Probability of detection (POD) seems like a relatively simple number which vendors use to reassure potential customers of a machine’s capabilities for contaminant detection. However, there is more to the numeric value of POD than just taking it for face value. This white paper explains how POD is calculated and why 100% POD is unachievable and it also looks at factors that affect sensitivity of contamination detection while lastly discussing how the latest innovations in x-ray inspection technology are designed to enhance detection performance, while explaining how food processors can ensure POD is consistent throughout the lifetime of their x-ray system.

Looking ahead to the approaching new decade, shifting consumer demands will drive changes in packaging and, along with those changes, the way that manufacturers inspect packaged goods for quality and safety. According to Simon King, Head of Global Sales, Service and Marketing for Eagle Product Inspection, new packaging and accompanying x-ray inspection capabilities will be designed based on what consumers seek and expect.
Just as meat and poultry products have changed in response to shifting consumer tastes and demands, so, too, have inspection technologies used to ensure the safety, consistency and quality of those items. While x-ray machines are regularly used to inspect traditional raw and bulk product in processing facilities, advanced inspection systems are installed to find and remove physical contaminants, conduct quality and integrity checks and enable better traceability in an array of packaged products, including trays, chubs, and boxes, among other forms and provide opportunities for process optimization.
