ultra-compact, cost-effective MicroNIR spectrometer measures wavelengths of 950
– 1650 or 1150 – 2150 nm, weighs less than 60 grams, and is USB powered or wireless.
Offering the highest performance-to-price ratio in the industry, the ubiquitous
MicroNIR integrates all components into a small unit suitable for convenient,
portable use in the field as well as on-line or at-line process monitoring and
control. The MicroNIR enables real-time, non-destructive evaluations anywhere.
for Raw Material Identification
Raw material identification
or verification (of the packaging label) is a common quality-control practice.
In the pharmaceutical industry, the increasing global footprint of the supply
chain and public health concerns resulting from contaminated materials (or mislabeling)
have driven many regulatory bodies to require inspection of every barrel in every
shipment of materials used in the manufacture of pharmaceutical drugs. Handheld
analytical instruments are becoming more common for rapid and non-destructive
testing of incoming raw materials directly in warehouses, reducing the cost and
time needed for taking samples to the laboratory and quarantining incoming shipments
until lab testing is complete. Read

for Narcotics and Explosives Detection
collaboration with the National Forensic Science Technology Center (NFSTC) in
Largo, Florida, a library of the top 25 narcotics materials has been built with
the MicroNIR 1700 spectrometer. In addition, a small library of explosive precursors
has been created.
video provides a demonstration of how the MicroNIR spectrometer can successfully
identify heroin, cocaine, and oxycodone rapidly, non-destructively, and in small
quantities of less than 20 milligrams. Watch
