Siui Apogee for Ultrasound Meat Grading

Last week, we put the Apogee range of scanners through their paces on a farm in Warwickshire. We tested the Apogee 2300 and Apogee 1000 Lite against the Sonoscape S6 – the scanner we’ve customised and supplied for lamb and beef meat grading work for the past seven years – which has recently been discontinued by the manufacturer.

The Apogee 1000 Lite, as the name suggests, is a slimmed down version of the Apogee 2300. As such, it wasn’t expected to perform as well, but we were interested to observe the differences. It was felt that that the Apogee 1000 Lite could certainly do the job for those on a budget, but larger organisations who need to provide the highest quality imaging and measurement accuracy as possible would almost certainly want to go for the Apogee 2300.

The Apogee 2300 performed excellently, which supported what we’d already observed from our testing in Switzerland. Here are a few example photos and scan images from our day on the farm:

 

 

These tests were performed with the small-footed linear probe. For optimal results, we suggest the linear probe with the larger footprint. Contact us for more information and to discuss the needs of your project.
