KPM Analytics Introduces Three Models to its Industry-Leading SpectraStar NIR Analyzer Series

WESTBOROUGH, MA (June 15,2021) — KPM Analytics announced today three new instrument configurations for its Unity Scientific™ SpectraStar™ product line. Utilizing near-infrared reflectance (NIR) technology, SpectraStar analyzers deliver fast, reliable, and cost-effective compositional analysis for a wide range of sample types, mainly in the food, ingredients, feed, forage, and agriculture industries. The market needs for NIR analysis continue to evolve, and these three new solutions provide application-specific capability with an outstanding return on investment. SpectraStar XT analyzers are equipped for both laboratory use and at-line process control.

‍SpectraStar XT-3

Basic analyzer for reliable analysis of the three most common constituents measured – moisture, oil/fat, and protein. The XT-3 is a high-value solution for a wide range of sample types and applications and can be configured with a number of Unity calibrations for ready-to-use operation.
