The technology behind Q-Interline’s solutions
World class technology
Q-Interline develops analytical solutions and instruments using FT-NIR meaning Near Infrared light combined with advanced mathematics (Fourier transformation) to measure the absorption of energy in a given raw material or product.
With the software, the absorbed energy is transformed to an advanced photo (a spectrum). When a certain amount of photos/spectra – with reference measurements (big data) – has been made the software can use algorithms to predict, with very high precision, the product content of important parameters like protein, fat, dry matter, lactose, salt, fibres, and much more.
Deep dive into the technology with Anders Larsen
In this technology section we explain some of the important technologies we use in our FT-NIR solutions.
You get a deeper understanding of the technology behind the analytical instruments. Some of the information in these pages might be a bit nerdy but well explained in videos with our founder Anders Larsen.
The focus is on four essential themes.
When working with FT-NIR analysis we recommend a balanced focus on all four themes to get the best overall performance.
The four technological pillars
How the analysers of the industry works
Understand the basics of using light for measurement, by getting insights in molecular vibrations and how this translates to measurement of important components.
How the sampling affects the results for good and bad
