We are excited to announce the launch of our new hyperspectral imaging laboratory in Thailand, equipped with the latest hyperspectral technologies to help identify and sort objects with different chemical compositions. Our laboratory offers the opportunity for our clients to experience the capabilities of our push-broom hyperspectral cameras Specim IQ, Specim FX10, and FX17 for hyperspectral imaging.

What is Hyperspectral Imaging?

Hyperspectral imaging is a technique that captures both spatial and spectral data from an object, allowing us to see both its physical structure and chemical composition. Over the years, hyperspectral imaging has become an extremely useful tool in various industries, such as agriculture, food, pharmaceuticals, environmental monitoring, etc.

Our Capabilities

Our laboratory is equipped with the push-broom hyperspectral camera Specim IQ that provides high-quality spectral data in a portable and easy-to-use package, making it an ideal tool for researchers, scientists, and professionals in various fields, including agriculture, food, medical diagnosis, art conservation, etc. Our laboratory also has the hyperspectral camera Specim FX10 and FX17, which can be used for laboratory analysis and industrial machine vision applications like precision agriculture, food inspection, etc.

Applications of Hyperspectral Imaging

The ability to identify and sort objects with different chemical compositions makes hyperspectral imaging a very versatile tool across many industries. In agriculture, it can be used to analyze the health of plants or identify areas of the field that need more nutrients or water. In pharmaceuticals, it can help in analyzing the chemical composition of drugs, ensuring they are of high quality. In the food industry, it can be used to evaluate the quality of food products, such as ripeness and freshness, including detecting contaminants or foreign objects.
