ASD - LabSpec 4 Hi-Res Analytical Instrument

The LabSpec® line of laboratory instrumentation offers laboratory-grade performance in a ruggedized, portable design suitable for benchtop analysis or transport to the sample location. LabSpec analytical instrumentation performs rapid, non-destructive materials analysis for qualitative and quantitative applications. The lab analyzer for fast, non-destructive analysis to optimize your workflow .

Superior spectral resolution for sharp feature recognition.

The LabSpec 4 Hi-Res analytical spectrometer is designed for analysis of materials that are characterized by sharp spectral features that may require more resolute spectral data for accurate detection and identification.


The 3 nm VNIR, 6 nm SWIR spectral resolution of the LabSpec 4 Hi-Res analytical instrument provides superior performance across the 350-2500 nm spectral range. The enhanced spectral resolution in the SWIR range (1001- 2500 nm) is particularly useful for detecting and identifying compounds with narrow spectral features in these longer wavelengths such as soil mineralogy, pharmaceuticals, cosmetics, plastics and petrochemicals.


Spectral data with 6 nm SWIR resolution provides a strong foundation for building accurate chemometric calibration models for quantitative and qualitative materials analysis. The spectrometer configuration delivers superior signal throughput and is compatible with all ASD bifurcated probes and lighted accessories.
