What's the minimum fish body size and thickness needed to accurately measure with Distell's Fish Fat Meter?
In order to use Distell's Fish Fat Meter, the fish needs to meet the minimum body size (not including head or tail) and thickness to accurately measure the fish fat content.

For fish body length (NOT including the head and the tail), it must be at least 1.5 inches (40 mm) long.

For fish thickness, it depends on the overall fish fat content:
- if the overall fish fat content is around 1 - 7%, then the fish thickness must be at least 0.28 - 0.31 in (7 - 8 mm).
- if the overall fish fat content is around 8 – 15%, then the fish thickness must be 0.6 - 0.67 in (15 - 17 mm).
- if the overall fish fat content is around 16 – 25%, then the fish thickness must be 0.79 - 1.0 in (20 - 25 mm).

These are the absolute minimum body size and thickness required. If the fish does not meet the requirements, unfortunately, you will not get an accurate result.
How accurate is Distell's Fish Fat Meter?
Distell's Fish Meter has an accuracy of about +/- 0.5% to 4% accuracy depending on the type of fish and total fat content. Please see the Accuracy Guide on the Distell Fish Fat Meter page.
What can Distell's Fish Fat Meters be used for?
Distell's Fish Fat Meter is used to measure fat content (lipid) in fish. It's been widely used in fish research with NOAA, USGS and many other worldwide Government and non-Government projects. It's also used in fishing aquaculture such as fish farming to measure fish fat to maintain healthy level of diet.
Can the fish being measured be used after measurement?
Yes it can. Distell's Fish Fat Meter is a non-destructive measurement device so it does no damage to the fish. You can measure the fish many times as needed without affecting the quality of the fish. After measurement, you can sell it or cook to eat safely.
Can the Fish Fat Meter measure on live fish?
Yes it can. As long as you can hold the fish steady long enough to make sure the sensors are in full contact for few seconds, you can absolutely use it to measure on live fish. The Fish Fat Meter is a non-invasive and non-destructive device, it's harmless to use on live fish.

It's a great way to monitor the fish health and growth as it responds to certain diets and environmental conditions.
Can Distell's Fish Fat Meter measure on frozen fish?
No it can not. Unfortunately, Distell's Fish Fat Meter can not measure the fish fat (lipid) content of frozen fish. The fish must be thawed and unfrozen to measure the fish fat (lipid) content.
Can Distell's Fish Fat Meter measure through the skin of the fish?
Yes. Distell's Fish Fat Meter can measure directly on the skin of the fish or directly on the flesh of the fish (e.g. bone side). There are different calibration settings available for each method.
Will measuring on, rather than above the sideline Lateral Line affect the results?
Yes. If you measure directly on the lateral line of the fish, the measurements will have more variance when compared with results from measuring above the lateral line.

The reason is that if you measure directly under the skin on the lateral line, there is a strip of flesh which tends to contain more fat. The amount of fat present in this area varies significantly due to seasonal changes.

If you measure above the lateral line, then you are measuring directly into the fish flesh / muscle area. This is much more repeatable (stable) and representative of the fat distribution in the flesh / muscle. We recommend this approach since it'll give more consistent results with low variance (changes less) over time as seasons change.
Can Distell's Fish Fat Meter measure through the skin of the fish?
Yes. Distell's Fish Fat Meter can measure directly on the skin of the fish or directly on the flesh of the fish (e.g. bone side). There are different calibration settings available for each method.
Any maintenance or upkeep needed for the Distell's Fish Fat Meter?
Like any scientific and industrial measuring devices, basic regular maintenance and up keep is recommended.

For instance, after each measurements, make sure to wipe clean the sensors and the device.

We also recommend at least a once a year re-calibration and maintenance by Distell. This is for additional fee to ensure the measurements are accurate, precise and working as expected. During the annual re-calibration and maintenance by Distell, we clean, inspect and update the firmware if available. The entire process take about 3 days from the time the meters are received.

