  • Automated sample transfer

    Automated sample transfer reduces time spent on transferring data to and from management systems 

  • Scheduled diagnostics

    Running instrument diagnostics is essential to maintain high analytical performance of your NIR laboratory equipment, but it is also time consuming and limits access to the instrument.

    With scheduled diagnostics, you can ensure that your instrument is always ready during working hours, with full confidence in your results.

  • FossManager™

    FossManager™ software allows instruments to be connected in a network making it easier, quicker and more reliable to manage individual or multiple instruments from a desktop located anywhere. 
  • Ready-to-use calibrations or tools to develop your own

    FOSS global ANN calibrations are built on thousands of samples from a large variety of raw materials. Alternatively, develop your own calibrations with the easy to use FossCalibrator™ tool.
  • Versatile performance

    Advanced and versatile solution for testing a range of parameters on ground or liquid material with no or very limited sample preparation.

Take the guesswork out of sample analysis with rapid screening methods

As the food industry drives towards ever increasing product innovation, laboratories are faced with a higher throughput of more varied and unknown sample types. We spoke to Global Technical Manager for food chemistry, Timothy Lumb from ALS about the challenges facing the testing industry today and the possible solutions. Read article
