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 Spectroscopy and Chemometric surveys, polls and assessments (Part 2)

5. Calibration Precision
What do you believe, can NIR calibration models be more precise than reference values?

6. Calibration Maintenance
How often do you update your quantitative calibrations per year?

7. Quantitative Calibrations
How many quantitative (%) calibrations do you have in use?

8. Quantitative Parameters
In all your quantitative calibrations, how many parameters (properties) you have in total?

9. Qualitative Calibrations
How many qualitative (identification) calibrations do you have in use?
