Near-Infrared Spectroscopy in Chemical Production

| September 10, 2020

Near-infrared spectroscopy’s application in agricultural and food production is well established. Given its proven abilities to monitor chemical composition qualitatively and quantitatively, it is being used inline and online in the production of several organic compounds. Some of the early users of near-infrared spectroscopy in the chemical industry are producers of pharmaceuticals, resins, amino acids,… Continue reading…

Applications of NIRS in Food Authentication

| September 10, 2020

Establishing the authenticity of fresh and processed products is a vital segment of the food sector. Most food is transported long distances and consumers have become more conscious of the quality and health implications of the food they eat. As such, trust in suppliers and personal knowledge of products is being replaced by a growing… Continue reading…

NIR Use in the Pulp Industry

| September 10, 2020

NIR spectroscopy can be used in the pulp industry at many critical points for the qualitative and quantitative analysis of the chemical composition of feedstock and pulp. The precise and rapid estimation methods make predictions of a variety of quality parameters that help in raw material selection, processing, and product control. Several types of desktop… Continue reading…

Consistency is Key: Best Practices for Measurement of Dry Matter & Brix with NIR

| April 28, 2020

This webinar features a popular line of tools from our Felix Instruments side, the F-751 Quality Meters. These tools use a near-infrared spectrometer to gauge the maturity of different types of produce. We have had quite a few people asking about the best ways to scan the produce and how many scans they need to… Continue reading…

Fuzzy Data: Measuring Dry Matter & Brix Non-Destructively in Kiwi [WEBINAR RECORDING]

| December 19, 2019

Q&A What is the correlation between DMC and SSC in relation to the harvest date in Kiwifruit? Different regions have different target DM and target SSC.  These are often set by the local growers’ trade organization or by the packing house and sometimes set differently for fruit bound for domestic sale or export.  General values… Continue reading…

Oxygen in Post Harvest: Monitoring & Control

| November 26, 2019

The rate of post-harvest respiration is one of the primary physiological processes monitored during storage, transport, handling, sorting, and sales to ensure the quality of fresh produce and to cut losses. Measuring levels of oxygen is one of the methods used to assess respiration. There are many methods of gas analysis that are used in… Continue reading…
