    Established standard worldwide

    Infratec™ is officially approved and established worldwide as the standard for determining protein, moisture, oil and starch. Its accurate and reliable results help you to deliver consistent quality.

    With Infratec’s patented stabilising technique, you get correct results whatever the weather. For instance, protein is predictable to within 0,1% and it can be measured in temperatures ranging from -4°C  to +40 °C.

Since the Infratec™ was introduced in 1987 it quickly became the benchmark for grain analysis trusted to facilitate billions of dollars worth of fair grain trade every year.

Take on the demands of modern grain testing with Infratec™ NOVA

Infratec™ NOVA ensures efficient grain testing with cutting edge technology. Based on a database comprising over 50,000 cross checked samples, Infratec™ NOVA offers outstanding accuracy and stability.
