HPTLC analysis

High-Precision NIR Instruments Dedicated to Grain Analysis

The Bruins Instruments AgriCheck Series of near-infrared spectroscopy (NIR) analyzers are cost-effective, high-performance instruments with specific calibration libraries dedicated to analyzing whole grains, from wheat and corn to soybeans, sorghum, rice, and others. The standard transmission mode accurately analyzes incoming whole grains to help processors fully understand the quality and suitability for use, and to predict performance in recipes. An optional reflectance mode analyzes ground materials and byproducts for composition and quality.

The AgriCheck Series accurately measures major components like moisture, protein, and starch, as well as oil, fiber, gluten, zeleny, amylose, FFA, and other parameters depending on product type. The AgriCheck provides rapid, accurate, and reliable measurements of quality at an attractive price point for growers, millers, and processors.


High precision, linear monochromator provides reliable measurements

Intuitive software and a large touchscreen makes the analyzer easy to use

Optional Test Weight module determines the specific weight of the grain


High accuracy and trusted results allow for quick adoption of the instrument

Intuitive and easy to use means less time training staff to use the analyzer
