The TA.XTExpress Texture Analyzer is controlled by either a keypad or by Exponent Lite Express or Expression texture analysis software. Test profiles are stored for immediate use and the results analyzed automatically using either 'built-in' standards, such as TPA and Bloom or product specific procedures.

Measurements can be taken 'on-line' or in laboratory settings. The results form the foundation of on-going Quality Control procedures. This information may be used, for example, to measure textural quality, identify source and batch variation and predict consumer acceptability.

The TA.XTExpress Enhanced Texture Analyzer has a 10kg.f capacity (500g.f optional) in compression and tension with a measurement resolution of better than 0.1g. It has a speed range 0.1 - 10.00mm/s and a stroke of 0.1 - 135mm.
