Mineral exploration made more efficient
Analytical Spectral Devices (ASD) has launched a state-of-the-art portable mineral spectrometer that uses near-infrared (NIR) technology. This enables real-time readings in the field, making the discovery process fast and economical.
The TerraSpec mineral analyzer is a high-resolution, wide-wavelength spectrometer that uses NIR reflectance to measure spectral signatures and determine the materials and minerals present in a particular section of earth. It allows for rapid, non-contact, non-destructive sampling of materials in a cost-effective, easy-to-implement platform, offering a practical alternative to time-consuming and costly wet-chemical and chromatographic techniques.
Based in Boulder, Colo., ASD provides reliable, high-performance analytical instrumentation solutions to industrial professionals, analytical researchers and remote sensing scientists. For more information, phone (303) 444-6522 or visit www.asdi.com.
