Spectrometer Module Qmix Lambda

Qmix Lambda

With an integrated Light Source

The Qmix Lambda spectrometer module combines a high-quality online spectrometer for VIS and NIR applications with a flow-measuring cell (z-cell) in a Qmix-compatible housing. Depending on its configuration, this spectrometer is suitable for wavelengths ranging from 350-800 nm or 650-1100 nm. The LED light source is integrated in the module. You can adjust the brightness using a turning knob on the device. The LED attachment can be exchanged very easily, enabling you to perfectly adapt the wavelength of the emitted light to your application.

The module offers a complete spectral analysis with very little scattered light interference and a high signal-to-noise ratio on an extremely small footprint. Despite its compact dimensions, the optical resolution, stability and sensitivity of this spectrometer are comparable or even superior to the performance provided by larger and more expensive devices.


Qmix Lambda - Flow-Measurement Cell (Z-cell)

Flow-Measurement Cell (Z-cell)

With variable Length

The module features a flow-measurement cell (z-cell) of variable length to enable an adaptation to media of different optical density. The measurement cell works in any flow direction, making it possible to use both connectors as intakes or outlets.

QmixElements Spectroscopy Plugin

QmixElements Spectroscopy Plugin

For all Qmix Lambda Spectrometer Modules

The QmixElements spectroscopy plugin is our solution for an optimal integration of Qmix Lambda spectrometer modules into the QmixElements software suite. This software lets you set parameters, such as integration time, filters, baseline correction, etc.). The integrated peak-detection feature automatically marks identified peaks in the spectrum. Recorded spectrums can be exported as images or in the form of many other file formats, such as Excel-compatible CSV files.


Spectroscopy plugin script functions

Automating and Synchronizing Recorded Spectrums

With Spectroscopy Script Functions

Like all other CETONI devices, Qmix Lambda spectrometer modules can be integrated into the QmixElements scripting system, using the respective script functions. This lets you automate the recording of spectral data, synchronize them with other devices or processes or trigger spectral recording in case of certain events. Simply drag and drop the spectroscopy function into your program and configure all of the necessary parameters using the graphical interface – and your automatic script-recording system is ready to go.


Spectroscopy online analysis

Conducting Online Analyses

Measuring, Calculating, Monitoring

The spectroscopy plugin contains a selection of analysis functions for online-analysis of recorded spectrums. You can create any number of analysis channels for each spectrometer. As an example, the integration function lets you calculate the intensity across the entire bandwidth of a spectrum, while simultaneously determining intensity at different wavelengths.

For each analysis a new analysis channel will be created in the I/O channel list. This channel works like a regular, analog input channel and you can use it and read it like any other analog input in the software and the script system.


Analyze IQ model import in QmixElements

Analyze IQ Chemometrics Add-On

Sophisticated chemometric analyses - online and in real time

The new Chemometrics Add-On, powered by Analyze IQ technology, brings sophisticated chemometric capabilities to the QmixElements software. Analyze IQ technology allows accurate analysis of spectroscopic data in realm time. Analyze IQ Lab software allows you to quickly and reliably create, evaluate and refine sophisticated models.

These models can then be imported into the QmixElements software for real-time analysis of recorded spectroscopy data. You simply create a chemometric analysis channel, assign an analysis model to the channel and then immediately have an analysis channel that continuously analyzes the recorded spectra. This allows you to detect the presence of a substance or its concentration in a mixture in real time, record it or react to it in the script.


QmixElements Software

QmixElements Software

Laboratory automation platform

The QmixElements software is a comprehensive, plugin-based, modular software solution for the control of all cetoni devices via a common graphical user interface. The software consists of a core that provides the basic features and services, such as the application window, the event log or the tool bar.


OceanView Software

High-end spectroscopy software for real-time spectral recording and analysis

Our QmixLambda modules are compatible with the OceanView software from Ocean Optics. If you do not need to synchronize the spectra recording and analysis with other processes and events in the QmixElements software, this external application is a suitable alternative or addition to the QmixElements Spectroscopy Plugin. The OceanView software is an extremely powerful and comprehensive software package for recording and analyzing spectral data.
