Summary of the NIR Chemometric survey polls

Summary of the NIR Chemometric survey polls (as of end of Sept. 2013)

The interesting finding is that most of the answers fit the following pattern. The most companies that use NIR have one NIR Instrument and only one employee that is able to develop NIR calibrations. For that the most common off-the-shelf chemometrics program is used and spent 2 hours or over a month and therefore gets no calibration training about the complex topics like Chemometrics and NIR Spectroscopy or only once (introduction). The calibration maintenance ranges from never to 3 times a year. Interestingly, there was no one who uses portable NIR instruments. We continue our surveys, for the discovery of new trends. Conclusion Seeing this picture, we think that there is huge potential to improve the calibrations. Advanced knowledge can help individuals to build the calibrations with best practices and improve their models accuracy and reliability. Once the decision and investment in NIR technology is done, you should get the best out of your data, because this extra NIR performance can be given by calibration optimization. We offer this as an easy to use and independent service.

NIR Instruments

The NIR-Analysis (NIRA) also known as Near Infrared Reflectance (NIRS-Analysis) or NIR Transmission (NIT-Analysis) uses so called NIR-Spectrometer (see also NIR-Spectroscopy, NIR Spectrometry).


The supported NIR-instruments, NIR-analysers, NIR-sensors and NIR-spectrometer (near-infrared spectroscopy) are full range (e.g. 1000-2500 [nm] or 10’000-4’000 [1/cm]) from any manufacturer and technology and also Short Wave InfraRed (SWIR) 900 nm – 1700 nm, that is typically used in Hyperspectral Imaging.


The supported NIR-technology can be Fourier transform (FT-NIR), dispersive NIR, NIR-diode-array, Acousto-optic tunable filter (AOTF, AOTFNIR), etc. (on-line, in-line or at-line)
