With minimal sample preparation and ready-to-use vials, the FoodLab® can be used anywhere in the production area or in the laboratory. Following the step-by-step instructions on the easy to read LCD screen, both models will automatically calculate and display the result in the correct unit of measure. Results can be printed for filing or sharing with colleagues either by the built-in printer featured in the FOODLab model, or when using the FOODLab Junior by an external printer wireless connected to the unit. Thanks to the Multi-Tasking Mode, the FOODLab® model can run several analyses simultaneously on the same sample or run the same test on 16 different samples.