Please call 1.800.295.6134 or email us at: info@assurantinnovations.com to get started.
How many measured results can Distell's Fish Fat Meter device hold and save on the device?
Distell's Fish Fat Meter can hold and save up to 1,000 measured data results on the device. After the 1,000, all the measured data results can be downloaded to your PC with the free cord download cable provided in the kit.

Once the measured data is downloaded to your PC, you can use the free Distell Data Management Software to manage the measured results.
The fish I want to measure is not on Distell's Fish Calibration list, what can I do?
If you want to measure a fish that is not on Distell's Fish Fat Meter calibration list, it's easy to create your own custom calibration. Please see the attached Custom Calibration instructions.

Meat Fat Meter FAQ

How do I purchase or buy the Meat Fat Meter?
Please call us at: 1.800.295.6134 or email at: info@assurantinnovations.com
We do not provide pricing information on our websites.
Can Distell's Meat Fat Meter be used on live mammals?
YES. All Distell meters are made to be used on live animals and fish. The is because it is NON-INVASIVE and harmless. It also means the measured samples can be used again with no harm.

Distell's Meat Fat Meter can also be used on small live mammals such as Chickens, Rabbit and other similar sized animals.
Can Distell's Meat Fat Meter be used to measure processed meats, even though is't not specifically calibrated for that product?
Yes, it can. The measurement and calibrations for a processed meat is as follows.

Every "processed" meats are different depending on their own individual recipes. Different amount of spices, fillings, added water, binding agents, and other food additives. Therefore, it's not possible to produce a universal calibration for each type of processed meat. What we do is to create a General Product Calibration by taking an average of different meat manufacturers samples and combining the data.

The accuracy achieved using Distell's Meat Fat Meter will vary between company's depending on the type and quantity of food additives combined with the Natural Meats.

Distell's Meat Fat Meter can carry out a specific product calibration for a specific recipe and thus monitor accurately the fat content variances encountered. However, when you consider that any one processor may have up to 300 different recipes, then it becomes impractical to carry out individual recipe calibrations, especially if we were to charge for each recipe required.

The best recommendation is to use a General Product Calibration such as General Sausage. The operator can then log all of the results achieved using the Meat Fat Meter on that particular product mix for about the first 1-2 weeks, then carry out a series of laboratory analysis on the samples. This will allow the creation of a graphed “Table-of-Error”. This is a quick way for company/operator to monitor the specification of the processed meat by allowing for this “error factor”.

It's necessary to compile a reasonable number of data samples, preferably reflecting the extremes normally encountered for the processed meat from the very low fat content to the very high fat content levels. This will ensure a good spread and allow a clear picture of trends.

The Meat Fat Meter can be used to accurately monitor the day-to-day quality and uniformity of the processed meat and allow rapid reaction where product variances are encountered. This procedure can be adopted for most of the companies processed products.

Distell's Meat Fat Meter does not have to contain a dedicated calibration for each and every processed meat. Simply build up a library of ” Error Tables” for each processed meat and apply the error factor accordingly.

Distell's Meat Fat Meter is a quality monitoring tool, giving the operator the ability to check the days’ production against the next day. If the results are the same, then the specification is correct. If there is a variance from one day to the next, then this will be clearly highlighted and allow for investigation.

If however you want Distell to make a truly accurate calibration for your specific processed meat, please let us know and we can provide such calibration with separate fees.
How accurate are Distell's Meat Fat Meter?
Distell's Meat Fat Meter are accurate to level of +/- 0.5% that have average fat content of 10%.
Is Distell's Meat Fat Meter accredited for use within the Meat Industry?
Yes. Distell's Meat Fat Meter has achieved AQIS (Australian Quality & Inspection Services) accreditation to “Chemical Lean” Standards. It's also been approved for use in US Meat Plants by the FDA.
What factors usually affect the measurement of Distell's Meat Fat Meter?
Several key factors goes into making sure Distell's Meat Fat Meters will provide accurate result:

