The MultiScan series of analysers consist of the following components; Lamp, Sample Compartment, Optics, Detector. Light from the lamp, passes through a sample of grains or oil seeds. The light bounces off the surfaces of the grains or oil seeds and propagates through the sample until it reaches the other side.

The emerging light is focused into the slit of a flat field spectrograph that separates the light into its individual frequencies, across the wavelength range from 720-1100nm. The separated light is then directed onto a silicon photo diode array detector. This array detector measures the intensity of the light at each frequency to produce what is called the NIT spectrum of the sample. Within this region of the electromagnetic spectrum, N-H (protein), C-H (fats and oils) and O-H (water) and C-O-H (carbohydrates) absorb NIR light at specific wavelengths. The NIT spectrum contains information about the concentration of these components. A calibration model, stored in the analyser’s memory, converts this information to % concentration for each component
