MicroNIR OnSite W NIR spectrometer
Raw material identification
- Non destructive
- Immediate results
Identify and quantify a particular material at the touch of a button? It is now possible with the MicroNIR OnSite W near infrared spectrometer: a miniature, ultra-lightweight, wireless analyzer for instant quantitative & qualitative analysis directly in the field. MicroNIR OnSite W analyzes the spectrum of materials. It can be used to solve analytical problems in many industries (pharmaceutical, food, chemical, security), whether the materials are solid or liquid, translucent or colored, MicroNIR OnSite W analyzes them all, even through containers. The results can be viewed in real time on cell phones, tablets or PCs.
Analysis directly in the field
The design of the MicroNIR OnSite W makes it ideal for performing analysis directly in the field or at the manufacturing site. Compact, rugged and ergonomic, the MicroNIR OnSite W spectrometer is battery powered and connects wirelessly to a tablet or PC. It is small and lightweight, and features IP65 and IP67 ratings that make it dust- and waterproof to stay performing in outdoor environments.
NIR analysis for multiple applications
MicroNIR Onsite W measures the absorption of light in the near infrared by the sample in order to process the spectral data to identify and quantify the components of the sample. This non-destructive analysis method is used in many fields for various applications such as: identification of raw materials upon receipt in the pharmaceutical or cosmetic industry, quality control of finished products in the food industry, characterization of plastics, and even identification of narcotics.
Analysis in the pharmaceutical industry
With the MicroNIR OnSite W, quality control of incoming raw material batches can be performed directly upon receipt, even through plastic packaging. This eliminates the need to transport samples to the laboratory and speeds up the flow of goods.
The container information is linked to the measurement result via a barcode reader. The software can be installed according to pharmaceutical regulations (USP, EP, 21CFRp11). Detailed IQ/OQ documents are available. A suitable installation for a strictly regulated environment.
