Near-infrared (NIR) spectrometers and spectroradiometers
Acquired by PANalytical in December 2012, ASD near-infrared (NIR) spectrometers and spectroradiometer products have been available for purchase since 1990. ASD spectrometers are recognized across the globe for providing high performance solutions to mining, industrial and scientific markets. ASD spectrometers deliver quick, accurate and powerful information that helps users improve, simplify, and streamline their research and production processes.
There are three product lines of ASD near-infrared spectrometers:
ASD FieldSpec® portable spectroradiometers
The ASD FieldSpec line of spectroradiometers provides the best spectral resolution available in a portable, ruggedized spectroradiometer. The FieldSpec 4 spectroradiometer is ideal for a wide range of applications, including hyperspectral image interpretation, crops and soils research, ground truthing, photonics, plant physiology, radiometric calibration and much more. The HandHeld 2 spectroradiometer provides the ideal combination of performance, portability, and durability. The recently upgraded performance and durability of the FieldSpec line means researchers can accomplish higher-quality work in less time than ever before.
ASD TerraSpec® mineral analyzers and mineral identifiers
The TerraSpec line of mineral analyzers and mineral identifiers provide rugged, portable and rapid analysis of minerals in the lab or the field. Trusted by the mining industry for more than a decade, mineral geologists appreciate the TerraSpec Halo mineral identifier’s portability and ability to rapidly identify key minerals in a non-destructive manner. Mine operators can also speed mineral exploration, production and ore analysis with a TerraSpec 4 mineral analyzer.
ASD LabSpec® bench analyzers
For researchers looking for portable analytical instrumentation that provides research-grade performance, consider the Labspec line of laboratory instrumentation. Suitable for transport to the sample location, LabSpec analytical instrumentation performs rapid, non-destructive materials analysis for qualitative and quantitative applications.
