Determination of quality parameters of fillets

Technology description

The name of the technology: Determination of quality parameters of fillets
Challenge: Food quality and production methods have become primary issues in the context of consumer behaviour and the increased industrialisation and globalisation of the food supply chain. Consumers demand high quality and safety of fish and fish products, which require high standards in process control and quality assurance. Hyperspectral imaging as a technology analyzes physical and chemical properties in samples in an order of magnitude shorter than standard methods.
Description: SW for determining the quality parameters of the fillet allows the loading of scanned data, detection of the fillet area and subsequent prediction of parameters. Therefore, only input data are needed for evaluation, the subsequent analysis is carried out automatically. In addition, sw allows display of input data and their export to a format usable for MS Excel.
SW is a self-executable application that can be operated by a regular user. Outputs are presented in the form of comprehensible visualization
SW evaluates the following parameters: lipids, fats and pH.
Commercial opportunity: The expected commercial use of the result is the implementation of automatic data processing from the hyperspectral camera imaging system along with machine learning algorithms to quantify selected qualitative features such as texture, proteins, pH and lipids in the form of specialized software.
The resulting product can be used in fish processing, when it is necessary to determine the named parameters. It is also used during fish cultivation, when the effects of diets on the resulting quality of fish meat are determined.
Thus, an expensive and lengthy chemical analysis can be replaced by a more efficient procedure. To deploy the result, there is an established market where the existing technology (chemical analysis) will be replaced by a new one (analysis using a hyperspectral camera).
IP protection status: Copyrigth protection
Development status:

Phase 3

Corresponds with TRL 5 and TRL 6

Technology validation and implementing it in real environment. Testing the technology outside of the laboratory and its adjustment to external conditions.

  • TRL 5 represents a state where the results of the real environment tests are known and there is an idea of how to deal with the problems found (if any)
  • TRL 6 is a state where a fully functional prototype already exists and is capable of fulfilling all its functions
