MATS and MAPS food processing systems are available exclusively through 915 Labs. The company sells and leases both a pilot-scale system and commercial production systems and packaging solutions. 

All MATS systems perform both sterilization (MATS) and pasteurization (MAPS). In 2017, 915 Labs will offer a MAPS-only system.


The MATS-B is a pilot-scale system designed for product development labs. Chefs, culinary experts and food manufacturers are working with MATS-B systems in commercial test kitchens throughout the U.S. and around the world creating new recipes and preparing to launch natural food brands with fewer additives and salt. Recipes and processes developed on the MATS-B will translate directly to commercial production MATS systems.

The pilot-scale MATS-B allows food companies to:

  • develop recipes
  • produce samples for internal and market trials
  • validate food safety
  • test packaging materials and designs.
Microwave food processing can revolutionize the quality of packaged food. The technology gives us the ability to deliver food that is much closer to fresh.
