Innovation in analytical technology creates three new solutions for testing food and agri products
New products offer faster testing of grain with NIR, a more modern way to check sprouting damage in grain and a fast and low cost solution for Dumas analysis
Three new analytical solutions based on thousands of man hours of groundbreaking technology development and industry collaboration have been added to the extensive FOSS product portfolio today.
Next generation Infratec test to improve grain handling
The Infratec™ NOVA is a 6th generation of the renowned Infratec NIR testing platform with new functionality to help grain receivers handle more grain samples in less time.
New levels of usability improve operations while dynamic sub-sampling makes the new instrument 20% faster than other NIR solutions when testing normal grain samples. At the same time, true networking and identical instruments reduce instrument management work required for consistent test results throughout grain receival networks. The new generation is reflected in a slight change of name from the well-known Infratec™ 1241 Grain Analyzer to the Infratec™ NOVA.
A modern and safe way of performing the standard falling number test
In addition to the Infratec Nova, grain receivers can take advantage of the Alphatec™FNo that provides a modern and safe way to perform the standard falling number test used to check sprouting damage in grain and enzyme-activity in flour before baking, malting etc.
Alphatec FNo offers a new alternative for testing the standard AACC Method AACC 56-81B ‘Determination of Falling Number’ with features including a specially designed cooling lid that minimises the rush of steam when loading samples and a touch screen interface for easy operation.
New innovative approach to Dumas nitrogen analysis
The Dumas method is increasingly popular for measuring nitrogen in a broad range of food and feed products. The Dumatec™ 8000 offers a number of innovative features that makes the method simpler and faster for busy laboratories.
Instantaneous analysis of all nitrogen resulting from the test procedure gives reliable Dumas measurements within three minutes. The innovative design avoids calibration standardization between batches of the same sample type. This gives a fast start up time of 30 minutes. Urgent new samples can be added to the autosampler while a batch is in process.
