trinamiX – Mobile NIR Spectroscopy

TrinamiX makes the invisible visible

TrinamiX has developed proprietary and patented infrared detectors which can see light in a wavelength range of up to 3 μm – a highly relevant region in the infrared spectrum.

TrinamiX IR sensors are very small and have a high detectivity and as such enable the creation of a powerful, miniaturized NIR spectrometer: a ‘lab in the pocket’.

Handheld device

Farm to fork Just point to the object you want to scan and push the button. It’s that easy. The device sends the infrared signal to the object and the light reflects back.

Cloud-based data analysis

The collected information is wirelessly transferred to the trinamiX cloud and processed with our chemometrics algorithms powered by state-of-the-art machine learning technology. For all our applications we carefully prepare an actionable result


Within seconds, the actionable result appears in your app on Android, iOS or Windows. This result helps you to make better-informed decisions.

Feed analysis

Gaining transparency on the quality and nutrient composition of feed is key when addressing livestock requirements. TrinamiX equips feed millers, nutritionists, and farmers with a powerful tool for flexible on-site feed analysis.

  • Quality checks of ingredients and raw materials processed at feed mills and integrators
  • Precise formulation of diets on the farm
  • Constant monitoring of feed and raw materials at farms

Food & Beverage

We all want to eat healthy for ourselves and our families, as well as reducing the amount of wasted food due to spoilage and have overall greater transparency about our groceries.

Addressing these needs, trinamiX gives everyone in the food and beverage industry instantly-accessible information on freshness, ripeness and nutrients of any food sample to help optimize processes and product quality.

This helps to establish more efficient processes, customer satisfaction and to increase profitability and sustainability. The applications include evaluating the quality of incoming highly-perishable goods – such as oils, fish, vegetable and fruits – or while they remain in storage and on supermarket shelves. In addition, trinamiX offers the possibility to evaluate the nutrient level at any time along the production chain.

Pharma & Chemistry

trinamiX provides industrial manufacturers with the possibility to obtain fast and easy answers to their most pressing challenges: product and process safety, obtaining highest efficiency and better sustainability.

trinamiX Mobile Near Infrared (NIR) Spectroscopy Solutions provide information such as type, quality or degree of degradation of solids and liquids. Easy product differentiation helps to prevent counterfeiting. Fast recognition of product mix-ups in the production process enable optimized waste streams and time-effective analyses to prevent production down times.

trinamiX provides all this information via our online cloud and supports faster and better decisions to meet the needs of industrial production and increase overall profitability.
