4 Key Highlights From Analytica By An NIR Analyzer Specialist

Posted by John Bogart on Wed, Apr 9, 2014


I’ve just returned from an incredible experience meeting hundreds of scientists and industrial professionals at Analytica, the International Trade Fair for Laboratory Technology, Analysis and Biotechnology in Munich, Germany. It’s never simple to compete against 1,100 exhibitors. However, it’s a little easier when you are in the country of the Hoffbrauhaus… I always underestimate how much scientists love their beer!

Do You Measure Moisture Or Composition At Your Lab? Jaw Dropping Lessons Learned At Pittcon

Posted by Elizabeth Becker on Mon, Mar 17, 2014

As the voice of Kett on Twitter, LinkedIn and Facebook, I am familiar with our products, but have had little opportunity to interact with our customers. So, John Bogart, Kett’s CEO, invited me to find out more at my first tradeshow. I had no idea what to expect as I boarded the plane heading from Denver to Chicago to join John Bogart, our Japanese colleagues and several thousand analytical chemists at Pittcon14.

5 Reasons Why The KJT270 Is A Perfect Solution For Instant Composition Analysis

Posted by John Bogart on Thu, Jul 25, 2013

This month, we’ve been sharing the benefits of two of our most popular instruments in the NIR spectrometer family, the KJT130 and KJT230 moisture meters. While moisture testing is one of the top ways to ensure product quality across the board, this week we’ll be discussing the cousin of the moisture analyzers, the KJT270 NIR Composition Analyzer. The KJT270 is available as a larger fiber optic KJT270F and smaller desktop KJT270. Listed below are five key reasons customers love these instruments.

KJT130 Moisture Meter: 10 Benefits of Taking the Lab to the Sample

Posted by John Bogart on Wed, Jul 10, 2013

R&D, quality control and quality analysis department laboratories are rife with a variety of spectrometers. These test instruments improve the bottom line of manufacturing companies, ensuring products meet standard market parameters with minimal waste. While a variety of instruments utilize infrared spectroscopy, near- infrared (NIR) spectroscopy is specifically useful in analyzing bulk materials, often with no sample preparation.

NIR test equipment has evolved over the past decade to be used in a wide variety of analysis applications. Currently, these spectrometers are employed across nearly all manufacturing lines, measuring everything from pharmaceuticals to food and beverages, and spanning the chemical, beauty, packaging, coating, medical supply and agricultural industries. Just one spectrometer can be used to confirm the state and quality of bulk materials or raw ingredients, assess intermediate products in a processing line and confirm that final goods are ready to meet consumers’ expectations.

Traditionally, samples are brought to the lab, where these high-tech machines stand ready. However, walking a sample from the field, stockroom or factory line is time-consuming, prohibited to a limited size and shape of the sample, and introduces unwanted variables. In response to these limitations, we’ve designed portable spectrometers, like the KJT130 moisture meter, to meet the real needs of QA, QC and R&D specialists.

Here’s why we believe operations or development teams would be hard pressed to find a better investment.
