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

Properties File Creator

A tool for the NIR-User to create the property file easily. It helps to create a CSV file from the measured spectra files with sample names and properties to edit in Spreadsheet/EXCEL software. Lets you enter Lab-Reference-Values in a sample-based manner, corresponding to your sample spectra for calibration. It contains clever automatic analysis mechanisms of inconsistencies in your raw-data to increase the data quality for calibration. Provides detailed analyzer information for manual data cleanup when needed.

It’s time saving and less error prone because you DON’T need to open each spectrum file separately in an editor and copy the spectral values into a table grid beside the Lab-values.

Properties File Creator saves you from:

  • manually error prone and boring tasks
  • importing multiple data files and combining it’s content manually into a single data file to append the lab reference values (aka properties)
  • programming and writing scripts to transform the data into the shape needed
  • no trouble with data handling of
    • Wavelength / Wavenumber information (x-axis)
    • Absorbance / Reflectance labeling (y-axis)
    • checking compatibility of the raw data before merging
    • Averaging Spectral Intensities of a Sample
    • coping, flipping and transposing rows and colums to get the X-Block and Y-Block data sets ready for calibration modeling
    • limited and error prone table grid functionality

Because it’s all automatic and you can check the results and get the analysis information!

Properties File Creator provides you – a individual template based on your raw-data for combining NIR and Lab-values – analysis and checks for better data quality for calibration

Top 8 Reasons why you should use
Automated NIR Calibration Service

  • No subjective model selection
  • No variation in results and interpretation
  • No overfitting model
  • Better accuracy
  • Better precision
  • Time saving!
  • No software cost (no need for Chemometric software and training)
  • One free prediction software for all your NIR systems

Reduce Total Cost of Ownership (TCO) of your NIR

To be ahead of competitors – by not owning a chemometric software – by not struggling days with these complicated software – by not deep dive into chemometrics theory

It takes significant know-how and continous investment to develop calibrations – You need to have the relevant skill sets in your organization. – That means salaries (the biggest expense in most organizations)

To get most out of it, start now! – use the free NIR-Predictor together with your NIR-Instrument software – as an NIR-Vendor, integrate the free NIR-Predictor OEM into your NIR-Instrument software – don’t delay time-to-market
