    Unmatched optical performance

    The NIRS™ DS2500 F uses highly accurate optical NIR technology to give best-in-class performance across the full wavelength range of 850 to 2500 nm. Regardless of whether you are testing Moisture, Fat and Protein or more demanding parameters such as Amino acids, Ash of fibres, the NIRS™ DS2500 F delivers precision results in under a minute. For measuring colour, (eg. petfood) the instrument is also available in an extended version that includes a broader wavelength of 400 to 2500 nm.
