What is a Fish Analyzer?

Fish Analyzer is the world’s only hand held device that can measure both fish fat (lipid) percentage & fish freshness. Accurate results in less than 4 seconds, non-destructive and easy to carry hand held device.

Currently supports 20 fish specie with the option of making a custom calibration for the specific fish you want to measure.

It’s widely used in Japan’s fish markets, grocery stores, Universities and private laboratories. Now available for purchase worldwide.

How does the Fish Analyzer work?

Fish Analyzer measures electrical impedance of the fish to provide fish fat percentage & fish freshness in seconds. The device sends a small electrical current from one sensor and the other sensor receives it to measures the difference of the electrical current to provide fish fat percentage and fish freshness results.

To determine the fish freshness, the Fish Analyzer provides results from 5 grade levels, A, A’, B, C and D so that you can easily and instantly make on the spot decisions. 

What types of fish can the Fish Analyzer measure?

18 fish types supported!

The Fish Analyzer can measure 18 fish types (species). It also gives you the raw impedance measurements so you can make your own fish fat calibration.

Get Fish Freshness & Fat (lipid) percentage results in seconds & non-destructive

Depending on the size of the fish, take one or few measurements on the fish and get the fish fat percentage & fish freshness grading on the spot.

Fish Analyzer was designed to be used on live fish since it does no harm. Once you’re done taking measurements, reuse the fish!

So many great use cases such as: fish markets or grocery store quality control, monitor fish growth for research or to determine if the fish was previously been frozen.

Any limitations of the Fish Analyzer?

No device is perfect and here are some limitations of the Fish Analyzer you need to be aware of:

  • Can NOT measure frozen fish, it must be thawed
  • Minimum fish size: fillet (body) portion must be at least 0.4 inch (1cm) thick and at least 4 inches (10cm) long.
  • No Bluetooth wireless connection feature yet, it’s coming soon

Fish Analyzer FAQ

Please call us at: 1.800.295.6134 or email at: info@assurantinnovations.com
We do not provide pricing information on our websites.

Fish Analyzer works by emitting multi frequency (low & high) bands to to the fish to measure fish fat (lipid) content percentage and fish freshness.

The low frequency band detects electricity flow outside/around the fish cells. The high frequency band detects electricity flow into/through the fish cells. By using the combination of low and high frequency bands, the Fish Analyzer calculates the impedance (resistance) of the frequencies to provide the fish fat (lipid) content percentage and fish freshness grades.

The Fish Analyzer uses a multi band frequency method to achieve high accuracy of its results.

The Fish Analyzer was developed to measure freshness of fish and fish fat (lipid) content percentage instantly and accurately so you can make key decisions on the spot. This device has been used in fish research, fish aquaculture (fish growers) and fresh fish markets.

The Fish Analyzer can be used to:
– estimate the freshness and quality of fish on the spot to ensure supplier quality compliance.
– grade fish freshness based on corporate and industry guidelines
– determine if a fish has been previously frozen or irradiated
– estimate shelf life in fish markets and stores for resell
– check the age of fish during fishing and angling competitions

Yes it can. The Fish Analyzer is a non-destructive and non-invasive measuring device so it does no damage or harm to the fish. You can measure the fish many times as you want without affecting the quality of the fish. After measurement, you can sell or cook to eat safely.

The Fish Analyzer can measure live fish as long as you can hold the fish steady while the sensor is measuring the fish. The Fish Analyzer is a non-invasive and non-destructive device, so 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.

Unfortunately the Fish Analyzer can not measure fish fat (lipid) content or the fish freshness of frozen fish. The fish must be thawed and unfrozen.

For the Fish Analyzer to accurately measure fish freshness and fish fat (lipid) content percentage, the minimum fish body length excluding head and tail must be at least 4 inches (10 cm) and thickness of 0.4 inch (10 mm).

These are the minimum body length size and thickness required. If the fish does not meet the requirements, unfortunately, you will not get an accurate result.

Yes the Fish Analyzer can measure directly on and through the skin of the fish. It can of course measure directly on the flesh of the fish as well.

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.

The Fish Analyzer can hold and save up to 15,000 measured data results on the device. After the 15,000 measurements.

If the fish you want to measure is not on Fish Analyzer supported list, you can provide us with the fish species you want to measure and we can recommend a fish that is close to what you want to measure that will give a “good enough” result.

The Fish Analyzer has the ability to create custom calibration by providing “raw” impedance data of the fish. By using this result, you can easily create your own custom calibration and use it to meet your needs.
