Near-Infrared spectroscopy is used to study the unique features of a material by shining a specific light on them. The materials reflect a unique pattern, like a fingerprint. Spectroscopy makes these fingerprints visible. It allows the identification, differentiation, condition monitoring and quality assurance of substances.
Spectrometers are in widespread use in laboratories and cutting-edge researches, thanks to their great accuracy. But these instruments are expensive, bulky, location-bound and complex to operate.
Our solution combines a pocket-sized, portale NIR-sensor with connectivity for mobile apps and cloud-based reference libraries with machine learning algorithms. This extremely powerful tool enables you to create your own unique material scanner.
Here, the NIRONE scanner offers a portable, cost-effective and powerful solution for material detection at the touch of a button – anytime, anywhere.
Our highly miniaturised sensors offer excellent performance and only a fraction of the cost.
With your smartphone you get an instant analysis about the type and composition of the sample.
Get instant results.
Take measurements easily classify materials where ever you are.
Measure as many samples as you want without damaging them and conduct testing in a more sustainable way.
Create your own the solution und get chemometric models custome made.
1. The sample is illuminated with a light source.
2. The light is either reflected or absorbed by the material.
3. A detector observes the light reflected by or transmitted through the sample and converts it into data.
4. The data is analyzed the optical fingerprint of the sample and indentify the material and its composition.
Moisture is a critical parameter in industrial processes. Read more about Spectral Engines’ solutions for ultra-low moisture analysis in smart process industry.
Over 10% of all pharmaceuticals in the global supply chain are counterfeit and counterfeit medicines cause over €200 billion in compounded losses per year, worldwide. Counterfeit pharmaceuticals have a negative impact on the economy and pose a serious threat to human health.
The textile industry is the world’s second-largest industrial polluter after the oil and petrochemical industry. Textiles account for 10% of global carbon emissions, use vast amounts of water and energy, and get produced with highly toxic chemicals.
The world needs more solutions for dealing with what happens with plastics after it is thrown away. A critical factor in this is the proper analysis of waste plastics as early as possible because separation costs increase the further the logistics chain the plastic waste goes through unsorted.
