NeoSpectra by Si-Ware, the creator of NeoSpectra material analysis solutions built on single-chip FT-NIR spectrometers, partnered with NutriControl Analytical Solutions, a laboratory network based in the Netherlands serving the animal feed, dairy and food sectors. The partnership leverages NutriControl’s industry calibration experience to provide users of NeoSpectra by Si-Ware’s portable NeoSpectra Scanner with quick, accurate materials sampling capabilities for a broad range of applications, including animal feed, food quality and pet food, empowering users with improved quality assurance and on-demand decision-making.
This partnership expands the applications available to customers in NeoSpectra by Si-Ware’s NeoSpectra Lab Store, a secure place to discover and subscribe to calibration models that are developed by NIR experts such as laboratories, researchers, companies and universities. From the NeoSpectra Lab Store, NeoSpectra Scanner users will now be able to subscribe to the calibration lines needed to perform accurate analysis across industry applications such as agriculture, food, life sciences and others.
“We’re excited to partner with NutriControl on this endeavor and pair their NIR calibration expertise with our user-friendly portable technology,” said Ralph Hewitt, vice president of global sales at NeoSpectra by Si-Ware. “Our team is dedicated to developing industry partnerships that strengthen our product accuracy, provide customers with the most options in the calibration lines they use, and introduce tangible benefits to our end users. Reliable calibration is essential to achieving fast and accurate materials analysis, and we feel even more confident in the accuracy of the results from our NeoSpectra Scanner by working with proven calibration partners like NutriControl.”
NutriControl develops NIR calibration lines and NIR cloud services that can be leveraged to analyze feed, grains, dairy products, silages, pet food and many other raw materials. The company’s calibration lines are based on a significant amount of classical wet chemical tests, benefiting NeoSpectra by Si-Ware’s global customer base by providing the necessary amount of variation for accurate use across multiple geographies.
“Our customers have long understood the need for accurate materials analysis, and now more than ever, they are searching for portable solutions to conduct real-time sampling and accurate measurements,” said Jörgen van den Ende, managing director at NutriControl. “Through our collaboration with NeoSpectra by Si-Ware, we now have the opportunity to implement our calibration lines on a portable system that will bring value to all global users.”
