What is a NIR calibration used for?

NIR calibrations are used for NIR contents analysis as a productive analytical method. That is a two step procedure.
  1. A NIR analyzer does a non-destructive optical scan of a sample that yields a measured spectrum in seconds.
  2. A NIR calibration model can quantitatively predict (analyze, determine, estimate) multiple constituents, ingredients, contents, analytes, assay, API and other parameters and attributes (chemical, physical, biological, biochemical, sensory) summarized as properties, out of a single spectrum in milli seconds.
The NIR analysis is a very fast non-destructive analysis method that can replace or backup slower methods like wet chemical analysis, chemistry laboratory, sensory panels or rheology (viscosity). Or a NIR calibration can open the door to new possibilities of analytics, quality assurance and process control, by developing calibration models for parameters that seems to be impossible, because they are based on human knowledge, empirical values or sensory like taste value. If you have an NIR instrument, you can measure your samples systematically and thus develop your own calibration models.

What is JCAMP-DX ?

JCAMP-DX is a Electronic Data Standards for long-term storage and transfer of chemometric information. The standard is development by the International Union of Pure and Applied Chemistry (IUPAC).

JCAMP-DX is an abreviation for the Joint Committee on Atomic and Molecular Physical data – Data eXchange.

It is an human readable file format that is used to store near infrared spectrometry data (and others like Raman, UV, NMR, mass, x-ray, chromatograms, thermograms) and related chemical and physical information and is used since the late 80s.

Almost all NIR-software packages can export the spectra including the reference values as JCAMP-DX. A single file can contain multiple spectra and reference values. A JCAMP file name looks like “sample.dx“, “sample.jdx” or “sample.jcm“.

All data are stored as labeled fields of variable length using printable ASCII characters. Such files can be loaded in an text editor to check the content:

What is NIR-Spectroscopy? (simple explanation, simply explained)

In the most cases a simple Halogen lamp emits light including the near infrared (NIR) spectrum (harmless radiation) to the sample/probe and the reflected light is measured. The light loses some energy on-and-in the sample depending on its physical and chemical (molecular) structure. The missing part of the light is treated as a fingerprint of the sample that is mathematically analyzed with prefabricated NIR calibration models (built with chemometric methods), based on trained known samples. That makes it possible to simultaneous analyze multiple physical- and chemical-properties (constituent, ingredient, analyte) within a few seconds and is non-destructive to samples.
