CONDELL PARK, Australia, June 22, 2010 — A new venture, Next Instruments Pty Ltd., has been announced by its directors. The business will offer analyzers that have been developed by universities, government research organizations and small high-tech companies.
Next Instruments is an offshoot of NIR Technology Systems, which specializes in near-infrared (NIR) devices, whereas the new business will provide a broader range of innovative analytical and process instruments for the food, agriculture and nutrition industries.
Five brand names — CropScan, MultiScan, SeedCount, OdourScan and NutriScan — will be available for marketing, distribution and support. The brands cover a range of NIR grain analyzers, NIR food and industrial analyzers, image analysis for seeds and grains, and electronic noses for environmental monitoring and product quality control.
The Next Instruments Web site will provide links to each technology's individual Web site.
