Ludwigshafen/Germany — By transforming the established method of near-infrared (NIR) spectroscopy, Trinamix created an accessible, affordable and easy-to-use solution for broad usage beyond common lab applications. The solution enables customers across various markets to make informed decisions right on the spot.

For the past few years, the company has been significantly miniaturising NIR spectroscopy, thus bringing lab power to customers across various industries. Equipped with its Mobile NIR Spectroscopy Solution, they can perform detailed on-the-spot analyses of diverse solids, e.g., to identify different kinds of plastics during recycling or to assess the nutrient value of agricultural raw material. More recently, the company has developed an additional transmission solution to grant detailed insights into what a given organic liquid is made of. The waiting time is reduced to minutes, the company states.

Whether it is people in small inhouse laboratories, at universities or right at production facilities: None of them need any NIR expertise in order to perform and interpret measurements — by using three integrated components: a portable high-performance spectrometer, cloud-based analytics, and an app to instantly show results on a Windows PC or smartphone. The whole lab can easily be set up right where it is needed, taking the complete NIR fingerprint of organic liquids with a wavelength range of 1450 to 2450 nm.

The first customer to benefit from these advantages is BASF’s brand Oase, which offers highly specific solutions for gas treatment. With the chemical group as a strong development partner, Trinamix has successfully tailored their transmission solution to the compositional analysis of Oase gas treatment solutions. The result, so-called Oase digilab, enables customers to continuously monitor the condition of their gas treatment process in real time.
