The MATRIX-I is a rugged FT-NIR spectrometer designed for QA/QC analysis. The instrument comes equipped with an integrating sphere. This permits fast and easy analysis using the diffuse reflectance technique. Samples can be measured directly in their containers or poured into standard cups. This method is ideal for measuring large amounts of materials and is particularly useful for analyzing inhomogeneous samples or large particle size items such as grains or seeds.
Accurate high-resolution results in seconds
Easy operation and maintenance
Multiple components per measurement
Support for industry standard communication protocols
Embedded in a compact and rugged housing
Direct calibration transfer to and from all existing Bruker Optics NIR spectrometers
RockSolid™ interferometer for permanently aligned optics and insensitivity to vibrations
Possibility of explosion protection according to ATEX
Fully automated test routines for validation according to cGMP (OQ, PQ)
21 CFR Part 11 and validation according to EU-, JP- and US-Pharmacopeia
Applications for your Quality Control
The MATRIX-I with its integrating sphere sampling is ideal for your daily QA/QC work.
Areas of Applications:
Grain and oil seed analysis: moisture, protein, oil, starch and fatty acid profile.
Milk and dairy analysis: moisture, fat, protein and dry matter.
Food and feed analysis: protein, starch, fat, moisture, fiber and ash.
Fuel ethanol analysis: fermentation profiling.
Tobacco analysis: leaf quality and process verifications of tobacco blends.
Pharmaceutical analysis: raw material ID, blend uniformity, blend ratio, drying process monitoring.
Polymer lab and online analysis: additives, melt flow index, residual monomer, density and viscosity.
The permanently aligned RocksolidTM interferometer is a unique patented component which yields over 20% higher throughput than ordinary interferometer design. It benefits from dual retro reflection cube corner mirrors and wear-free pivot mechanism located in the center of mass, which ensures exceptional stability and reliability even in harsh environment. With its patented design, the elimination of mirror tilt optically and prevention of mirror shear mechanically is reached.
No need of standby mode to protect the bearing
No need of recalibration after movement
No wearing of mechanical bearing, no spare parts, minimization of service costs
