The LUMiFlector® is a powerful measuring instrument for product parameter determination & monitoring. The innovative patented MRS-Technology® is the core of the instrument. It quantifies parameters of manifold products – no sample preparation, no chemicals.

The At-line instrument is designed for process monitoring or quality control on a production site or in a laboratory. With its small footprint it can be easily placed beside the production line or in a QA/QC laboratory. The LUMiFlector® Lab is consumable free: no chemicals, no additional waste, no additional costs.

Application fields include food, feed, pharmaceutical, biotechnology products and medical nutrition and beyond.

The optical interface is easily accessible and easy to clean, with just water and soap. The instrument comes with a self-explaining user-friendly interface only. A short training of the operator is sufficient, no need for complicated or time-consuming training. With just approximately 20 seconds per measurement, the LUMiFlector® saves your valuable time. Easy cleaning, handling, measurement, installation & operation guaranteed.
