Anton Paar’s new Packaged Beverage Analyzers – PBA 5001 Beer, PBA 5001 Wine, and PBA 5001 Softdrink – are single lab systems for every step of your beverage production process. They deliver 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 two hours a day. And the new interface optimizes operator support and data management.


Since they eliminate the need for sample preparation (e.g., in the form of degassing and filtration), Packaged Beverage Analyzers provide results much faster than conventional methods. With their automatic correction for the impact of dissolved CO2, you don’t have to worry about errors due to poor sample handling. In three minutes, the PBAs tell you all you need to know about your product properties and give you the time to make adjustments if necessary. They also come with a modular, freely configurable setup.

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


Monitoring and releasing a product batch are critical tasks performed under time constraints. Both require 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
  • Eliminate 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 the need for sample preparation, use of glassware, and potential contamination of the product.


Eliminates operator interaction with the sample and ensures airtight reliability of analysis results.

Configure your 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 lets you configure your ideal measurement solution, including the parameters you need.


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

Meet your requirements
  • Select the parameters you’re interested in
  • Adapt it to your specific needs
  • Enjoy top usability


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.
