Our three-day training course educates process NIR users on the details of hardware setup (spectrometers, probes, and accessories), good installation practices, sampling theory, CMET process software, and I/O communications. The course is intended for users of Bruker Optics Matrix-F FT-NIR spectrometers and will focus on the use of CMET (Continuous Measurement Evaluation Transfer) process software within the Bruker Optics Opus software package. The course will consist of lectures, instrument teaching sessions, and troubleshooting sessions intended to address problems that users are experiencing within their own applications.
*Please note this course will NOT focus on Quant or other specific types of method development. For instruction on calibration development please refer to our standard FT-NIR training course.
A working knowledge of the Microsoft Windows operating system and a familiarity with your Bruker Matrix-F FT-NIR instrument. The basic aspects of the operating system (e.g. copying files, formatting disks, installing printers) can be practiced in the Tutorial provided with the operating system.
The course will consist of lectures, laboratory sessions, and demonstrations which emphasize basic principles of process FT-NIR instrumentation, inline installation practices, sampling techniques, the OPUS/CMET PC software, and introductory instrument maintenance and troubleshooting.
