NIRAPP is our mobile App for Android and iOS and displays the results within seconds.

It is highly customizable and user friendly and all the needed features and functions you want to find in a mobile Lab are already on board.

In this example, we have used the FIELDLAB solution for the qualification and quantification of illicit substances in various forms like powders, flowers, liquids, pills. Cuttinga gents and precursors are also identified in the same analysis process.

The result in the NIRAPP shows: 

  1. The measured spectrum of questioned substance

  2. Identification of the substance

  3. Quantification of the substance

  4. Quantification of further substances (if it’s the case)

  5. Confidence level

FIELDLAB is a powerful tool for on-site analysis of any substance or material. Our solutions are build to enter the mass markets and it is proven to deliver outstanding results.
