High Performance Portable Near Infrared Spectrometers

Our Focus


Galaxy Scientific’s high performance FT-NIR technology offers significant advantages such as high spectral resolution, best-in-class signal-to-noise ratio, inherently stable wavelength accuracy, and full spectral range. All models in the QuasIR™ product line utilize Galaxy’s PermAlignTM Fourier Transform Technology, taking FT-NIR to the next level by offering incredibly high performance in a small, portable design. Benefits include permanent interferometer alignment, small & lightweight design, and robust field operation


Galaxy Scientific has created the hardware and software to make chemical analysis accessible to everyone. The intuitive Spectral Sage™ Software combines the ease-of-use for everyday analysis with feature-rich functions for advanced method developers. Our Automatic Performance Testing Unit provides an easy and automated way to monitor your instrument’s performance


We designed our products to be compact, precise and economical. Our QuasIR™ Series uses a temperature stabilized solid-state laser that offers a compact configuration, excellent wavelength stability, and a typical lifetime of over 10 years. In addition, our units use a special compact lamp that offers a typical lifetime of 20,000 hours and an inexpensive replacement cost. Galaxy Scientific’s QuasIR™ has a wear-free interferometer drive that comes with a 10-year warranty and user replaceable desiccant


The QuasIR™ Series spectrometer combines portability and performance to get the results you need, where and when you need them. Our robust and compact design can be taken outside the lab to the point-of-need. Each is lightweight and quickly attaches to a laptop or tablet computer, can operate from a variety of power sources, and has a rugged design that ensures it can reach be moved without damage.


Galaxy Scientific

is specialized in the development and marketing of innovative high performance portable analytical instrumentation. Our passion is innovation and our mission is to develop a new high performance portable platform to tackle critical analytical problems around the world.

  • Our Technology

    We have developed a new generation of high performance field portable platforms which combine next generation optics with advanced software algorithms providing breakthrough solutions to the most challenging point-of-need applications. Samples can then be analyzed in the field, rather than be taken off site to separate laboratories.

  • Our Facility

    We are in a 6,000 sq. ft. office located in Nashua, NH and equipped with full research and development capabilities including development laboratories, a rapid-turn prototype machine shop and test facilities. Complete manufacturing operations include inventory management, assembly, loading dock and packaging, as well as a multi-media and marketing generation studio

  • Our Products

    Portability is the key aspect of Galaxy Scientific’s products. While our products are suitable for laboratory use, the maximum benefit is fully realized when our products are used in the field. We offer a unique combination of portability and performance, which offers our customers rapid field analysis for even the most demanding applications. We provide analysis solutions for Food & Agriculture, Pharmaceutical and BioPharmaceutical manufacturing and authentication, Polymer & Chemical, Energy, and Environmental sectors.
