The food industry depends on CEM to create progressive and innovative technologies that answer the need for advanced solutions for laboratory applications in food manufacturing. As the pioneering firm in microwave-based laboratory instrumentation, we have been internationally recognized through numerous awards and publications for the innovative technologies we have developed. Many of our methods are the only microwave methods approved by the AOAC and other organizations.

Our fast, accurate moisture analyzers have been utilized in the dairy industry for over 25 years, and now CEM offers an AOAC-approved method for fat analysis, as well. The SMART Trac™ System uses a unique combination of microwave energy and NMR technology to create a fat and moisture analyzer that does not require frequent calibration or the use of hazardous solvents, yet provides accurate results in minutes in a wide variety of dairy products.

The SMART Trac System is the only direct, rapid technique that determines free and chemically bound fat. Unlike indirect methods (such as near infrared systems), which only measure the fat in a small portion of a sample, the SMART Trac System measures fat throughout the entire sample. This direct measurement yields an accurate analysis that is not dependent on sample uniformity and is not affected by changes in color or texture.

The SMART Trac has received the R&D 100 Award, the PENC Governor's New Product Award and the NSPE New Product Award for its innovative design and engineering.

Based in Matthews, North Carolina, CEM has subsidiaries in the United Kingdom, France, Italy and Germany, as well as a large network of distributors worldwide. Our excellent customer service, expert applications assistance, and skilled technical support on a global basis have been the hallmarks of CEM's corporate philosophy. Our commitment to you doesn't end when your system is shipped: it begins.
