The SDmatic’s measuring method is based on an amperometric measurement (Medcalf and Gilles): it measures iodine absorption by means of a diluted flour suspension. The iodine is adsorbed and then absorbed by the starch all the more so as the latter is damaged.
Standards – protocols:
AACC, ICC, AFNOR standardization is pending for the SDmatic
It correlates very well with the AACC 76-31 and Farrand methods
Advantages of the SDmatic include:
Rapid analysis in under 10 minutes
Simple : automated analysis not requiring any special training and relatively few reagents
Calibration and display possible in different units : AACC %, Farrand %, UCD
