Detection of fraudulent fish using NIR spectroscopy and Chemometrics
The demand for consumption of fish has increased significantly in recent years due to the desire of consumers to eat healthier food. The market has responded by producing a huge variety of fresh and processed fish products. As a result, the fraudulent substitution of lower grade fish for higher grade...
Comparing Hyperspectral Imaging and Near IR spectroscopy for detection of Salmonella and other bacteria in Milk, Juice and Poultry
Milk is rich in its ingredients and contains fat, protein minerals, vitamins, carbohydrates and tens of thousands of other ingredients. It is a perfect environment for bacterial cultures such as Salmonella to develop due its rich nutritional nature. Unprocessed milk that has not been heat treated or pasteurized can host...
Near Infrared measurement of Cannabis Potency
With the legalization of cannabis in Canada and in many US states, the need to quantify potency of cannabis has become more urgent. If the cannabis is used for medicinal purposes, CBD needs to be measured. On the other hand for recreational purposes, THC needs to be measured. It is...
Agricultural health monitoring and soil monitoring using Near IR spectroscopy
When agricultural health monitoring is mentioned, several aspects needs to be considered. One main aspect is the quality of the vegetable leaf itself even if the plant is producing fruits. One has to monitor the total nitrogen content and moisture level in the leaf itself. Deficiency in nitrogen is reversible...
Comparing the NIR spectroscopic method withFTIR/FT-NIR
* Comparing the NIR spectroscopic method with FTIR/FT-NIR * ** The goal of this article is to compare the near IR spectroscopic technique with FT-IR  and FT-NIR methods. Molecular spectroscopy is the study of interaction of Electromagnetic waves with matter. Molecular bonds are capable of rotation and vibration which include...
