Features and Benefits
The FoodCheck is designed for the environment of Meat and Dairy production. With the sealed stainless steel housing it can be used as laboratory instrument or directly in the production. 
The rotating sample dish gives you always reliable results from a representative sample. Using regular Petri- dishes allows to work cost effective without any glass in the production.
Our long experience in building Food Analyzer combined with great experience in calibration development gives you an instrument with high accuracy and trustable results.
The high precision of the linear monochromator allows Bruins Instruments to use the same calibration on all our Food Analyzer. Our patented monochromator system gives reliable measurements over decades.
The intuitive software and a large Touchscreen makes the Analyzer easy to use. The operator just has to select the product and to fill the sample in the sample dish.
