DRS DayLight ChemDetect Analyser

Unmatched specificity and speed

Daylight Solutions

The ChemDetect™ Analyser is a compact, intelligent spectrometer that uses the power of quantum cascade lasers to analyse and identify chemicals. It combines the latest high-speed, broadly tunable QCL technology with advanced, uncooled detection capability. An embedded computer is programmed with chemical identification algorithms for unmatched specificity and speed.


  • Rugged CDMO core technology
  • Fine discrimination of chemical targets
  • High sensitivity with wide dynamic range
  • Intuitive, straightforward user interface
  • Industry-leading beam quality, pointing stability, and repeatability
  • Rock solid wavelength performance
  • Efficient SWaP
  • SDK and full programmability
  • USB, ethernet or wireless connectivity
  • Built-in references, data storage and computing capability

This versatile mid-IR spectrometer and chemical analyser enables standoff detection or coupling into liquid, solid, and gas sample cells, including long path-length multipass cells, flow cells, and ATR probes. Its high speed and broad tuning range enable simultaneous detection of multiple target chemicals with ease. Benchtop, rack-mount, and portable ruggedised versions are available with ATR, open path, and gas cell sample interfaces.

The ChemDetect Analyser offers the advantages of a turnkey system for measuring chemical concentrations yet is configurable for OEM use. It provides spectra you can trust from the moment you turn it on. The laser module includes a built-in reference detector, and a separate high-speed signal detector captures the beam after sample interrogation. An integrated controller and data acquisition module powers the laser and receives the reference and signal detector data while drawing only 5 watts of power for the entire system. This chemical analyser is so portable that it can be taken to the sample site, whether terrestrial, airborne, or beyond.
