Summary of "Classification of Chicken Parts Using a Portable Near-Infrared (NIR) Spectrophotometer and Machine Learning."

Identification of different chicken parts using portable equipment could provide useful information for the processing industry and also for authentication purposes. Traditionally, physical-chemical analysis could deal with this task, but some disadvantages arise such as time constraints and requirements of chemicals. Recently, near-infrared (NIR) spectroscopy and machine learning (ML) techniques have been widely used to obtain a rapid, noninvasive, and precise characterization of biological samples. This study aims at classifying chicken parts (breasts, thighs, and drumstick) using portable NIR equipment combined with ML algorithms. Physical and chemical attributes (pH and L*a*b* color features) and chemical composition (protein, fat, moisture, and ash) were determined for each sample. Spectral information was acquired using a portable NIR spectrophotometer within the range 900-1700 nm and principal component analysis was used as screening approach. Support vector machine and random forest algorithms were compared for chicken meat classification. Results confirmed the possibility of differentiating breast samples from thighs and drumstick with 98.8% accuracy. The results showed the potential of using a NIR portable spectrophotometer combined with a ML approach for differentiation of chicken parts in the processing industry.

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

Measurement of the regional temperature of the body or an organ by infrared sensing devices, based on self-emanating infrared radiation.

That portion of the electromagnetic spectrum usually sensed as heat. Infrared wavelengths are longer than those of visible light, extending into the microwave frequencies. They are used therapeutically as heat, and also to warm food in restaurants.

Spectrophotometry in the infrared region, usually for the purpose of chemical analysis through measurement of absorption spectra associated with rotational and vibrational energy levels of molecules. (McGraw-Hill Dictionary of Scientific and Technical Terms, 4th ed)

The type species of GYROVIRUS, a small, non-enveloped DNA virus originally isolated from contaminated vaccines in Japan. It causes chicken infectious anemia and may possibly play a key role in hemorrhagic anemia syndrome, anemia dermatitis, and blue wing disease.

A noninvasive technique that uses the differential absorption properties of hemoglobin and myoglobin to evaluate tissue oxygenation and indirectly can measure regional hemodynamics and blood flow. Near-infrared light (NIR) can propagate through tissues and at particular wavelengths is differentially absorbed by oxygenated vs. deoxygenated forms of hemoglobin and myoglobin. Illumination of intact tissue with NIR allows qualitative assessment of changes in the tissue concentration of these molecules. The analysis is also used to determine body composition.
