  • How easy it is

    1. Place prepared sample in a sample holder
    2. Select product
    3. Press Start
    4. Results in 45 seconds
  • Faster alternative to traditional methods

    A test with the DairyScan™ takes just 45 seconds. Busy producers can thus avoid time consuming traditional testing methods which can take up to 20 hours for a moisture analysis and get more information to help them spot out-of-spec production before it impacts yield and product quality.
  • Easy start-up, with readymade global ANN calibrations

    DairyScan™ is equipped with an artificial neural network (ANN) calibration making it a “plug & play” solution.

    It is ready to run immediately so there is no need to gather lots of samples as required for a typical PLS calibration. The ANN calibration covers nearly all types of cheese.
