Dependable Oil and Moisture Analysis

Bruker presents the newest member of the mq-one series: the minispec mq-one Seed Analyzer XL or in short the mq-one XL. Oil and moisture in seeds are analyzed according to international standard methods. Beside seeds press cake and residues after extraction can be analyzed too.

Moreover the mq-one XL offers all the well-known advantages of the mq-one series:

  • Easy sample preparation, no grinding
  • High accuracy and reproducibility, about 2 to 3 fold better than wet chemistry or competing technologies
  • No dependency on colour, surface, penetration depth
  • The whole sample is analyzed, not only the surface
  • Very high short and long term stability
  • Multilingual miniPlus software, 21 CFR part 11 compliant
  • Package containing tubes and IRMM rape seed reference samples also suitable for validation
  • Small footprint, low noise, low energy consumption
mq-one Seed Analyzer XL

100 ml sample volume results in representative sampling even for semi homogenous and inhomogeneous samples like sunflower seeds. Sample weight can be directly transferred from a connected balance to the PC respectively the minispec control software. The analysis of oil and moisture is done simultaneously and takes only about 30 seconds. The mq-one XL offers an optimal price-performance ratio and provides outmost stability thanks to the fact that all electronics are located in the temperature-stabilized mq-one housing.


The mq-one XL fully supports the following international standard methods:

  • AOCS Ak4-95
  • ISO 10565 and ISO 10632
