SPECIM Spectral Imaging has launched what it claims to be the world’s first mobile hyperspectral camera that allows users to analyze material samples anywhere, in seconds.
Called the SPECIM IQ, the company said that industries ranging from food and health, forensic investigation, recycling, art and agriculture, will benefit from the new camera.
SPECIM IQ is an advanced measurement and imaging solution that provides information in an instant for critical decision making and response. The camera and software are said to be easy to adapt and configure for a wide range of applications. It is also suited to the needs of OEM industry for building their own applications for their own clientele.
Hyperspectral imaging, which combines spectroscopy and digital imaging, is regarded by most as the best available measurement technology for demanding measurement applications. By enabling spectral analysis down to the pixel level, it provides unprecedented capabilities for analysing the physical and chemical make-up of both large and small samples.
A founder of SPECIM Spectral Imaging Esko Herrala said: “SPECIM IQ is a truly smart design which enables users to concentrate on problem solving rather than complex data acquisition and processing. The graphical user interface is simple to use, and it provides instant measurement results and insights into the problem without requiring complex mathematics or signal processing skills. This makes SPECIM IQ an ideal OEM product for medical, cosmetics, and other industries.
“We are very excited to present a next-gen device that can help solve many of the world’s pressing problems in the future.”
