We make routine inspections an everyday occurrence.
Particularly in security-sensitive sectors, routine inspections of source substances and materials is mandatory. Elaborate testing procedures are indispensable when the addition of undesired by-products have to be excluded in production. With our analysis devices, the testing of many liquid, semi-solid and solid substances can be integrated into process chains. Scanning methods, such as near-infrared spectroscopy, help to measure critical parameters like concentrations of fat, protein or water. It can be continuously and accurately tested to the millisecond - already during the production process.
HiperScan - a success story since 2006
In many industries such as: pharmaceuticals, medicine, agriculture, the food industry, waste disposal, and the packaging & plastics industry, visual testing methods have already been established for quality analysis and process monitoring. Previously however, the frequently high implementation costs prevented broader usage of NIR spectroscopy (NIRS). Thanks to intensive research on the usage of micro-scan systems, in 2004, the completely new and considerably cost-effective scanning grating spectrometer (SGS) was developed.
This laid the foundation stone for HiperScan GmbH, a company which branched off from the Frauenhofer Institute for Photonic Microsystems Dresden in 2006. Today, as a company, our objective is to continue driving the development of high-grade technologies and applications for the analysis of substances in the near infrared range (NIR). For this purpose, we want to continue developing the advantages of NIR spectroscopy, in order to establish it for mass application in the near future. Because if smaller companies can also profit from the method, not only does the quality of the finished product increase, but NIRS itself will be raised to a higher level of quality.
