The MRS-Technology® (Multi Reflectance Spectroscopy) quantifies product fingerprints by illuminating the sample through an optical window at different wavelengths and detecting/recording for each wavelength several reflected product specific intensities.
Incident light of multiple wavelengths (> 20) in the range of UV-VIS-NIR (can be customized) is transmitted through optical fibers and the optical window into the sample. Detectors are positioned in a way that they receive the reflected and scattered signals originating from different regions of sample in one short measurement.
In this manner, linear scattered (small volume of interest), saturated scattered (large volume of interest) as well as the refracted light intensities are obtained. These comprehensive data allow to determine the specific spectroscopic properties of the given product.
Even more, product parameters, like fat or protein content, particle size and concentration, are calculated automatically by the LUMiFlector® based on product specific pre-calibration using multivariate statistical methods. Due to MRS-Technology®, the LUMiFlector® operation is very flexible and can be adopted for many application fields. Parameters for process control and QC can be determined in less than 20 seconds.
