The Visum Palm™ handheld NIR analyzer features a powerful spectrophotometer, a 10 mm diameter measurement area, 256 spectral channels, and an illumination and light collection system that together allow you to obtain more chemical information from each sample and mitigate the heterogeneities present in the real world. It is a real-time, non-destructive analysis tool that allows optimisation of quality control and processes without having to resort to traditional laboratory techniques. Thanks to the AI built into the external Visum Master™ software, the user can develop and edit their own calibrations or NIRS methods of identification, classification or quantification without technical knowledge of spectroscopy, making the Visum Palm™ handheld NIR analyzer an open system for current and future analysis needs with complete end-user autonomy. Among the most popular applications of the Visum Palm™ handheld NIR analyzer are the identification of raw materials in the pharmaceutical industry (RMID), moisture or LoD analysis, the identification of plastics and textiles, analysis of different parameters in food, analysis of grains, cereals and forages, quantitative measurements of pharmaceutical API's, analysis of homogeneity, drying, among many specific applications in different materials, products and industries.

Why choose the handheld NIR analyzer Visum Palm™?

  • 10 mm measuring area and a powerful illumination system for more chemical information of each sample and higher accuracy and repeatability of each analysis.
  • It is stand-alone, has an integrated computer and touch screen and does not need to be connected to other electronic devices.
  • The handheld NIR analyzer has a spectral resolution of 3 nm (256 channels), twice as high as other similar analyzers on the market or three times better than other low-cost NIR analyzers (nm ↓ = spectral resolution ↑).
  • Its use does not require skilled operators.
  • It can measure through transparent plastic bags and transparent glass containers.
  • It has a support base to use the device in benchtop mode.
  • Specific sample holders for solids and liquids.
  • Through the Visum Master™ software for PC, it allows the development of calibrations, models and automated methods, verifications, validations and reports, becoming a facilitator in the day-to-day work of the operator or analyst.
