Food Solutions

Optimized analysis of food & ingredients

Food products are produced in seemingly unlimited variations, but the challenge is the same for all producers, namely to optimize production and stay competitive. The flexible Quant from Q-Interline combining best available technology and sampling solutions secure analytical results of high quality.


WWW Food Value


The Quant will analyze your products in 30 seconds for important parameters, enabling you to optimize your production and yield more profit.

Through many years of work in the industry, we have obtained a broad knowledge about processes and challenges, making Q-Interline an acknowledged partner for many industry leading players.

Optimized sampling solutions

Our Quant solutions are based on Theory of Sampling principles (TOS), comprising correct sampling. We understand that not all products are the same and hence can not be analyzed on one standard analytical solution. Browse through our food solutions and learn more and contact your local Q-Interline representative to discuss your specific product.

Excellent performance and low cost of ownership

The Quant Analyzer will provide analytical results of very high reliability. The exceptional spectral performance combined with proper sampling will allow analysis of standard parameters, but also enables analysis of special components with minor spectral signatures.

The Quant Analyzer has no scheduled maintenance and the light source has an expected lifetime of 10 years. This means that you can save on expensive maintenance contracts which normally have to be signed for this type of analytical equipment.

All Quant analyzer running InfraQuant 3.0 and newer are AnalyticTrust enabled. With AnalyticTrust we can serve you better, faster, cheaper and you can obtain trusted results in a very efficient way, optimizing the value of the Analyzer.
