NIRLAB Ecosystem

The NIRLAB system consists of closely integrated components for simple, fast and accurate substance analysis.

One-hand held device that scans any narcotic substance - solids, liquids or powders with one push of a button.
Data collection, data analysing, encrypted data management and reporting. Easy Bluetooth pairing of NIRAPP with the NIRLIGHT.
Hosts the NIRBRAIN, NIRCLOUD and NIRAPP in a high protected environment.
Integrates and automates the process for data collection and evaluates the scanned spectral data of the samples using machine learning algorithms.
LAB Results
Are displayed in NIRAPP and NIRCLOUD: Identification of the substance, quantification of the substance.


Professional near-infrared spectroscopy at the touch of a button.

Designed for use in the field as well as lab
NIRLIGHT is compact, rugged and ergonomic. Also suitable for wet and dusty environments.
No Maintenance
NIRLIGHT does not require any maintenance. A piece of cloth with a bit of ethanol can be used to clean the sapphire glass.
Destruction-free Analysis
Little or no sample preparation is needed. No special training is required. Just point, press and scan.
Long Battery Life
Fully charged device lasts 10 hours of continuous use. NIRLIGHT is easily charged by an USB cable.
User-friendly Interface
Easy to use app. Easy to understand analysis results. Easy and encrypted data management and reporting.
LIVE Database Update
Every analysis is immediately updated to the cloud. The reference library grows with every use.
Convenient wire-less usage
The NIRAPP pairs with NIRLIGHT via bluetooth and communicates with servers via WI-FI or 3G.
Easy download
The NIRAPP is easily accessible via browser or can be downloaded from Google Store and App Store.