1. For best and most consistent results and accuracy, product should be measured when within a temperature range of 0-10° C and NOT in the frozen state with NO ice crystals present in the sample.
2. Very course meat grinds (>8 mm) pieces of whole meat or meat that has not been blended can give different results. With such products, it's important to take the recommended number of readings from various parts of the samples to ensure the meter readings taken are fully representative of the sample.
3. Operator Error: Person taking the reading must make sure to the sensors are fully in contact with the meat being measured. To get a reliable and accurate result, the sample meat size should be 250 -300 grams and have a uniform grind. 
4. Operators should ensure that they take the measurements as recommended in measurement charts provided. This will ensure that the measurements taken are fully representative of the ALL of the sample.
What precautions should I take when comparing Distell's Meat Fat Meter results with Laboratory Analysis?
If the Meat Fat Meter results are going to be compared to an Laboratory Analysis, always make sure to follow the correct preparation procedures. Otherwise you may get a different result from the laboratory and this will create confusion. The preparation instructions are clearly described in the Meat Fat Meter Handbook but here are some key steps to follow.

- Switch ON the Meat Fat Meter and allow it to warm up to stabilize for 10 minutes.
- Select the correct calibration from the menu. You can confirm that it's the correct calibration by pressing the ‘RESET’ button and display on the LCD.

You're now ready to take measurements:
-  The Meat Fat Meter will request a series of EIGHT readings. Make sure the readings are taken at the recommended measuring spots as described in the handbook.
- Select 300 grams of meat and hand compress it into a “sausage-like” or “patty-like” shape. Make sure you've excluded any air cavities as per chart supplied.
- Place the sensor head fully in contact with the meat sample and make sure there are no air cavities.
- Press and hold the ‘READ’ button until the reading has stabilized, then release the button while the sensor is still firmly in contact with the meat sample.
- Take all eight readings from various spots of the sample (see chart supplied).
- After all eight readings are taken, the Meat Fat Meter will automatically display the Average Fat Content of the meat sample. The result should give accurate Meat Fat Content representing ALL of the 300 gram meat sample.

Having measured the sample with the Meat Fat Meter, you can now send the meat sample to the Laboratory for analysis. Depending on the laboratory, they may only take between 9 – 45 grams of meat. To get an accurate comparison, try to find a lab that accepts 300 grams. In addition, the laboratory must do triplicate analysis, taking a 2nd & 3rd samples from the different areas of the meat sample you have supplied them. This ensures that we have a check on the uniformity of the blended product.

The Meat Fat Meter can be compared with any recognized Lab Method. However, the Meat Fat Meter has been calibrated against Foss-Let Chemical Method, an AOAC recognized Laboratory based Chemical Extraction Method. This method will give the best comparative accuracy. There can be significant variances in Laboratory results depending on the method used and we recommend that the method of comparison is taken into account.

If you've followed carefully the instructions above, the Meat Fat Meter results should compare favorably with laboratory results. We're confident it should be within the performance range quoted in Operators Manual.
Which Distell Meat Fat Meter size should I choose, small or large?
The choice between the two Distell Meat Fat Meter sizes depends on the size of the meat you want to measure.

Both Distell's Meat Fat Meters have a minimum meat thickness of 1 inch to measure the meat fat content.

If the meat size is over 0.66 lbs, you should choose the standard model (MFM-1092). If it's less than 0.66 lbs, you should choose the smaller model (MFM-992).
What is the minimum meat size and thickness needed for Distell's Meat Fat Meter?
The minimum thickness the Distell's Meat Fat Meter needs is 1 inch to measure the fat content accurately. We also recommend to have at least 0.66 lbs of the meat as well.
Can Distell's Meat Fat Meter measure frozen meat?
No it can not. Distell's Meat Fat Meter needs the meat to be properly defrosted or thawed.
Can Distell's Meat Fat Meter measure ground beef?
Yes it can. Distell's Meat Fat Meters are used by many clients to measure fat content in ground beef.
Does temperature affect the performance or results of Distell's Meat Fat Meter?
Temperature should not have any affect, provided that there is no ice crystals in the meat being measured. If there are some ice crystals, Distell's Meat Fat Meter will tend to over-read the Fat Content level, meaning it will give a higher fat percentage. The reason for this is because the sensors inability to decipher between water content (ice crystals) vs. fat content as the device uses water content as baseline to measure fat content percentage.

