Near InfraRed (NIR) spectrophotometry is an extremely versatile analytical technique that can determine the chemical composition of the product being analysed by exploiting the interaction of light energy with the molecules that make up the product. But where can it be used?

The versatility of this technique makes it possible to use it in various sectors:

  • Industrial sector: The market includes specific solutions for the industrial sector. Instruments designed to be used both in production lines and for the management of industrial processes, for the classification of goods, raw materials and materials.
  • Agriculture and agri-food: spectrophotometry is playing an increasingly crucial role in this sector. Instruments designed for the agricultural and agri-food sector facilitate work and significantly improve quality.
  • Chemical and scientific: The modularity and versatility of NIR spectrophotometry makes this technique particularly suitable for the needs of laboratories, research centres and the chemical industry in general.

Why choose NIR spectrophotometry?

We have already extensively described where this technique can be used. Generally speaking, in every application the benefits it brings are many: greater efficiency, increased quality of work, simplification of processes, innovation.

More specifically, the fact that spectrophotometry can be used in various fields of application is due to the characteristics that distinguish this technique:

Immediate: individual measurements take place in a few thousandths of a second.

– Multi-parametric: with the same analysis it is possible to obtain results for several parameters.

Non-destructive: analyses the sample as it is, without deteriorating or compromising it in any way.

Easily applicable in different contexts: these are compact and robust systems that are easily applicable in different processes and on different types of product.

Over the years, technological progress has led to extremely precise and reliable technologies that can now be used directly in the process and not just in the laboratory.
ITPhotonics is certainly up to date in this respect: research, innovation, study contribute to the creation of professional and always innovative spectrophotometers. The PolispecNir range is an example of this and represents the quality, uniqueness and usefulness of spectrophotometry.
