Anton Paar’s new Packaged Beverage Analyzers, PBA 5001 Beer and PBA 5001 Softdrink, are single lab systems for every step of your beverage production process delivering customized, automated analysis in just 3 minutes – up to 9x faster than conventional methods. The simultaneous single-cycle measurement eliminates time-consuming calibration, minimizes cleaning, and saves you up to 2 hours a day. And the new interface optimizes operator support and data management.


Packaged Beverage Analyzers provide results much faster than conventional methods requiring sample preparation in the form of e.g. degassing and filtration, which are eliminated, along with errors due to poor sample handling, by the Analyzers’ automatic correction for the impact of dissolved CO2. In 3 mins, the PBAs tell you all you need to know about your product properties, and give you the time to make adjustments if necessary. Additionally they come with a modular, freely-configurable setup.

Free up lab capacity
  • Optimize valuable capacity in your lab
  • Determine your key parameters in only 3 minutes
  • Safeguard product quality 


Monitoring and releasing a product batch is a critical task which needs to be performed under time constraints, and requires resources in your laboratory.


The simultaneous analysis of all relevant quality parameters with a single Packaged Beverage Analyzer reduces analysis time to just 3 minutes – over 9x quicker than conventional methods.


Obtain maximum information super-fast, ensure product quality, and reduce lab personnel effort to a minimum.

Eliminate handling errors
  • Fill samples directly from the packaged beverage
  • Get rid of time-consuming sample preparation
  • Enhance lab productivity


Obtaining quality parameters using traditional methods often requires degassing and filtration. This involves the risk of sample spoilage and potential loss of volatile ingredients.


The direct, pressurized filling of a sample in a Packaged Beverage Analyzer eliminates entirely the need for sample preparation, use of glassware, and potential contamination of the product.


Elimination of operator interaction with the sample, ensures airtight reliability of analysis results.

Configure your supreme solution
  • Suit the measuring solution to your requirements
  • Select from a modular portfolio
  • Benefit from simultaneous multiparameter analysis


Quality assurance and the need to monitor specific quality parameters are often defined by the sample characteristics and require individual measurement solutions.


The modular setup of the Packaged Beverage Analyzer allows the configuration of your ideal measurement solution, including the parameters you need.


Analyze all required quality parameters from a single sample on a single system within a single measurement cycle and reduce the complexity in your laboratory to a minimum.

Meet your requirements
  • Select the parameters you are interested in
  • Adapt to your specific needs
  • Embrace top usability, for your peace of mind


Defining parameters of interest, display configurations, and output quantities can be a time-consuming task.


Anton Paar’s Packaged Beverage Analyzers come with predefined products, and identify the most suitable output quantities for your specific application.


Do away with time-consuming individual configuration of your parameters, while retaining the freedom to customize the system wherever needed.
