Portable Innovations New Mobile near Infrared Spectroscopy Solution
Trinami X, a wholly-owned subsidiary of BASF, recently announced the launch of a mobile near infrared (NIR) spectroscopy solution. Spectroscopy is a well-proven analysis method that the company now makes affordable and accessible beyond factory and laboratory applications.
The firm offers all the needed competences in a single, handheld device: mobile and robust hardware, precise data and material analytics and excellent molecular and chemical expertise.
Informed and healthy life decisions are ones that everyone tries to make, but sometimes the visible information presented to the eyes is just not enough. The company helps to improve on-the-spot decision-making through its new mobile NIR solutions. NIR spectroscopy will now be affordable and accessible beyond factory and laboratory applications, states the firm.
The firm has developed a powerful and proprietary measurement device, including an in-house produced infrared semiconductor, to quickly and accurately analyse the molecular structure of different materials in a wavelength range up to 2,5 µm. The company’s IR semiconductors are very small and have a high detectivity, and as such enable the creation of a powerful, miniaturised NIR spectrometer: a ‘lab in your pocket’, adds the company.
Powerful Combination of Sensor, Data Analytics and Molecular Expertise
The firm offers all the needed competences in a single, handheld device: mobile and robust hardware, precise data and material analytics and excellent molecular and chemical expertise –thanks to being a subsidiary of BASF, opines the company.
Applications range from agriculture to food and beverage testing as well as chemical and industrial processes. Inbound control, quality checks, on-the-field analytics, material sorting and identification are amongst the use cases that the company can support. The firm’s production capabilities are designed for high-volume production runs all the way up to consumer electronics-level supply demands.
