This latter measurement type will, in the medium term, be restricted to central laboratories owing to the cost and complexity of the equipment. Also omitted in this book are those instruments that rely on ionizing radiation (such as x-ray foreign body detection systems) or on a substantial computing capacity, as, for example, image acquisition and analysis systems. Real-time processing and automatic evaluation of visible light, x-ray, infrared or other images is another area that is expanding rapidly.

Pulsed NMR techniques are already widely used in quality control in the food industry for the determination of water and lipids content and of the solid/liquid ratio of fat. Bench-top instruments for these applications are readily available and are being further optimized for a wider range of food applications (including the investigation of water ‘binding’ to biopolymers) and more convenient operation. Furthermore, research into the NMR characteristics of foods and the development of novel magnet designs for NMR instruments are now underway.
