Unity Scientific has introduced the SpectraStar XT series of NIR spectrometers, adding many new technologies and components to the SpectraStar line. True Alignment Spectroscopy (TAS) is an instrument calibration and monitoring system for instrument calibration and validation. UScan routine operation software has a graphical, touchscreen drive interface for intuitive operation. There are a new controller board, InGaAs dectector, grating drive motor and high-resolution encoder. There are models covering wavelength ranges between and up to 680–2600 nm. Ready-to-use pre-calibrated analysers are also available for many applications.
