About HiperScan Exit

HiperScan GmbH was founded in 2006 as a spin-off of the Dresdner Fraunhofer Institute for Photonic Microsystems (IPMS). The innovative scanning grating technology developed at the IPMS forms the basis for the near-infrared (NIR) spectrometer developed by HiperScan. The analytical systems make it possible to significantly reduce investment costs to make NIR-analytics affordable even to small companies. Today, the company HiperScan stands for high-quality technologies to quickly analyse nutrition facts of processed meat and fish and to reliably qualify pharmaceutical raw materials. So, the product Apo-Ident has been tailored for the safe and easy identification of compounding substances in pharmacies.

HiperScan GmbH sets new standards in near infrared spectroscopy (NIR) analytic.

A revolution in the near infrared spectroscopy (NIR) is done by the implementation of an innovative micro scanner technology. This new technology is based on a microchip which deflects light in a reproducible manner. The already field tested and forward-looking base technology enables the fabrication of rather small, extremely rugged and very fast near-infrared spectrometers. This allows new analytical processes in food- and process analytics and quality control. As well the identification of
