Start Calibrate – NIR Quick Guide

Quick Start NIR Workflow: step by step

1. Check if your NIR-Device Data Format is directly supported (anyway you can convert to JCAMP) : NIR-Predictor supported Spectral Data File Formats

2. Download the free NIR-Predictor Software that contains demo data so you can play with it to see if it is the way you want analyse your NIR spectra (no registration needed) : NIR-Predictor Download

3. With your “NIR device” measurement software:

  • measure samples with NIR, that gets you spectra files,
  • label them with a proper sample name, so you know which is which,
  • and determine quantitative reference values by Laboratory reference method.
  • at least 60 samples with different contents is needed for a minimal calibration.
  • NIR-Predictor helps to create a template file (.csv) to enter the Lab values.

4. Creating your own Calibrations with NIR-Predictor to combine your NIR and Lab data for a calibration request : Creating your own Calibrations
