LabSpec 4 Laboratory NIR Analyzer

LabSpec 4 Laboratory NIR Analyzer Introduction

The Labspec® line of laboratory instrumentation offers research-grade instrument performance in a rugged package suitable for transport to the sample location. LabSpec analytical instrumentation performs rapid, non-destructive materials analysis for qualitative and quantitative applications.

LabSpec 4 Standard-Res Lab Analyzer

Overview

Faster data capture, superior data quality—all in a portable lab analyzer

ASD has raised the bar, yet again, for lab equipment with the introduction of the LabSpec® 4 Standard-Res laboratory analyzer. Employing state-of-the-art near-infrared (NIR) spectroscopy, the portable lab analyzer can quickly and nondestructively measure a wide range of materials with absolute precision.


Features

Improvements to the LabSpec 4 Standard-Res’ spectrometer configuration have more than doubled the performance in the SWIR regions for faster, more complete material measurement.

  • Evaluates multiple properties simultaneously through NIR energy that penetrates several millimeters into organic substances.
  • Identifies both liquids and solids in real-time with no sample prep required.
  • Enhanced spectrometer configuration yields faster data capture with the same spectral precision, or dramatically improved data quality in the same amount of time.
  • Maintains all signal-to-noise characteristics at high analytic throughput rates for accurate evaluation of hundreds of samples per day.
  • Improved portability thanks to a standard 802.11g Wi-Fi connection and a ruggedized fiber optic cable.

With a 10 nm resolution, the LabSpec 4 Standard-Res lab analyzer provides an ideal balance between spectral resolution and noise performance and can be used for measuring materials such as food and feed products, forestry products, and a variety of raw materials.

The LabSpec 4 Standard-Res lab analyzer is available with an internal broad-spectrum halogen light source (LabSpec 4 Standard-Res i model) for more versatile material analysis.

Faster Measurements and Superior Results with the New LabSpec 4 Line of Lab Analyzers

The new LabSpec 4 line of portable lab instrumentation uses ASD’s cutting-edge near-infrared (NIR) spectroscopy to precisely measure a wide variety of materials in the lab or on site.

This line offers several enhancements including:

  • More accurate measurements with the same number of average scans
  • Improved portability thanks to a standard 802.11g Wi-Fi connection and a ruggedized fiber optic cable
  • Faster material measurements with no compromise in quality
  • Flexible measurements with an optional built-in light source.

Models for Every Measurement

LabSpec 4 Hi-Res: Ideally suited for measuring materials that have sharp, well-defined spectral features, such as polymers, petrochemicals, industrial chemicals, and pharmaceutical active ingredients.*

LabSpec 4 Standard-Res: Optimized for measurement of materials with broader spectral features, such as food and feed products, forestry products, and a variety of raw materials.*

LabSpec 4 Bench: For fixed-location laboratory analysis, this benchtop analyzer offers a space-and cost-efficient alternative to ASD’s portable LabSpec 4 Standard-Res laboratory instrument.

* “i” option for Hi-Res and Standard-Res: Optional integral light source available for more flexible measurements using a fiber optic accessory!

LabSpec 4 Hi-Res Analytical Instrument

Overview

A new level of precision in portable analytical instruments

Optimized to provide the most precise material analysis in the shortest amount of time, the LabSpec® 4 Hi-Res lab instrument is the ideal analytical instrument for fast-moving laboratory environments.


Features

The latest addition to ASD’s LabSpec line of portable lab spectrometers uses advanced near-infrared (NIR) spectroscopy to characterize a variety of materials in real-time with no sample prep. An updated spectrometer configuration delivers remarkably accurate spectral data in a fraction of the time required by previous ASD analytical instruments.

  • New spectrometer configuration more than doubles the performance in the SWIR region for faster spectra collection without any loss in data quality.
  • Spectra analysis performance and signal-to-noise characteristics remain consistent at high throughput, allowing processing of hundreds of samples per day.
  • Analyzes multiple constituents simultaneously, moving with the speed of production to evaluate incoming, in-process, or finished materials almost instantaneously.
  • Improved portability afforded by a new ruggedized fiber optic cable and a standard 802.11g Wi-Fi connection.

The LabSpec 4 Hi-Res produces exceptional high resolution spectral data while maintaining an outstanding signal-to-noise ratio. This analytical instrumentation is ideally suited for measuring materials that have sharp, well defined spectra features such as polymers, petrochemicals, industrial chemicals, and pharmaceutical active ingredients.
