The field of spectroscopy is changing rapidly. Trials have been made to develop next-generation devices, and various new techniques have been developed to meet the demands of the future. Our whitepaper summarizes the current status of the main technologies and solutions around miniaturized NIR spectrometers and gives practical guidelines on how to choose the correct technology for applications.
Our solution, FoodScanner, is based on our novel spectral sensing platform. It utilizes the world’s smallest near-infrared (NIR) spectral sensing module, advanced algorithms, cloud-connectivity and a vast material library. It is able to detect the fat, protein, sugar and total energy content of food items at high accuracy.
Almost all material has an optical fingerprint or spectrum. Different compounds can be identified on the basis of their fingerprint. Near Infrared (NIR) spectrometers are widely used in many fields to measure material content such as moisture, fat, protein, hydrocarbons, textiles, polymers and pharmaceutical ingredients.
