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

About the included Demo-Spectra and Demo-Calibrations

The demo calibrations for the spectrometers from

  • Si-Ware Systems
  • Spectral Engines
  • Texas Instruments
  • VIAVI

are built with the raw data, thankfully provided from Prof. Heinz W Siesler, from this publication

“Hand-held near-infrared spectrometers:
State-of-the-art instrumentation and practical applications”
