Expertise in NIR applications

For more than 80 years, PerkinElmer has been providing leading spectroscopy instrumentation and dedicated NIR analyzers for the feed and agricultural industries. With NIR specialist teams around the globe, we're ready to support you with predeveloped as well as custom calibrations. We can also support calibrations provided by external third-party suppliers or developed by users themselves.

The FT 9700 analyzer is also capable of using calibrations based on transferred data from other brand NIR systems using full-wavelength NIR region, FT-NIR, or dispersive scanning monochromator instruments. This means that the NIR databases and calibrations do not have to be recreated when using the new FT 9700 NIR platform.
