The NIR spectra of mylab provide information on the nutrient concentration of solids and liquids.

Dr. Peter Miethe, Managing Director of the Thuringian Research Center fzmb GmbH and Chairman of the Board of Directors of the Thuringia e.V. research and technology network, lives according to the motto "from idea to market". The success of this approach, he explains, is shown by the trend-setting development of mylab.

One and the same device can be used universally in the analysis of meat, sausage, cheese and dairy products. It is sufficient to crush a sample roughly. 21 analytes, including: nutritional value, dry matter, pH, water salt, protein, sugar, carbohydrates and fat are determined in parallel and in seconds. They are displayed on the large touch display.

The focus of the fzmb is on innovative portable diagnostics and analysis technology with the simplest handling. State-of-the-art microsystem technology components enable immediate readiness for use: switch on - warm up - measure samples. Everything works without chemistry and completely contactless. The one-click software, factory calibration and automatic results storage with integrated sample database make life easier and the user a specialist. Supplier complaints can be triggered immediately after receipt. The seamless chemometric network right through to the outgoing goods optimizes the customer's value chain.

Large producers have long relied on NIR standards. With the unbeatable performance and the quality-equivalent insourcing of analytics, micro-enterprises will finally be able to digitize their production. With around € 20,000, this is a rewarding step towards quality-conscious customers. The device is calibrated to the individual parameters at the measuring location and can be maintained remotely.
