How Near-Infrared Spectroscopy Helps Reduce Costs up to 90% in the QC Laboratory

LIVE Date:Tuesday, May 5, 2020

Start Time:11:00 AM EDT

Duration:60 minutes


Near-infrared spectroscopy (NIRS) offers significant advantages over conventional approaches. Analysis is non-destructive, simple to use, and requires little or no sample preparation. In addition, time to result is short – multiple parameters such as moisture, viscosity and hydroxyl value can be determined and displayed in less than one minute.

In this webinar, Dr. Nicolas Rühl and Andreas Agerer from Metrohm AG will introduce this fascinating technology and discuss its key benefits. They will also provide implementation guidelines and review several applications from the chemical, petrochemical, and polymer industries.

Key learning objectives:
  • Understanding NIRS: How does it work?
  • Key benefits and limitations
  • How to implement this technology in accordance with ASTM E1655
  • Real-world applications for NIRS
