The authors have investigated the use of a time-domain optimal filtering method to simultaneously minimize both the baseline variation and high-frequency noise in near-infrared (NIR) spectrophotometric absorption data of glucose dissolved in a simple aqueous (deionized water) matrix. By coupling a third-order (6-pole) digital Butterworth bandpass filter with partial least-squares (PLS) regression modeling, glucose concentrations were determined for a set of test data with a standard error of prediction (SEP) of 10.53 mg/dl (mean percent error: 4.24%) using 7 PLS factors. Compared to the unfiltered test data for 6 PLS factors and a SEP=17.00 (mean percent error: 7.38%) this results shows more than a 38% decrease in the error. The glucose concentrations ranged from 51 mg/dl to 493 mg/dl, and the NIR spectral region between 2088 nm and 2354 nm (4789 cm -1 and 4248 cm -1) was used to develop the optimal PLS model. The optimal PLS model was determined from a sequence of 3-dimensional performance response maps for different numbers of PLS factors (2-10). A total of 99 NIR spectra were generated for glucose dissolved in deionized water using a NIRsystems 5000 dispersive spectrophotometer. Nine of these spectra were generated for only water, which were averaged and subtracted from the remaining 90 spectra to generate the training and test data sets, thereby, removing the intrinsic high background absorption due to the water. The training set consisted of 57 spectra and associated glucose concentration target values, and the test set was comprised of the remaining 33 spectra and target values. Performance results were compared for 3 different digital Butterworth bandpass filters (4-poles, 6-poles, and 8-poles), and a digital Gaussian filter design approach (i.e., Fourier filtering).
