Get In Touch

Hardware, Software, and Expertise Come Together for End-to-End Material Analysis  

Laboratories, researchers and businesses partner with Si-Ware to add testing to additional points in the value chain that benefit from rapid results.

Our platform consists of business ready hardware devices, intuitive software, and secure cloud services, all built around our first- and best-in-class single-MEMS-chip FT-NIR spectrometer. Our technology has broad universal application to materials in liquid and solid forms, across practically all industries and scientific applications.

Analyze the contents of any substance, just by touching it with a small rugged mobile device. As is and in place instead of sending a sample to a lab. With the same accuracy, thanks to the partnership between NeoSpectra and your trusted lab. Without having to calibrate or baby-sit the device.

Thanks to well recognized long-term scientific research and award winning multi-generation product innovation, NeoSpectra now delivers these benefits in the form of an all-in-one material analysis solution platform. It consists of hardware devices, software apps and cloud services, all built around our first- and best-in-class single-MEMS-chip FT-NIR spectrometer. Our technology has broad universal application to materials in liquid and solid forms, across practically all industries and scientific applications.

NeoSpectra’s first generation of technology won the 2014 Prism Award in Test, Measurement and Metrology. With this award, the International Society for Optics and Photonics (SPIE) credited Neospectra’s invention as the “first alignment-free, calibration-free, and shock-resistant Fourier Transform-IR module on a chip”. Since then, Neospectra devices evolved through three generations to their current form. NeoSpectra engineers and scientists continue to publish actively, garnering the respect of independent researchers as evidenced by recommendations. Published research results have consistently supported the continued technical superiority of Neospectra technology.

On a typical day, the farmer carefully samples key substances like cattle feed, and sends them to a trusted lab which reports back accurate results within hours or days. With help from a nutritionist, the farmer adjusts the feed mix to optimize livestock health and yield. Given the cost of analyzing each sample, you may have had to combine multiple samples, thus reducing the clarity of the data. This, together with the delay in getting results, means that you have to make decisions about larger than necessary units, reducing efficiency of a process that may already run at thin profit margins.

Feed Analysis

Get Accurate Feed Analysis in Real-Time

Don’t leave feed quality up to chance. In-field feed analysis allows farmers to make real-time decisions on feed adjustments to maximize livestock performance and reduce overall feed costs.

With NeoSpectra, you get instant access to all of your measurements, make  quick decisions about small feed batches. You boost nutritional benefit and minimize waste, thus increasing your profit margin. Furthermore, you visualize and understand the entire history of feed composition in your farm as a whole. You receive automatic alerts to help you detect issues and react in time.
You do all this at roughly the same total cost you’re already incurring.

Unmatched Breadth of Applications

NeoSpectra devices offer an unmatched range of form factors, thus delivering on the promise of the theoretical universality, compactness, robustness and useability of NeoSpectra’s single-chip FT-NIR spectrometer. Notably, NeoSpectra’s chips capture most of the NIR spectrum, thus detecting and measuring the widest range of chemical groups or compounds. The result is that the scope of NeoSpectra applications extends across a huge set of industries, as well as a vast array of use cases.

Focus Areas

NeoSpectra is committed to addressing each industry on its own terms, with the right partners and full support. Our current priorities focus on food and agriculture first, but with strong interest in health and pharmaceuticals. We are open to considering industrial manufacturing broadly and even consumer applications.

Comprehensive Use Cases

Our spectrometers work with solid or liquid materials, in-place or loaded in a simple transparent container. NeoSpectra products come in a variety of form factors to suit almost every possible usage scenario. The handheld Scanner is easy to carry in the field, with a dust cover that doubles as an auto-self-calibration mirror. The Puck, with such a small footprint, fits on any horizontal surface, and can be easily shared between different users. Both of these require the use of a mobile phone loaded with the NeoSpectra app. The self-contained Solo has the app built-in, so it can be used on any horizontal surface standalone. Forthcoming accessories will expand the product suite to add robotic automation etc.

Food Example: Milk

Instantly Analyze Anywhere Accurately

A dairy production facility must monitor its milk output or input to ensure consistent high quality. To determine the composition of each batch of milk, samples have to be sent to a lab for analysis, but not too many and not too frequently to control costs. Results arrive in hours or days. It’s as if you’re using an old film camera that takes wide-angle pictures that you can only see after they’re developed hours or days after the fact.
By contrast, NeoSpectra yields immediate accurate results for as many samples as you need to get a high-resolution instant picture of your operation. This allows you to react with speed and precision, at potentially significant savings.

Milk is one of the materials for which independent scientists have conducted a systematic comparison of compact spectrometer accuracy across the industry. The methodology follows the internationally-recognized ICAR standard. NeoSpectra has consistently achieved near-lab accuracy, yet with compactness, mobility, robustness and ease-of-use. Uniquely broad NIR coverage endows NeoSpectra with the further advantage of capturing the most components of interest in a substance.

Mature 3rd Generation Product Line

Based on World-First Patented Technology

Neospectra’s patented technology leads the world in achieving the attributes necessary and practical for successful farm material quality control in the data age. Our technology delivers broad sample and component coverage, analysis accuracy, sample penetration depth, instant results and holistic data analytics, as well as device mobility, ruggedness and ease-of-use.
 
While there are many technical breakthroughs represented by dozens of our patents and published research papers, we can summarize them in two major buckets. First, we not only miniaturized a full-NIR-spectrum lab spectrometer onto a MEMS semiconductor chip that includes the necessary optical, mechanical and electrical components, but we also improved on the basic spectrometer design to add automatic self-calibration. Further, we added a powerful computational engine that enables our key features including the Fourier Transform (FT). Our MEMS chips are the brains of all our devices. Second, we designed our Lab Cloud for our partners to encode and deliver their material-specific knowledge and expertise, and do so in a manner that leverages the special advantages our NS device.
