FTIR, NIR or FT-NIR - What's the difference? How to choose the right technology for your production

FOSS experts explain the difference between Infrared analysis options for dairy producers.

“It is about taking those elements that routine control can do for you, but keeping the elements that you need a cheese maker’s brain for.”

Traditional cheese makers Belton Cheese explain how modern FOSS technology adds value to traditional cheese making processes.

    The benefits of NIR Transmittance technology

    The NIT-principle, where light is transmitted through the sample, is a major reason for FoodScan’s success. NIT secures a higher level of accuracy, compared to methods where the result is based on light reflected from the surface of the sample. The data generated by FoodScan™ are subjected to a mathematical function, a calibration model, in order to calculate the predicted value.

    ANN Calibrations

    Ready-to-use ANN calibrations saves both the time and cost involved when developing a new calibration.

    Less maintenance works of calibrations as one calibration model covers many different product types.
