Purency Microplastics Finder

Finding and identifying Microplastics becomes routine

Purency’s Flagship Product

The Microplastics Finder

A software solution based on machine learning that automatically analyses your spectral data to identify
microplastics - within minutes. Welcome to the new standard for microplastics data analysis.

What the Purency Microplastics Finder can do

Automate finding and identifying Microplastics in your spectral data

A reliable and scalable workflow that enables you to determine the size, type, and number of microplastic particles in your samples - faster and more robust than ever before.
Automation based on machine learning enables you to increase the quality of your results while minimizing manual efforts. Size and number of particles of more than 20 different polymer types (including the most abundantly produced, thus, covering 99% of microplastics found in the environment) are identified in your sample. Finally, you can focus on interpreting results rather than dealing with complicated analysis. A scalable workflow that brings your microplastics detection to the level of routine analysis. Join the Microplastics Finder community now and promote comparability with other labs around the world.

How does the Purency Microplastic Finder work?

The Microplastics finder leverages machine learning technology based on unique, expert-curated training data from real-life samples

  • microplastic finder #1
  • microplastic finder #2
  • microplastic finder #3
Enormous amounts of data are produced during the measurement processes based on imaging spectroscopy: millions of spectra and datasets of several GB require a reliable analysis. To identify materials, each spectrum needs to be classified by using reference spectra. Measured spectra from microplastics samples come with a high variability (e.g. total absorption, weathering effects etc.) which need to be taken into account during the analysis.

During years of research and development, we were able to build up a unique, expert-curated dataset of several thousands of spectra from real-life samples that include this variability. With conventional approaches, such as spectral libraries, more reference spectra lead to longer processing times. Therefore, the Microplastics Finder is based on machine learning and overcomes this challenge. By leveraging the power of this technology, you do not have to make a compromise between speed and analytical quality anymore. One solution, one button empowers you to analyze a wide variety of samples and polymers - within minutes.

WHO IS IT FOR

The Microplastics Finder unlocks the full value of chemical data - currently for μFTIR imaging users

  • environmental matrices and substrates/filters on Monitor

μFTIR has proven to be the go-to method for microplastics analysis. The Microplastics Finder solves the data analysis bottleneck .

If samples include many particles, μFTIR Imaging is the superior method as it saves several hours or even days when measuring a filter. However, enormous amounts of data are produced that come with a high variability. With the Microplastics Finder, you can easily deal with these challenges and finally capture the full value μFTIR Imaging.

The current version of the Microplastics Finder is compatible with all major μFTIR Imaging devices on the market. It covers a wide range of environmental matrices and substrates/filters. Currently, we are working on expanding its applicability to other application fields.
