BUCHI NIRMaster: Meat and Meat Products Quality Control and Analysis

Buchi NIRMaster FT-NIR Spectrometer

Buchi NIRMaster FT-NIR Spectrometer

Production of meat products is still based on a high degree of trust. To ensure high quality and legislation fulfillments it is very important to have access to accurate and meaningful quality parameters. Understanding customer needs in the meat industry, BUCHI has designed the first standalone FT-NIR Spectrometer specifi cally for that industry – the NIRMaster™. Please visit http://www.mybuchi.com  for information on our NIRSolutions and to request our NIR brochure concerning meat and meat products.


Get more analysis information, higher productivity, higher quality and better understanding in meat production with polarization Fourier-Transform Near-Infrared Spectroscopy (FT-NIRS). Rapidly control the quality and nutritional facts of your meat products using BUCHI NIRSolutions. The NIRMaster™ is the first dedicated FT-NIR standalone spectrometer. Its easy-clean design and high ingress protection (IP) meet the specific needs for at-line analysis in meat production.


Advantages of the NIRMaster FT-NIR Spectrometer include:

1. Easy-clean design increases food safety day by day
The hygienic easy-clean design and high ingress protection (IP) support your routine work in harsh environments. The NIRMaster™ is available in food-grade PMMA housing or stainless steel housing.

2. Polarization FT-NIR reduces costs
The modern and robust NIRMaster™ based on fast and precise polarization FT-NIR technology, provides accurate and reliable results for multiple parameters simultaneously. Improve your production process with this fast and durable system.

3. Faster results speed up your decisions
The NIRMaster™ with its built in PC, preinstalled software and quick-start calibrations can be quickly set up and put into operation. With FT-NIR you can analyze your samples within seconds.

4. Reliable hardware for reliable business
The NIRMaster™ is supported by a twin-lamp safeguard for uninterrupted operation even in cases of lamp failure. Based on robust and accurate polarization technology it is more shock resistant than any other FT-NIR.

5. Easy-operation for a lean workflow
The NIRWare Operator is the easy to use and ergonomic software interface which can be tailored to your specific needs. Inputs are collected easily and the analysis results are displayed in an optimal way. With an optional touch screen and robust accessories, like a barcode scanner or the easy-spin drive, efficiency in daily work can be improved even more.

6. Quick-start calibrations to gain time
In cooperation with many of BUCHI’s long-term customers we have concentrated data and experience in our pre-calibrations. These powerful quick-start calibrations enable you to effi ciently analyze a broad range of your sample constituents.

7. Easy calibration transfer preserves competence
BUCHI NIR spectrometers are identical by design. Spectra and calibrations can be exchanged between laboratory and production units – without any calibration standardization. Furthermore, your
existing calibrations, even data from other suppliers, can be transferred easily to your new BUCHI FT-NIR spectrometer.

8. NIRCal creates better performance
Use the powerful NIRCal software to evaluate your production data. Keep an eye on what is going on at your sites. For evaluating or updating a calibration NIRCal is the ideal tool. The patented Calibration Wizard and the comprehensive NIRCal Toolbox support even unexperienced users building up powerful calibrations.

9. NIR Networking for local and global control
For local data handling the LIMS interface connects your BUCHI NIR to laboratory information or enterprise resource planning software using standard interchange formats. For global players NIRAnywhere is the comprehensive network management tool. Headquarters can automatically backup data and update applications by remote connection. You gain full access and transparency to all your production and QC relevant data.