In our years of experience, here is what we've found and recommend in terms of temperature:
- Fresh minced meats cooling to 28.4F (–2°C) normally do not contain ice crystals and can be measured as normal.
- Frozen meats will still contain ice crystals even as the sample temperature begins to rise above zero. Therefore it's important to allow recently defrosted samples to temper in an ambient temperature of between 41F - 50F (5-10°C). This will ensure that the ice crystals have fully dissolved.
- Minced meats stored at or above 50F (10°C) can suffer moisture loss over a period of time. This can create a variance from Distell's Meat Fat Meter when compared with Natural Meat Calibration.
- For consistent and accurate results, we recommend the meat being measured is at the same ambient temperature on a daily basis within a temperature range of 32F to 50F (0 – 10°C).
Do I need to calibrate separately for different temperature ranges? For instance, do I need to do measurements at temperature of 41F (5º C) and also at 104F (40º C)?
Distell's Meat Fat Meter operates by measuring the amount of water present in the sample and using calibrated algorithms. Then it will calculate the fat content percentage total in the meat sample. The main two variables in any naturally occurring organism (in this case fish or meat) is water and fat, one being the inverse of the other.

We recommend that all measurements for our standard calibrations are taken when the samples are at temperatures between 32F to 50F (0 -10º C) with no ice crystals present.

There will be a difference in the measurement values using Distell's Meat Fat Meter when measuring the same product at 104 (40º C). This means that Distell's Meat Fat Meter measurements using the standard calibrations become less accurate for product at this temperature due to changes in composition and density of the sample.

Meat products changes are due to several factors:
- The product at 104F (40º C) are more dynamic in nature with changes occurring in the sample composition due to moisture evaporation thus changing the relationship between water and fat content.
- At 104F (40 C), the meat will be much "looser" in nature (less dense). Also, at this temperature, the fat /oil in the sample will be more mobile and can be redistributed within the sample.
- The longer the time the meat is at this high temperature, more the moisture within the sample change, thus affecting the composition.

In summary, we recommend to create a custom calibration for product at 104F (40º C). This new calibration will be more accurate and will take account the compositional changes, product density and the fat redistribution within the sample. Providing the product ingredients are the same from batch to batch, the product remains on the same temperature and time profile from batch to batch.

Fish Freshness Meter (Torrymeter) FAQ

How do I purchase and buy the Torrymeter?
Please call us at: 1.800.295.6134 or email at: info@assurantinnovations.com
We do not provide pricing information on our websites.
What is the minimum fish body size and thickness needed for Distell's Fish Freshness Meter (Torrymeter) to measure accurately?
For Distell's Fish Freshness Meter (Torrymeter), the minimum fish body size (not including the head or tail) is 2 inches (50 mm).

For fish thickness, the body (torso) is 0.4 inch (10 mm) to measure the fish freshness accurately.
How accurate is Distell's Fish Freshness Meter (Torrymeter)?
Distell's Fish Freshness Meter (Torrymeter) has an accuracy of +/- 1 day on an un-irradiated, unfrozen or thawed fish. Many factors go into the accuracy such as fish species and how the fish is handled, but more or less +/- 1 day.

You can determine if the fish has been previously frozen right away.
What can Distell's Fish Freshness Meter (Torrymeter) be used for?
The Torrymeter was developed to measure freshness of fish, whole fish and fillet fish such as: Cod, Whiting, Herring, Mackerel, Tilapia and others. The Torrymeter can measure freshness of most fish species caught and processed around the world.

The Torrymeters are also used to:
- estimate the freshness and quality of fish
- grade fish according to European & International Standards (E-A-B)
- determine if a fish has been frozen or irradiated
- estimate shelf life in fish markets and stores
- check the age of fish during fishing and angling competitions
How does Distell's Fish Freshness Meter (Torrymeter) work?
The Torrymeter emits a low frequency 2 KHz signal from one sensor and calculates the difference by the receiving sensor. The results is processed and provides the Freshness Scale which is developed by Distell's experience and knowledge.
Can the fish being measured be used after testing?
Yes it can. The Torrymeter is non-destructive measurement device and tool so it does no damage to the fish. You can measure the fish many times as needed without affecting the quality of the fish. After measurement, you can sell it or cook to eat safely.
Can the Fish Freshness Meter (Torrymeter) measure on live fish?
Yes it can. The Torrymeter can be used to measure on live fish as long as you're able hold the fish steady for then sensors to take measurements. Since the Torrymeter is a non-invasive and non-destructive device, it's harmless to use on live fish.

