Sagitto's miniature near-infrared spectrometer is very small, light weight, and battery powered. Ideal for rapid pre-harvest and at-harvest analyses of hop cones for alpha acids, beta acids, Hop Storage Index (HSI), hop oil volume, moisture, and Dry Matter.
Some of the world's largest hop producers use Sagitto's system in their laboratories, to measure hops and hop extracts with extremely high levels of accuracy and precision. They use our expertise in building machine learning models for benchtop FT-NIR instruments from companies such as PerkinElmer. We provide one integrated system that contains all their calibration models, whether for bench-top or hand-held instruments.
