EDEN PRARIE, MINNESOTA, U.S. — FOSS’ Infratec NOVA grain analyzer has been approved for analysis of moisture in grain by the National Metrological Institute in Germany (known as PTB) and the Laboratoire national de métrologie et d'essais (LNE) in France, FOSS said on Dec. 8.
Official approvals are required in a range of countries for official measurement of grain quality, for example, for payment to farmers for their grain deliveries.

The Infratec NOVA is scheduled to achieve the same level of approval as the previous generation Infratec 1241 Grain Analyzer which is the most widely approved grain analyzer available. Further approvals for the Infratec NOVA are under way in all countries where the Infratec 1241 is currently approved such as France, the U.S. and Australia. These are expected in the near future, FOSS said.
