NIR Analysis in Laboratory and Laboratories – aka NIR Labs and NIR testing

Do you have a NIR spectrometer in your Lab?

How many other analytics you do in the Lab could be done faster and cheaper with NIR?

Is this possible and precise enough?

Try, we have the solution for you!
You have the NIR, scan the samples, you have the lab values and the spectra, we calibrate for you!

To see if the application is possible and how precise it can be due to knowledge based intensive model optimizations.

We do the NIR feasibility study with data for you. Fixed prices

NIR has huge application potentials and it’s a Green analytical method, that’s fast and easy to use. And has today the possibility to scale out with inexpensive mobile NIR spectrometers.

Bring the Lab to the sample. To avoid sample transport and get immediate results for decision at the place or in the process.

Just try the NIR application, use the NIR daily, collect data in parallel, we develop, optimize and maintain the calibration models for you.

How do you think?

Start Calibrate

What is possible today with NIR?
The number of different Applications exploded in the last 2-3 years!
See NIR research papers news daily on @CalibModel or the 7-day summariesNIR News Weekly” here.
