  • All the parameters you need for your labelling in one analysis

    With FoodScan™ 2 you get the information you need for labels on consumer packs.
    This gives you the possibility to reduce your costs for use of external labs and enables the QC lab to do more with the same resources.
    Besides Fat, Moisture, Protein, Collagen and Salt (Cl-based) the FoodScan™ 2 delivers results about the content of Energy, Carbohydrates, Saturated Fat, Sodium and Ash. 
  • Measure colour and composition at the same time

    The colour module is one of the new features available with FoodScan™ 2:

    Colour is measured with the CIE L* a* b standard
    The colour measurement is done at the same time as the composition parameters are measured
  • Batch Standardisation

    The FoodScan™ 2 includes a new Batch Standardisation function to ease your adjustment of fat content in a batch. 
  • Accurate results – even with less homogenous samples

    With FoodScan™ you get accurate results every time because:

    With 3 sub-scans an even larger share of the sample is measured, which make you less dependent on the homogenization step
    FoodScan™ 2 is a major step forward in NIR transmission technology
  • Time to result reduced by up to 50%

    The demand for greater efficiency grows as meat plants increase throughput and introduce new end-products to stay competitive and meet changing consumer preferences. This adds to the work-load in the QC laboratory.


    Faster analysis time enables faster processing of each batch and increased production efficiency.

  • ANN Software ANN Software

    Ready-to-use calibrations – covering raw material as well as finished products

    The intelligence and robustness of the ANN calibrations ensure you’re well equipped to deal with it all.
    If you need to control parameters or products that are not covered by the ANN calibrations, we can support you with the tools and competences required to make customised models.
  • Maintain TOP PERFORMANCE with digital services

    Effective management of all your FoodScans™, whether you have one or more than 20 different instrument configurations to back-up, monitor and update.

    Get the benefits of fast service resolutions, when FOSS service technicians are able to access your instrument diagnostics remotely. 

    Secure a high up-time with proactive monitoring by FOSS experts.
    Be certain that you have back-ups of your data and documentation for audits. 
    Increase efficiency by adjusting your calibrations when there is a statistical reason.
