This instrument features the traditional Compression Mode and Tension Mode. The CT3 Texture Analyzer Test food and non- food products such as: (biscuits, bread, butter, sauces, surimi, adhesives, foams, personal care, sponges etc.) with compression fixtures and packaging with tension fixtures. Manufacturers can test their products and the packaging as well. The CT3 is ideal for large sample placement.
