NeoSpectra Technology

Learn about the design behind our cutting-edge FT-NIR technology which delivers near-lab performance.

How FT-NIR works

Every material has a unique response to light. With Near InfraRed (NIR) spectroscopy, the analysis of the light interacting with a certain material can reveal crucial insights about its composition. NeoSpectra FT-NIR analyzers capture more of the NIR spectrum, to detect and measure the widest range of chemical groups or compounds.

Extending across a huge set of industries, and a vast array of use cases, NeoSpectra analyzers 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.

Technical Breakthroughs in FT-NIR

Dozens of patents and published research papers represent our technical advancements in FT-NIR. We miniaturized a full-NIR-spectrum lab spectrometer onto a Micro Electro Mechanical Systems (MEMS) semiconductor chip that includes the necessary optical, mechanical and electrical components. We also improved on the basic spectrometer design to add automatic self-calibration. Plus, we added a powerful computational engine that enables key features including the Fourier Transform (FT).
