In Research

Hyperspectral imaging is used increasingly in many research areas, such as life sciences, vegetation research, forensics, food analysis, and mineral research. In each application area the hyperspectral scanner is used to to identify, measure and map the biological, chemical and physical properties of the objects depicted.

Specim technology provides extreme reliability and performance. Measurements can be accurately performed hundreds of times faster than with the competing technologies.

Specim’s hyperspectral scanners are complete solutions for research applications. Within seconds they are able to visualize the biological, chemical, and physical properties of the samples and objects studied, whether an artifact or a living organism. We have seen customer imaging applications ranging from cancer detection to chemical imaging and real-time mapping of sun induced photosynthesis.


With our solid understanding of hyperspectral imaging, we have been able to carefully optimize all the components of the Specim imagers into complete and unmatched spectral camera solutions. These fully calibrated hyperspectral line cameras accurately measure the full spectrum for each image pixel simultaneously, with extreme reliability year after year.

All Specim products have outstanding image quality with excellent light throughput, leading to speed and high performance. Specim hyperspectral imagers are designed for applications ranging from precise color measurements to advanced chemical imaging.


Thanks to outstanding precision, durability and functionality, Specim imaging spectrographs are widely employed in the most advanced satellites and in continuous industrial processes. When reliability counts, Specim Imspector is the device used to convert an industrial digital camera into a powerful hyperspectral imaging device.

All the components of a Specim Imaging Spectrograph are optimised for the targeted spectral range at the desired spatial and spectral resolution, to provide unmatched value for the customer application. Each individual ImSpector undergoes stringent examination and testing, epitomizing the values that have made Imspector the first and foremost symbol of hyperspectral imaging.
