The DairySpec FT is designed for a wide range of dairy laboratories and processing facilities that need a highly accurate instrument for the analysis of dairy components, including Fat, Protein and Lactose. Engineered in accordance with Bentley Instruments’ rigorous design principles and quality management systems, the DairySpec FT provides precise and accurate measurements, as well as exceptional reliability.

Technology summary
Bentley Instruments’ DairySpec FT component analyzer uses an industrial Fourier Transform Spectrometer (or FTIR) that captures the complete infrared absorption spectrum of the milk sample for component analysis. Collecting the complete spectrum allows the calibration to be based on all spectral characteristics of each particular component. The infrared spectrum is permanently stored so that at any time in the future other calibrations may be retroactively applied to your data.
