Galaxy Scientific’s new NF2000 is designed from the ground up to offer the industry a new kind of NIR analysis solution. A solution that brings together the portability required to move NIR analysis closer to point-of-need, combined with unmatched spectroscopic performance for the fastest and most accurate results.
Introducing the Analytical Solutions for Food
This flyer lists the parameters measured using FT-NIR technology for multiple food applications such as snack food, dairy, edible oils, meat, and more. Multiple parameters’ measurements are done simultaneously and in less than 30 seconds.

Galaxy Scientific, a manufacturer of FT-NIR instrumentation for industrial use, is pleased to offer a Chart of Near-Infrared Absorption Bands in printed poster or PDF format.
This chart shows the wavenumber and wavelength ranges corresponding to common NIR absorbance peaks used in optical spectroscopy. The chart covers the optical range of 4000 cm-1 to 14000 cm-1 (or 2500 nm to 700 nm) and shows the combination bands as well as first, second, and third overtones for common functional groups. The functional groups covered include the following: CH, CH2, CH3, CHO, NH2, OH, ArOh, ArCH, CONH2, and H2O. Use these common functional groups to look up where to expect near-infrared absorptions in edible oils, polymers, sugars, and other organic materials.
If you would like a printed version of this poster to hang on your lab, office, or conference room wall, please simply fill out the form below and click send. Sorry, but we can only offer this to people in the USA and Canada.

Galaxy Scientific’s App Note: Detecting Counterfeit Drugs Using FT-NIR
AZo Materials has published the latest application note from Galaxy Scientific
A suitable technology is needed to quickly, easily, and inexpensively screen medical drugs to detect fake products and poor quality ingredients. Traditional wet chemical or chromatographic methods cannot be used as fast screening tools as they are time-consuming and require expertise in sample preparation and handling. However, near-infrared (NIR) spectroscopy is rapid, non-destructive, and can be used to differentiate and quantify organic compounds. With no complex sample preparation, NIR spectroscopy can be extremely inexpensive per sample. NIR spectroscopy can also differentiate between generic formulations that are sold as brand name drugs. The most impressive example of using NIR spectroscopy as a counterfeit drug screening tool comes from the People’s Republic of China. Researchers at China’s National Institutes for Food and Drug Control (NIFDC) have equipped 200 vans with FT-NIR spectrometers turning them into mobile labs for counterfeit drug testing.
Galaxy Scientific will be exhibiting FT-NIR Instrumentation at PITTCON 2017
