Click to ViewAnalyze any sample type rapidly and accurately, The Antaris II FT-NIR analyzer and RESULT software have been shown in this raw material application to be very effective tools for integrating FT-NIR analytics into the front end of a process analytical protocol. Reproduce results regardless of configuration, maintenance, user or environment. Achieve fast, precise and accurate measurements in the lab or in the plant

  Working Principles
Click to ViewNear-infrared (NIR) spectroscopy is based on the absorption of electromagnetic radiation at wave numbers in the range 4000–12500cm-1. NIR spectra comprise broad bands arising from overlapping absorptions corresponding mainly to overtones and combinations of vibrational modes involving CH, OH and NH chemical bonds. The 2 concentrations of constituents such as water, protein, fat and carbohydrate can in principle be determined using classical absorption spectroscopy.

  User Instructions
NIR spectroscopy combined with multivariate analysis is a technique capable of quantifying the parameters under study, performing the analysis both in a very short time, with little sample preparation and very cost-effective.1.Expected quantitative and qualitative data can be provided. 2.Solvent for mobile phase should be mentioned or solubility of compound in volatile solvent should be given. 3.The operating conditions should be supplied along with the sample. 4.Source of the compound should be mentioned. 5.MS-DS (Material Safety Data Sheet) should be given along with samples to ensure that there are no toxic sample being given. Samples should not be toxic or hazardous. Samples will not be accepted unless accompanied by MS-DS. 6.Quantitative analysis will be subjected to the availability of the compound library for the analysis
