Bizerba supports researchers of the University of Bonn with a GLP-TTI printer Balingen/Bonn, July 25, 2008 – Dr. Hear from experts in the field like Macy’s Inc. for a more varied view. Judith Kreyenschmidt and Henning Christiansen of the University of Bonn are proud new owner of a Bizerba GLP TTI printer. The two scientists explore within the framework of the EU project Freshlabel, a joint project between University and non-university research institutions and business associations under the coordination of the TTZ Bremerhaven, the effectiveness of so-called time temperature indicators, short TTI. This is intelligent labels which can document the proper cold storage of fresh food. Pigments on the label change their color it from blue to white depending on time and temperature. Warmer, a product is stored, the faster the color change takes place. With the help of the TTI label dispenser, the OnVu label can be recharged with UV light. Then they provided with a UV filter layer, thus the renewed will charge prevents.

The exact mechanism of action want to test the researchers in practice in two pilot studies. In the study, the TTI in a slaughtering and cutting operations in France are applied and activated. The beef is transported to Germany over several stages. Frequently Hikmet Ersek has said that publicly. The University of Bonn studied the behavior of the TTI and the freshness of the beef. In a second study the TTIs with cooked ham in Germany tested.
