Are you tired of time-consuming testing methods? Have you had enough of expensive laboratory analysis? Could your workflow benefit from easy-to-use testing devices and the power of Material Sensing?

In this blog article we have listed the 5 signs that it is time for your company to switch to the SenoLab and profit from its many advantages.

1. Your current analysis methods are time consuming

The analysis of samples in laboratories can take anywhere from a few hours up to several days. If you have to ship your samples to an external lab, the waiting time is probably even longer due to shipping delays - swallowing more of your valuable time. But no matter whether you are analyzing textiles, yarn, cannabis, or other materials – there is a quicker way.

Material Sensing offers a fast and mobile method to analyze materials and receive information about their composition and quality instantly. The SenoLab can record measurements within seconds and the results are accessible on your laptop or mobile phone immediately.

2. You spend too much of your budget on material analysis

Laboratory analysis and the use of quality certification authorities can be rather expensive. If you also consider the rates to ship samples to those places, the costs can quickly reach unreasonable proportions. While internal lab spectrometers bypass shipping costs, they are expensive to buy, and it takes trained staff to run them.

Material Sensing offers a more affordable way that does not require any expensive equipment or extensive knowledge. The SenoLab can be purchased under a monthly or yearly subscription and gives you full control over your spendings. Additionally, you can save money on professional training as anyone in your company can use the SenoLab – no prior experiences necessary.

3. You can't fully comprehend the results that laboratories provide

While laboratory results are highly accurate, they are sometimes equally confusing for people that have no experience in interpreting them. You don’t know how exactly the samples were analyzed and so neither do you understand any of the technical jargon written on the results.

Material Sensing enables the output of easy-to-understand information about composition and quality of samples without unnecessary technical jargon. The results generated by the SenoLab are precise and comprehensible. For example, when measuring a textile sample the result might be that it contains 21% cotton and 79% polyester. You can change the settings on your account and have the results outputted as detailed or broad as you want them to be.

4. Your current testing methods are shrinking your resources

Unfortunately, laboratory analysis methods, such as burning and solubility tests, are often destructive. Tests of this nature damage samples and prevent you from reusing, repurposing, or selling them later on.

Material Sensing offers a non-destructive way to analyze materials. The handheld device is placed on the sample, the measurement is conducted, and the sample remains undamaged. This is why the SenoLab can be applied to test the quality and composition of materials during production: the analyzed samples can simply continue along the production line once the measurement is completed. This saves resources and avoids unnecessary waste from being created.

5. You want to stay ahead of your competition

Just imagine: While your competitors struggle with high costs, long waiting times and wasted resources, you are enhancing your processes and are reacting to issues in quality immediately - simply by applying the power of Material Sensing.

The SenoLab enables you to take measurements wherever you are: when procuring materials, during incoming goods inspections, on the production floor, or before shipping products to customers. Quality checks can be conducted effortlessly and at the touch of a button, letting you stay ahead of your competition.
