bioClass® the next level in meat and poultry inspection systems from Automate and Control LTD. Complimentary to current quality inspection systems such as metal detectors and x-rays the bioClass is capable of detecting non-conformances previously only detectable with the human eye. With the modern high speed poultry facilities human inspection of 100% of your product is nearly impossible. With our system we can detect small fragments of bone, fat, skin, blood spots and not so visible wooden breast. Patent Pending.
Chicken breast fillets without woody breast myopathy are shown here with more purple in the colouring when tested on our system.
The more yellow in the image represents the severity level of woody breast myopathy in the chicken breast fillets. With our automatic grading system these fillets will have a severity value and can be reallocated to different types of final product such as nuggets, mince of strips.
Our system can also detect fat, bone, skin and blood spots plus other foreign materials that can be found in your process such as packaging materials accidentally dropped into the process stream. Our system can also differentiate the difference between same colour materials such as fat and skin as we are detecting the chemical signature not the colour of the material we are inspecting.
bioClass® is a 4-lane high speed system capable of inspecting both sides of the chicken breast, and automatically rejecting each non-conformance for rework. It is up to 250% faster than manual inspection systems . Its unique technology can help you ensure you deliver only the highest quality poultry to your customers.
Whilst X-ray and metal detectors ensure consumer safety, the bioClass is a complementary quality inspection technology that guarantees consistent product quality. With the modern age of social media, one bad consumer experience of your products can have a rapid negative effect on your company’s brand.

Myopathies are muscular disorders in poultry, characterized by the presence of altered muscle fibers. With woody breast myopathy (WBM), affected muscles are replaced with fibrous connective tissue, which causes firmness in the breast meat. Currently, myopathies are visualized by macroscopy, which requires dissection of the breast fillets. However, this method is subjective and time consuming.
