Study demonstrates the potential of using NIRONE Sensors for measuring the milk fat and protein content

Near-infrared (NIR) spectroscopy has shown promise as an on-farm tool for fat and protein content determination of raw milk. However, milk analysis in the field requires affordable and small NIR sensors. The study by Uusitalo et al. “Comparison of milk analysis performance between NIR laboratory analyzer and miniaturized NIR MEMS sensors”...
