Analytical Spectral Devices (ASD) , manufacturer of rapid precision analytical and quality control instruments introduces the new ultra-rugged TerraSpec™ created specifically for field analysis of rocks and soils. TerraSpec™ logs core; analyzes outcrops, blastholes, and hand samples; measures soil grids and profiles; and maps pit benches, vector mineralization, and remote sensing ground truth sites.
TerraSpec™ is an ideal tool for analysis of a wide variety of deposit types from epithermal to porphyries, kimberlites, IOCG, carbonate hosted base metals, greenschist belts, shear veins, skarns, and disseminated gold systems. TerraSpec™ is a compact and field portable precision instrument with a full spectral range (350-2500 nm), a 5nm spectral resolution, and rapid data collection (1/10 th of a second per spectrum). Including ASD's fiber optic mineral probe, the TerraSpec™ system is lightweight, ultra-rugged, and affordable.
Founded in 1990, Analytical Spectral Devices is the only manufacturer of truly field-portable, laboratory-quality UV/Vis/NIR spectrometers, spectroradiometers, spectrophotometers and corresponding software. ASD's instruments perform well in a range of environmental conditions, in and outside of the laboratory, and have applications in pharmaceutical, nutraceutical, analytical chemistry, mining, soils analysis, grain, food and dairy, earth sciences, and pulp and paper industries in 50 countries.
