Fundamentals of NIR Spectroscopy for Lab Systems

The Fundamentals of NIR Spectroscopy is three-day in-depth course guiding your through NIR theory, instrumentation and chemometrics. This course covers NIR model development and validation with Vision chemometric software and advanced data collection, management and instrument management with Vision Air. Hands-on exercises and Q&A sessions help answer your key learning needs.

Who should attend?

Operators of Metrohm NIR benchtop systems, lab managers and supervisors, anyone desiring a deeper knowledge of use and function of Metrohm NIR systems.

Prerequisites:

None

What knowledge will you leave with?  

A fundamental understanding of how qualitative and quantitative NIR analysis works, practice in creating models and libraries and the ability to manage large data sets.
