`A technique of growing plants in nutrient solution”. Hydroponics literally means water-working or water-activation. It is a cultivation technique for growing plants in highly oxygenated, nutrient enriched water, rather than soil. The nutrient solution and its management are the cornerstone for a successful hydroponics system. The function of a hydroponics nutrient solution is to supply the plant roots with water, oxygen and essential mineral elements in soluble form. In soil, biological decomposition breaks down organic matter into basic nutrients that plants feed on. Water dissolves these nutrients which allows uptake by the roots. For a plant to receive a well balanced diet, everything in the soil must be in perfect balance.

Different sorts of food and agricultural products may contain various concentrations of nutrients, ranging from trace amounts to percentage levels. While most of these nutrient concentrations are healthy, some can be toxic to humans or animals. Bruker offers simple and effective nutrient testing solutions for the determination of nutritional elements in food and agricultural samples with routine and reliable nutrient analysis. All of our solutions enable fast, accurate and precise measurement of nutritional contents and concentrations from sub parts-per-trillion to high percentage ranges.