It's a great way to monitor the fish health and growth as it responds to certain diets and environmental conditions.
Can Distell's Fish Freshness Meter (Torrymeter) measure frozen fish?
No it can not. The Fish Freshness Meter (Torrymeter) can not measure fish freshness while the fish is still frozen. The fish must to properly defrosted or thawed.
What precautions should I take when comparing Distell's Fish Freshness Meter (Torrymeter) results with laboratory analysis?
When you're comparing Distell's Fish Freshness Meter (Torrymeter) with a laboratory analysis, make sure to follow proper preparation procedure. Otherwise, you may get a different result from the laboratory and will cause confusion.

Preparation instructions are clearly described in Distell's Fish Freshness Meter (Torrymeter) Handbook, however, here are some guidelines:

- Place the sensor head fully in contact with the sample (fish) being tested carefully to exclude any air cavities.
- Press and hold the ‘READ’ button until the reading has been taken and is displayed on the LCD screen.
- Measure in the same location each time to be consistent.
- It's normal for Distell's Fish Freshness Meter (Torrymeter) to give different value results at different measurement locations on the same fish.

Different parts of the fish will spoil at different rates due to the bacteria levels, fat content, muscle structure and cell disruption within the fish.
Do we still need to conduct a normal laboratory test to confirm the measurement results?
You're free to conduct normal laboratory test anytime, however Distell's Fish Freshness Meter (Torrymeter) is designed to measure as many times needed to test the fish. Occasional laboratory tests can be conducted to confirm the results of Distell's Fish Freshness Meter (Torrymeter) readings. If you find any discrepancies, please contact us to have the meter calibrated.
What are some limitations of Distell's Fish Freshness Meter (Torrymeter)?
Distell's Fish Freshness Meter (Torrymeter) can not measure the following:
- Fish that is frozen, it must be thawed or defrosted
- Irradiated
- Cooked
- Stored in salt water
- Fish with thick-skin
- Fish skin has dried out
Does temperature affect the performance or results of Distll's Fish Freshness Meter (Torrymeter)?
Within the overall measurement limits of 0C to 10°C (32F to 50F) and provided that the fsh or fish fillet being measured with Distell's Fish Freshness Meter (Torrymeter) contains no ice crystals, temperature should have no significant effect.

Where the fish or fish fillets have been previously frozen or contain ice crystals, Distell's Fish Freshness Meter (Torrymeter) will display a low value result (normally between 1 and 4). This is because freezing the fish disrupts its cell structure which affects the capacitance and conductivity within the flesh, similarly to the cellular breakdown caused by bacteriological activity. This low value displayed by the Torrymeter infers that the change in conductivity is spoilage.

If the fish has been previously frozen, it may look fresh, high quality, not spoiled or smelly. However, using Distell's Fish Freshness Meter (Torrymter) will quickly check if the fish has been previously frozen. As a fish buyer, this is important as the shelf life of previously frozen fish is significantly lower than that of the fressh fish or fish that have been stored properly at or slightly above 0° C since being caught.

We've found that fish and fish fillets down to –2°C (28F) normally do not contain ice crystals and can be measured as normal. We've also found that fish or fish fillets stored at or above 10°C (50F) can suffer moisture loss and create a variance from the natural fish state.

For consistent accurate results, operator should make sure that fish or fish fillets are measured at the same ambient temperature on a daily basis within a temperature range of 0 – 10°C (32F to 50F).

Fish Analyzer FAQ

How do I purchase or buy the Fish Analyzer?
Please call us at: 1.800.295.6134 or email at: info@assurantinnovations.com
