Company Forges Ahead With First Ever Electron Microscope to Evaluate Structured Water
Tropical Beverage, Inc., a producer and distributor of value-added water-based products, announced that it has begun the process of building a state-of-the-art water testing facility. The focal point of the lab will be an electron microscope (valued at over $500,000) to be used to analyze the molecular structure of the altered waters that it plans to develop. Future plans are to acquire other highly sensitive machines such as NMR (nuclear magnetic resonance) machines to help establish a true control measure on products that are produced in this new field.
"We have been producing specialty waters for a couple of years, and one of the big problems that everyone faces is a method to evaluate the product timely from the production line. Currently, a lab test takes weeks to verify your production output, and by that time an inferior product can be released. Our plans are to not only build this lab to evaluate the quality controls of the current products, but to also build on the technology to make the best hydrating water in the world," said Chris Lotito, COO for Tropical.
Tropical Beverage manufactures and distributes a complete line of value-added beverages. Their extensive line includes pure spring waters, flavored waters, vapor distilled waters, ultra-pure purified waters, micro clustered waters and waters with additives (including oxygen, caffeine, electrolytes and other enhanced minerals and vitamins). They specialize in private labeled water and have products placed in stores around the world. In addition, Tropical Beverage continues to seek acquisitions of related companies that will enhance their product development and to build a network of subsidiaries across the nation.
