Food and Feed analysis

Food and feed products are analyzed for several reasons, such as monitoring product quality, being able to guarantee food / feed safety and compliancy with official regulations.


Food producers must ensure that they produce safe and high-quality products. For this they rely on analysis with accurate analyzers. We offer a comprehensive range of analytical methods for food & feed analysis. Reliable routine analysis according to AACC, AOAC, ASBC, EBC, MEBAK, ICC, EPA, ISO, Coresta, GB, LFGB, NYT etc.


Before installation at a customer’s site, the analyzers are thoroughly tested and set according to the customer’s standards to obtain the most optimal and accurate analysis results. Additionally, new application development for specific samples is fully supported by Skalar’s application laboratory in close cooperation with the customer.


An important factor for laboratories is time. Automation of the analyses with a Skalar analyzer reduces the analysis times and increases the sample throughput. The response times to the detection of changes are more immediate, which ensures a better control of the production process and waste reduction.


A key aspect for purchasers. The low operational costs simplify the choice to automate applications, bearing in mind an increase in speed and reliability.

PRIMACS™ SNC-100 - ceramic crucibles


  • Analysis according the Dumas technique
  • Rapid cycle time of 5 minutes
  • Sample mass up to 3.0 g
  • 100 position random access autosampler
  • Re-usable quartz crucibles, sample ashes remain in the crucible after each analysis which avoids sample ash build-up in the combustion zone and therefore reduces maintenance
  • Unique vertical sample introduction system
  • Complicated samples as for example meat can be heated in various stages by the flex ramping system
  • Integrated methods for reliable TN/Protein analysis according to AACC, AOAC, ASBC, EBC, MEBAK, ICC, ISO, GB, LFGB, NYT etc.


  • Cereals
  • Dairy products
  • Starch
  • Grain products
  • Meat
  • Animal feed
  • Rice
  • Malt & Wort
