How It Works

Advanced Sample Management and Reporting

The SpectraStar™ XT Series NIR Analyzers utilize scanning monochromator technology for the highest signal quality available. These systems utilize near-infrared light and precisely measure absorbance at each wavelength. Robust calibrations transform this spectral information into multiple constituent values that cannot be quantified through visual inspection. These systems are designed for flexibility, ease of use, and speed, as samples can be analyzed in less than one minute.

  1. Select or verify your product type
  2. Fill your sample cup and place on the instrument
  3. Press start and your results are displayed in about 30 seconds
