Electronic instruments and machines for life and nature : Food, medicine, pharmacy. The specificity of measuringthe living lies in large variations within the same batch or sample. The statistical aspect is very important.We have started operations in 1985 under the name “Agro Technologie”, the co-inventor of the Durofel machine dedicated to soft fruits and vegetables firmness measurement. Since then, we provide the best value for money instruments worldwide to packers, growers, manufacturers, researchers, goverments and universities. Agrosta exports to 54 countries, our main markets are Chili, Spain, USA and South Africa. We start to export more and more to Asia and Oceania : Agrosta becomes a reference in Indonesia and Australia.We design simple, easy to use and efficient instruments for measuring texture, size, color+ infrared and weight. In order to keep low production costs and high quality, we use open source technologies and 3D printing. So we have the tools to design in a very short time any specific instrument.Our sales have increased by 57% between 2016 and 2017, through word of mouth and satisfied customers.We have simplified all administrative procedures in order to focus on technology and service to clients.Agrosta is considered as world leader in : Blueberries firmness testing, Chicken breasts texture measurement to detect deep myopathy, Turntable laboratory multifunctional machines for soft fruits, Cherries maturity testing, Tomato firmness testing. We intend to become soon leaders in the fields of : Versatile texturometry for food, Near Infrared measurements of fruits and vegetables pulp..If you choose to work with Agrosta, you are sure to buy the best technology worldwide for the best price !Laurent Klotz, the owner and founder of Agrosta, is an engineer. He has worked many years in the aerospace industry : Onboard instruments on Ariane 5 and Soyuz, self-destruction systems for rockets, and avionics instruments. He is fascinated by instrumentation, and has designed his first electronic boards at the age of 12. Laurent has been involved as well in the new LHC line of the CERN of Geneva, that did find the Higgs Boson.. He loves to design and sell instruments for agronomy and medicine, and will always be available for listening to your requirements
Partnerships := Experts in Agrosta products- Calibration of handheld instruments for fruits : Agro Metrologie / France :
We have started operations in 1985 under the name “Agro Technologie”, which had designed the Durofel in cooperation with the research center named CtiflAgrosta is a fully integrated company. Our workshop is equipped with machines for electronics and mechanical parts. Most of the production machines we are using have been designed and assembled by our teamThat’s the reason why our ‘time to market’ is very short, we design machines adapted to our clients requirements within a few weeks, and we can personalize some parts according to clients requestsOur sales have increased a lot with internet, and we have sold our instruments and machines in 53 different countries till now. Our main markets are UK, Usa, Canada, Chili, South Africa and Spain. In the last 5 years, Agrosta became the world reference in texture and firmness measurement. That’s the reason why we are now designing instruments for assisting human surgery concerning Breasts and Brain Tumors.
Founder and owner of Agrosta, Laurent is an engineer and researcherHe has worked on major world scientific projects, like the CERN of Geneva new LHC line (That did discover Higgs boson), Ariane 5 and Soyuz rockets self-destruction system, fiber optics for nuclear research…Having worked for the major aerospace groups, as well as for instruments companies like Schlumberger, Laurent became a specialist of materials and instrumentsWith Agrosta, he decided to focus on texture, and became a world specialist in texture analysers, firmness testers, combined machines for materials characterizationHe has worked on more than 30 different projects worldwide with universities, governments and private companies in the fields of agronomy, veterinary research, medicine, food industryAnd is now recognized as a world specialist of texture analysis, involved in all main scientific projects in this field worldwide : Texture of brain tumors, Deep pectoral myopathy of poultry, Research on tomatoes and blueberries new varieties..
