The ultra-compact, low-cost MicroNIR spectrometer is ideal for multiple pharmaceutical manufacturing operations including monitoring drying conditions, ribbon density, tablet hardness, API content, process endpoints, and raw-material identification. Measuring wavelengths of 950 – 1650 or 1150 – 2150 nm, the complete device weighs less than 60 grams and is USB powered or wireless.
The ubiquitous MicroNIR offers the highest performance-to-price ratio in the industry and is an essential part of every PAT engineer’s process development and transfer toolbox. It integrates a linear variable filter (LVF) as the dispersive element, detector, light source, collection optics, and electronics into a palm-sized unit suitable for convenient, portable use in the field as well as mounting anywhere on-line. The fully customisable MicroNIR enables real-time, non-destructive evaluations anywhere.
