Specim launches hyperspectral camera to analyse material samples

Specim Spectral Imaging Ltd has launched the world’s first mobile hyperspectral camera, Specim IQ, to analyse material samples in industries ranging from food and health to forensic investigation, recycling, art and agriculture

According to Specim, the advanced measurement and imaging solution aims to provide information in an instant for critical decision making and response.

The camera has been designed for applications in food safety, recycling, health, forestry and other sectors. With the Specim’s application development tool, the camera aims to support the OEM industry for building their own applications for their own clientele.

In the field of agriculture, farmers will be able to screen their crops for infestation and see the results immediately, sometimes a week before any problems are visible to the human eye.

Forensic investigators may screen a crime scene for evidence in few seconds, which, in traditional ways of collecting samples, sending them to the lab and waiting for the results could have taken days or even weeks.

In the art world, immediate forgery detection could become a routine part of the art sales process, thus eliminating dispute and costly court proceedings, said the company.

Hyperspectral imaging, which combines spectroscopy and digital imaging, is one of the leading available measurement technologies for demanding measurement applications. By enabling spectral analysis down to the pixel level, it focuses on providing unprecedented capabilities for analysing the physical and chemical make-up of both large and small samples.

The company added that with Specim IQ, the limitations of complexity and bulky size of the equipment and lack of real time information have been solved.

“The graphical user interface is simple to use, and it provides instant measurement results and insights into the problem without requiring complex mathematics or signal processing skills,” stated Esko Herrala, one of the founders and innovators of Specim.

Specim is one of the world’s leading manufacturers of hyperspectral imaging instruments and systems.
