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.

Meet us at the NIR 2013 – 16th International Conference on Near Infrared Spectroscopy (ICNIRS 2013)

Meet us at the NIR 2013 – 16th International Conference on Near Infrared Spectroscopy (ICNIRS 2013) in Montpeiller, France , 2-7 June 2013. If you are interested in analysis and optimization of your data during the conference, please take a JCAMP export of your data on a USB-memory stick with you. We will also present a poster P129 : ‘A novel intelligent knowledge-based Chemometric Software Framework for quantitative NIR Calibration Modeling‘ by Roman Bossart   some links : La Grande Motte Panorama, WebCam, Weather
