Potential usage of NIR analysis and its industry fields of applications

What is typically measured by NIR Analysis? NIR Calibrations are used for the determination of the content of moisture, fat, protein, starch, lactose, fructose, glucose, alcohol, amino acids, oil, sugar, fiber, salt, Brix, caffeine, lysine, ash, gluten, etc. Where is near-infrared spectroscopy analysis used? NIR Analysis used in the industry area of
  • Agriculture
  • Food and Feed
  • Food and Beverages
  • Food and Dairy

What is a NIR calibration used for?

NIR calibrations are used for NIR contents analysis as a productive analytical method. That is a two step procedure.
  1. A NIR analyzer does a non-destructive optical scan of a sample that yields a measured spectrum in seconds.
  2. A NIR calibration model can quantitatively predict (analyze, determine, estimate) multiple constituents, ingredients, contents, analytes, assay, API and other parameters and attributes (chemical, physical, biological, biochemical, sensory) summarized as properties, out of a single spectrum in milli seconds.
The NIR analysis is a very fast non-destructive analysis method that can replace or backup slower methods like wet chemical analysis, chemistry laboratory, sensory panels or rheology (viscosity). Or a NIR calibration can open the door to new possibilities of analytics, quality assurance and process control, by developing calibration models for parameters that seems to be impossible, because they are based on human knowledge, empirical values or sensory like taste value. If you have an NIR instrument, you can measure your samples systematically and thus develop your own calibration models.

Recent advanced chemometric methods

You are searching for recent advanced chemometric methods to get better calibration models for NIR? Methods and algorithms like:
  • Artificial Neural Networks (ANN)
  • General Regression Neural Networks (GR-NN)
  • RBF Neural Networks (RBF-NN)
  • Support Vector Machines (SVM)
  • Multiway Partial Least Squares (MPLS),
  • Orthogonal PLS (OPLS), (O-PLS), OPLS-AA, OPLS-ANN
  • Hierarchical Kernel Partial Least Squares (HKPLS)
  • Random Forest (RF)
  • etc.
and data pre-processing methods like
  • Extended Multiplicative Signal Correction (EMSC)
  • Orthogonal Signal Correction (OSC)
  • Dynamic Orthogonal Projection (DOP)
  • Error Removal by Orthogonal Subtraction (EROS)
  • External Parameter Orthogonalization (EPO)
  • etc.
that are partly available as modules for software packages like Matlab, Octave, R-Project, etc. Why invest a lot of time and money with new tools?
