Helping industries to improve their quality control and process standardization.
LAB TO LINE FOR QUALITY 4.0
We combine Photonics and AI to develop and integrate Spectroscopy-based analyzers -NIR- and turnkey solutions into manufacturing lines (Lab2Line) and right along the value chain (Lab2Chain).
Our products and solutions combine Photonics technologies (NIR Spectroscopy) and AI (chemometrics/Machine Learning, data modelling and software). Our multidisciplinary skills in both engineering and science allow us to design custom systems that are aligned with specific industry monitoring needs.
Turnkey solutions for the food, pharma, chemical and bio-based industries. We deliver end-to-end solutions: from Analysis and Design to Development and Commissioning.

We develop devices to improve the monitoring of production processes in a wide variety of sectors.
Portable NIR analyser for real-time chemical composition determination. Compact and handy. Robust and designed for industrial environments.
Industrial NIR analyser designed for operation in harsh industrial environments and adapted to several types of geometries, unit operations and unit process machinery.
In-line NIR Hyperspectral Imaging analyser that can be integrated into any type of production line for real-time monitoring of product quality when the spatial information is relevant.
Our Visum HPR-S1 is an industrial portable NIR Hyperspectral Imaging analyser ready to be integrated in industrial production lines for real-time monitoring.
Product quality depends not only on a proven recipe and on an optimized process, but also on changing circumstances and dynamic variables; this is why it is easy to lose control of the process. Our NIR and HSI devices enable the digitisation of industrial processes in order to obtain reliable and objective information about Critical Quality Attributes and Critical Process Parameters in a matter of seconds in order to optimise process efficiency, improve quality inspection and standardise production processes.
Powders: flour, cocoa, etc.
Based on Process Analytical Technology (PAT), our VISUM devices are used for designing, analysing and controlling pharmaceutical manufacturing processes through the measurement of critical quality and performance attributes of raw and processed materials to ensure final product quality, reducing over-processing, enhancing efficiency and minimising waste.
Our NIR or HSI devices enable the digitisation of different industrial processes- and in particular new Bio-Circular economy processes that are subject to high variability- in order to obtain real-time, reliable and objective information about Critical Quality Attributes and Critical Process Parameters in order to optimise process efficiency, improve quality inspection and standardise production processes. The VISUM family is conceptualized to be flexible and adaptable to the needs of our clients.
Film Quality Control
WHAT OUR CLIENTS SAY ABOUT US
The use of the VISUM Palm represents a huge revolution in terms of keeping the quality of the processes under control. It brings us real-time and reliable information and cost-saving data about total acidity and the content of the polar components in the frying oil of the production line. VISUM Palm also gives us useful data to determine the quality of fried products, like moisture and fat percentages. This functionality helps to save on arduous lab tasks and allows our employees to focus on other high value-added duties. The return on investment is clear and well founded.
Scientific Research Manager at EUROPASTRY, S.A.
At Almirall, we are committed to quality, innovation and the continuous improvement to make our processes more effective and efficient. For this reason, last year we incorporated into our quality control laboratory the new VISUM Palm analyzer, intended, in our case, for the online determination of different quality parameters in multiple products. Thanks to the excellent communication between IRIS Technology Solutions and Almirall, the process of developing the Machine Learning models and qualifying the device for our technical requirements has been fluid and agile. At Almirall, we know that this is only the first step on a prosperous path together with IRIS towards the implementation of other PAT solutions, framed in our commitment to the Industry 4.0 paradigm.

All and all, VISUM Palm is a solid piece of equipment that is portable, user-friendly and has a lot of potential. We and Prof Elliott’s team are working in the area of food authenticity and vegetable oil speciation for a number of years now and looking for opportunities to make the analysis fast, portable and cost-effective. With the right application the VisumPalm ticks all the boxes.

Under the framework of the EU funded H2020 project, Agrimax, in Nofima we have been testing the feasibility of selected rapid and non-destructive sensors for monitoring and controlling different extraction processes. Testing the dry matter content in cutin paste monitoring, an expensive and high-resolution lab instrument from a leading brand has been compared with the hand-held VISUM Palm, yielding strikingly similar results. While both systems were capable of performing the analysis with the same level of accuracy, the VISUM PALM offers the added advantage of measuring on a quite small spot, thereby enabling high-quality spectra to also be obtained from hard and bulk samples.
