The company's family of Near-InfraRed (NIR) analyzers is designed for the specific needs of the nutraceutical and functional food industries. The PhytoScan-B system can monitor raw plant and seed species for both the presence and concentration of active phytochemicals that may be beneficial to human nutrition and well being. The companion PhytoScan-L system can measure the same properties in fluid extracts. The systems are powered by the firm's NIR scanners, which accumulate over a thousand wavelengths per scan. This property allows the systems to provide ancillary information such as moisture, fat and protein components at the same time that phytochemicals are being monitored.
Both of the analyzers include Iso-Pharm software, a combination instrument driver and statistical analysis module. The program includes system suitability testing on demand with report-out capability for meeting cGMP validation requirements.
