  • Feasibility Photonic Insights Tea Analyzer

    Feasibility study to demonstrate rapid analysis and classification of tea. We include a non tea infusion as contrast and demonstrate the ability to determine caffeine content, tea type green, black or infusion and the variety from gunpowder, Assam, Madras, peppermint, Darjeeling to genmai-cha. This feasibility paves the way for the goal, identify pollutants in storm water. How does identifying tea help us progress to identifying pollutants in stormwater? Because it adds to our datamodel and validates the rapid creation of chemometric models.
