The next step in NIR analysis of Dairy powder

The NIRS™ DS 2500 dairy analyser helps you to improve yield and reduce energy usage in dairy powder production. Designed for use in the laboratory or at the production line, the NIRS™ DS2500 is a practical quality control tool ideal for routine production control and monitoring of final product quality.


It’s easy to get started using the NIRS™ DS2500. Instruments are pre-calibrated with global artificial neural network (ANN) calibrations based on a comprehensive FOSS database built-up over decades of collaboration with the dairy industry. Calibration data from earlier solutions can be transferred to the new platform using straightforward migration paths without any loss of performance

As well as quantifying protein, fat and other parameters, near infrared (NIR) analysis can act as a security camera in the production process by giving a warning about products that do not match up to formulations.

The NIRS™ DS2500 has been created for high performance in even the harshest production conditions. Robust, easy-to-use and IP65 certified, it withstands humidity and temperature fluctuations. This high level of solidity makes the NIRS™ DS2500 suitable for at-line use by anyone in any production plant.


New NIR reveals value that other analysers cannot see

The advanced near infrared technology behind the NIRS™ DS2500 allows you to measure ash and other key parameters such as moisture protein and colour across a broad wavelength range of 400 to 2500nm.

Purpose built

Robust, easy-to-use and IP65 certified the NIRS™ DS2500 allows everyone to contribute to quality. Measurements take less than a minute and the instrument is rock solid even when subjected to conditions of damp, dust, vibrations or temperature fluctuations.

Reliable measurements by anyone

Anyone can do reliable tests with the NIRS™ DS2500 with low risk of operator error. Users just place some sample in the sample cup, push the button and wait a minute for results to appear on screen via the intuitive ISIscan Nova software.

Re use existing calibration data

The NIRS™ DS2500 is 100% backwards compatible to InfraXact™, NIRSsystem II and FOSS XDS™ instruments. The compatibility makes it easy to leverage calibration data using straightforward migration paths without any loss of performance.


Multi-parameter such as Fat, Protein, Moisture, Ash, Colour, Lactose, Acidity and more
