Ruggedness and portability are the key aspects of Galaxy Scientific’s near infrared analyzers. While our FT-NIR spectrometers are suitable for laboratory use, they can also be taken into the field or near the manufacturing line. We do not sacrifice performance, utilizing the full benefit of FT-NIR spectroscopy. Our QuasIR™ family of NIR analyzers uses Fourier Transform Near Infrared (FT-NIR) technology based on novel PermAlign™ optics to ensure unmatched instrument accuracy and repeatability, even under extreme conditions.  

Historically, transferring NIR calibrations from one Near Infrared analyzer to another has been a challenging task. One of the greatest advantages of FT-NIR spectroscopy is direct calibration transfer. NIR calibration can easily be transferred from one FT-NIR spectrometer to another even if it is not the same model or made by the same manufacturer.

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 utilize Galaxy’s PermAlign™ Fourier Transform Technology, taking near-infrared instrumentation to the next level by offering incredibly high-performance measurements in a small, portable design. Benefits include permanent interferometer alignment, small & lightweight design, and robust field operation.

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 has created the hardware and software to make chemical analysis accessible to everyone.  The intuitive Spectral Sage™ Software combines the ease-of-use needed 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 spectrometers 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.
