Galaxy Scientific has introduced the QuasIR 3000 portable FT-NIR spectrometer. It uses an integrating sphere for large area sampling, and the “PermAlign” optical design maintains alignment and performance under routine and extreme conditions. Other features include: Automatic Performance Testing Unit, which provides an automated validation process for routine use workflow with reduced documentation burden. A 25-mm sampling area to produce uniform sampling and more reproducible results. Optional sample spinner to further increase the sampling area, and which holds sampling cups up to 98 mm diameter. Spectral Sage software suite combines the ease-of-use needed for every day analysis with functions for advanced method developers. The instrument weighs 8.5 kg and measures 44.5 × 23 × 14 cm. The wavelength range is 785–2500 nm with a resolution of >0.78 nm at 1392 nm.
