CES 2023

Events / By MantiSpectra

In the beginning of this year MantiSpectra was an exhibitor at CES in Las Vegas.

It has been a blast at the Dutch Pavilion! We met hundreds of companies at our booth, and the coming weeks will be quite busy as we nurture these new relationships.

We are on our mission to bring NIR spectroscopy to the masses and it’s great to see the enthusiasm and excitement of so many people ready to embrace the spectral revolution.

Academic Startup Program

Our CEO Maurangelo Petruzzella joined the ScaleNL Academic Startup Competition trip to the US last November.

“Product recall. This is the worst nightmare today in the food industry. It creates a damage of 10 million euros per case. And the reason for that is quality control is inefficient.”

You can watch the full Pitch here.

SPOT ON Magazine

A great article in the SPOT ON magazine of the EHIC looking back at January 2022: the month our COO Kaylee Hakkel defended her PhD, and when our article in Nature Communications was published! It describes the development of the spectral sensors that are now at the core of MantiSpectra’s technology.

Holiday Wishes!

As the holiday season approaches, we wanted to take a moment to wish you and your loved ones a great winter break! We hope that this time is filled with joy, love, and all the things that make the holiday season special for you. 

As we look back on the past year, we are truly grateful to have met all of you, with a special thanks to the wonderful customers, early adopters, and partners ready to embrace a new technology that is going to change how we sense the world around us.

And it’s great to see your enthusiasm:
once you receive our SpectraPod, after each measurement, and the moment of suspense before getting the prediction result. It’s magic.

We built all of this for you! And this is only the start. You are all pioneers. We are on a mission to democratize near-infrared Spectroscopy, to enable everybody to see the invisible world around us.

Now, a final quiz, before the end of the year:
How many microprocessors are used today? And how many spectral sensors will be used in the 2030s?

Have a great 2023! 


Helsinki Mission


Last week our CTO Francesco Pagliano and COO Kaylee Hakkel participated in the Dutch mission to Helsinki. It was a very inspiring week with big events like the Dutch 4TU Impact Challenge, Slush and a lot of new contacts!

Thanks to the 4TU.FederationRijksdienst voor Ondernemend Nederland (RVO)The Gate and the Embassy of the Netherlands in Finland for the great organization and the support!


US Trip

What a great start today in San Francisco to kick off our US trip with ScaleNL: exploring the city of rebels, tech giants, VCs and Data.

We have beeing inspired by founders, VCs, academics.
It is not surpising to see that these elements are interconnected.

Data is driving innovation, a gigantic collection of information smashed together to understand the world around us.

And then there is our tiny sensor, ChipSense, that with her kilobytes data stream has the power to make sense of the physical world around us.

It’s a matter of time and it’s a promise: spectral sensing will be a fundamental layer of data that will be as universal as gps is today, and guide our choices in our everyday life.

And we are here to meet the rebels that will be part of this revolution.


PIC Summit Europe

MantiSpectra was one of the supporters of the PIC Summit Europe 2022.
No other event unites end-users, academics, investors, and major players from across the photonics industry in the same way. 🌍

MantiSpectra’s Birthday

MantiSpectra is two years old today! 

We are proud of our progress and grateful to have all our partners and friends along the journey.

With an exciting future ahead, we are ready to expand as we advance in the Spectral Revolution.


A Laboratory In Your Hand


In 2018 PhotonDelta received a contribution of 35 million from the Regio Deal Brainport Eindhoven to enhance the region’s economic strength, the business climate and the quality of life. 📈 Now, 4 years later, Brainport Eindhoven is looking back at the results.

With MantiSpectra’s technology we can check whether a tomato is ripe without picking it, measuring protein levels in fresh milk in the barn, drug testing at the crime scene and more….
