microPHAZIR Handheld NIR Spectrometer

The microPHAZIR (formerly known as Polychromix) is a handheld NIR material analyser designed for rapid, non-destructive, on-the-spot analysis. Near Infrared (NIR) has never been this portable, powerful, and easy. Just select the application, point and shoot, and have results in seconds. Engineered by the leaders in portable NIR to satisfy the both non-experts and specialists requirements. Our microPHAZIR unleashes the power of NIR spectroscopy enabling real time, on-site analysis with minimal training.
