NeoSpectra-Scanner - portable NIR handheld spectrometer

The rugged and ready-to-use handheld scanner allows the quantification or qualification of a wide range of materials via near-infrared spectroscopy. Since the NeoSpectra-Scanner covers a very broad NIR spectral range from 1.350 nm – 2.500 nm, the best possible characterization of the measured material is guaranteed. The large measuring spot allows an optimal measurement of even inhomogeneous samples.

With IP65 classification, user-friendly and ergonomic design, and the ability to perform up to 1000 measurements on one battery charge, the NeoSpectra-Scanner is the perfect solution for quality control and other mobile measurements, even in harsh environments.

Typical applications:
  • Agriculture: field measurements of composition of e.g. soil, grain, feed, milk
  • Food: determination of sugar, protein and oil concentration…
  • Industry: differentation of textiles, polymeres, …
    Monitoring of chemicals, gas concentrations,…
  • Medicine: e.g. urine analysis, blood analysis, hair analysis, non-invasive alcohol measurement

      Typical steps for calibration:

      Calibration models can be easily created for many substances. These allow direct conclusions drawn from a measured NIR spectrum about the properties of the measured material. For example, after a measurement with the hand scanner, the protein concentration of milk can be displayed by a corresponding calibration model on the connected Android device.

      A requirement is that the materials have product-specific bands in the very broad wavelength range of 1.350 – 2.500 nm, which the hand scanner covers. If the measurement task can be realized in the near infrared range, the calibration model can be compiled in the following steps:

      • Collecting samples
      • Characterization of the samples by reference measurements
      • Measurement of the same samples with the hand scanner
      • Data analysis to correlate the spectra with the reference measurements
      • Storage of the resulting calibration model in the software

      We and the team of Si-Ware Systems will be happy to support you with this. Our colleagues at Si-Ware Systems can also develop complete chemometric models, using their extensive experience from other customer projects.
