The NIR Seed Analyzer is specially designed for quick, accurate analysis of protein, moisture, and oil in small quantity samples. Light energy that enters the sample is scattered and absorbed within the sample. The NIR Seed Analyzer measures the spectra exiting the sample and directly displays the product’s constituent concentrations. Using a small 20 gram sample, it is the industry’s first and only patented NIR analyzer specifically designed for and proven to provide accurate analysis.

It is lightweight and completely portable, allowing analysis in the field, on the truck, or in the lab:

  • Seed Research Labs
  • Seed Breeders/Developers
  • Crop Specific Applications
  • Educational Applications

Simply pour the whole grain to be analyzed into the NIR Seed Analyzer sample holder, and place the cup into the analyzer. Once activated, it quickly measures the grain’s protein, moisture, and oil concentrates and displays them on the analyzer’s built-in LCD display or prints on the optional printer.

Now you can:

  • Know the full potential of the seeds you develop
  • Segregate your experimental seeds for
  • optimal plant population
  • Maximize your seeds’ constituents
  • Maximize your profit
