NIR Calibration Modeling

The majority of NIR calibrations are generated using a small number of different parameter settings and all too often are restricted to the time a user has available, their spectroscopic and chemometric knowledge and their ability (tedious use of the software) to choose and combine all the possible parameter settings required for good calibrations.

There are many published standards and guidelines (protocols) available for developing NIR calibrations from Standards Consortium such as ASTM, EMEA, ICH, IUPAC, ISO, USP, PASG etc. as well as many good recommendations and guidelines found in various textbooks and papers.

The difficulty with so many ‘Protocols’ for the NIR user is to have them all available and in their thought processes during calibration work and in addition to execute, check and challenge all calibrations generated manually. This is time consuming and sometimes boring repetitive work.

To simplify this for the person generating the NIR Calibrations, we have collected the good practices protocols and integrated them into our service that automates the calibration building and evaluation procedures.
