NIR Spectrometers

The 900-2500 nm wavelength range just beyond the visible offers a tremendous wealth of information about the composition of materials that can be used for material identification, quality control, process monitoring, and many medical applications – particularly when combined with the power of chemometrics. Our compact NIR spectrometers give you access to that region with unprecedented sensitivity, signal to noise ratio (SNR), and repeatability – far beyond that of the typical spectrometer based on an InGaAs detector array. Learn why, and see the data to prove it.

The Wasatch performance advantage translates into several key benefits:

  • Low-light measurements can be collected with much faster acquisition times, enabling averaging to further improve SNR, or real-time monitoring of subjects and processes
  • Chemometric models developed are much more robust, and can be translated across instruments without loss of accuracy
  • Limit of detection (LOD) is improved significantly, allowing detection of trace materials and contaminants, or early identification of disease
