One Sample, One Worldwide Result – An Interlaboratory Ring Trial

AquaSpec™ Technology revolutionises analytical chemistry worldwide. Using an ultrathin flow cell, aqueous sample MIR spectra are captured within minutes, at low concentrations, and at high reproducibility. And – can then be used across all your labs. Embedded in the fully automated and robust Mira Analyzer benchtop device, AquaSpec™ is applicable across the pharmaceutical, chemical, and food industries. The exceptionally high accuracy, precision, and interlaboratory reproducibility of the Mira Analyzer has recently been confirmed in an interlaboratory ring trial, carried out in cooperation with a global leader in the chemical industry.

The exceptional high accuracy, precision and interlaboratory reproducibility of the Mira Analyzer has recently been confirmed in an interlaboratory ring trial, carried out in cooperation with a global player in chemical industry. Therefore, a test mixture was measured on twelve Mira Analyzers, distributed over five laboratories, and operated by five individual staff members. For quantification, a machine learning model was trained on one single device. This model was then used by the remaining eleven devices for concentration prediction. The results confirm the high accuracy and precision of the Mira Analyzer. Additionally, the Horwitz Ratio (Horrat) was used, where values between 0.19 and 0.23 obtained for the different mixture components confirm the excellent interlaboratory reproducibility of the Mira Analyzer.

This study is a clear demonstration of Mira Analyzer’s excellent performance. The robust and fully automated design allows highly accurate, precise, and reproducible analytical results within global and distributed laboratories, independent of the operator or the laboratory. With its high device-to-device transferability and its flexible application in numerous industrial processes, the Mira Analyzer delivers as a true Industry 4.0 technology with fast and transferable analysis.
