To maintain the growth cycle and the soil it is necessary to perform rapid and simple soil and fertil-izer analyses taken from the land. It calls for analysis of pH, nitrate, nitrite, ammonia, phosphorus, potassium and trace metals.
Traditional analysis based on manual wet chemistry is labour-intensive, tedious and time-consuming. However, for today's busy laboratory, automated testing systems that generate rapid and well-documented results are essential for quality environmental management.
Today our resources are under constant stress from industrial development and population growth, so it is vital to reliably monitor the quality of our environment for present and future generations.
The growth of plants in the environment depends upon the availability of mineral nutrients present in water. These naturally occurring nutrients in soil are taken up by the growing plant and are re-tained in the plant. The growth of plants in agriculture requires addition of further minerals in the form of fertilizers. The plants will yield grains or legumes and are used to feed man and livestock. Decomposed animals once again enrich the soil with organic nitrogen. Thus the cycle goes on and on.
FOSS systems incorporates several key features to provide economical operation and shorten payback periods; high sample throughput, use of minimal reagent volumes, unattended operation, and equipment reliability and safety.
Easy to use
For over 30 years we have been committed to improving and simplifying analytical procedures for routine use. Compact modules, quick-change chemistry cartridges, reagent kits, automation and smart software facilitate system operation.
Intelligent instrument design, good application literature, prepacked reagents, customer training and dedicated software ensure you get dependable results fast. Results that you can present to any authority with complete confidence in their validity.
Whether you are a company laboratory or an independent/contract laboratory, microbiological test-ing is an essential factor to assure and document the best possible safety and quality of consumer products. FOSS offers the perfect solutions to detect and count, at various points of the production, the presence/absence of pathogens and bacteriological level of contamination.
To ensure we stay at the forefront of this field, we work closely with both international and local au-thorities which control the way analyses are performed. Information gained from such co-operations is combined with our own research and development expertise to improve classical analysis techniques. This is how we make routine analysis simple.
FOSS is unique in offering a range of dedicated analytical solutions based on both indirect and reference methods. Solutions provide analysis and control throughout the production process, from raw material to finished product and from routine analysis to at-line and in-line process control.
