Visualized Experiments (JoVE) recently released the following video: “Introducing an Angle Adjustable Cutting Box for Analyzing Slice Shear Force in Meat”. This experiment is an excellent peer-reviewed piece by Tom Whitesell(1), Carmen Avilés(2), Jennifer L. Aalhus(1), Chris R. Calkins(3), Ivy L. Larsen(1), Manuel Juárez(1). This video is a great example of creative ways to use new technologies to communicate with an industry and we’re pleased that they chose to work with our equipment for their experiment.

The video features the TA.XTPlus Texture Analyzer the USDA Warner-Bratzler knife and guillotine block, flat rectangle blade for slice shear force, and load cell. The video is available until May 30th, 2013 for viewing at:
