"With our eight channel spectrometer, we can put eight different samples to do the same test, or one sample in eight different wells to do eight different tests.
HyperFlux PRO Plus uses an optimized HTVS technology to provide 10x the throughput of other process Raman spectrometers and we hope to show visitors at the event just how much they can achieve with Tornado compared with their existing Raman spectrometers," states Aaron Weinroth, Chief Marketing Officer at Tornado Spectral Systems.
Although the proposed spectrometer covers a spectral range in the VIS regime, it may not be directly competitive with commercial interferometric spectrometers, because they typically span the full UV-VIS or VIS-NIR spectrum.
According to the reader survey, issues researchers have identified with existing spectrometers include the high cost of repairs and maintenance of older systems (38% of respondents), out-dated systems lacking the characteristics and amenities of new systems (24%), availability and cost of service for older systems (20%) and the reliability of these older systems as well (20%).
Abstract The equipment described in the paper consists of a portable optoelectronic structure meant to determine in situ the element chemical composition, metallic material of a welding seam, basic metallic material welded, metallic walls of plasma or gas cutting joint, material welded or cut by laser, some charges of melted steel as well as some other high energy processes accompanied by emission of light electromagnetic radiation, using exactly the high energy radiation in the spectrometer analysis of these heat sources.
Available in both UV (200-1100 nm) and Vis-NIR (400-2500 nm) versions, the SteadiQ interfaces directly with Ocean Optics' USB2000+, USB4000, HR2000+, HR4000, Maya2000, Maya2000 Pro, QE65000, and NIRQuest spectrometers. In extreme hot or extreme cold conditions, the unit operates independently from outside temperatures.

However, as discussed by Preston (2001), much of this discussion is moot, because most soil scientists have very limited access to NMR spectrometers, and often lack the resources to implement sophisticated techniques.
