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.
- 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
