SPRINT vs. NIR

Greater Accuracy than NIR

NIR (near infrared) Technology utilizes light to analyze individual samples and makes assumptions about the interior composition of each by looking at the surface. In order to build a successful computational model for NIR, thousands of samples are required for each calibration. These calibrations are susceptible to seasonal modifications, inhomogeneous samples, changes in sample preparation, and other variables.  

The Sprint Protein Analyzer only requires 3 samples to accurately determine the protein content for a sample. The Sprint determines the protein content throughout the sample, not just on the surface, by mixing the sample with iTAG, a solution that binds directly to the protein in the sample. The iTAG solution is then measured by the system, providing direct, accurate results you can depend on.
