NIR spectroscopy is a fast non-destructive analytical method. Almost any kind of sample can be scanned within seconds with minimal or even no preparation at all. NIRS can verify the identity of a sample and quantify multiple chemical and physical properties simultaneously.
Research and quality control laboratories benefit from NIRS alike. While researchers can accelerate their experimentation, QC departments benefit from the ability to analyze hundreds of samples per day – both saving substantial amounts of time and money.
Yes, the NIRFlex N-500 is a benchtop spectrometer mostly for laboratory use. The NIRMaster™ and NIRMaster™ Pro provide high ingress protection and are therewith ideal for benchtop analysis at production sites. The NIR-Online™ provides analyis in real time directly on the prodcution line.
While the number of parameters measurable within a calibration model is only limited by computing power and complexity of the analysis, it is common to analyze 15-30 properties at the same time.
