Specim IQ drastically moves the dial on hyperspectral imaging that up to now demanded the use of heavy instrumentation and lag time, as it could take hours to days before the processing of results. Not only is the IQ hyperspectral imaging camera portable, but it is an all-in-one solution that delivers imaging and results in a single device—in an instant. Weighing in at a light 1.3 kg with a generous built in 4.3” touchscreen display, the camera contains a chargeable battery and memory card for storing captured data, putting an end to the lugging of cumbersome equipment and waiting time that once typified hyperspectral imaging.

The camera-to-go makes it simple to analyze a specimen in its environment rather than trying to move it to a lab for hyperspectral scanning, especially important in the case of plants and vegetation analysis. Researchers particularly appreciate the fact that right inside the camera is a processing software which allows full spectral analysis and classification. Integrated control and data processing means a classification scheme can be applied as good/bad decision instantly, making a quick and easy job of substance analysis on the spot, with no compromise to data quality.
