PHILADELPHIA, May 3, 2010 — Thermo Fisher Scientific Inc. has announced the latest release in its GRAMS Suite of spectroscopy software, a solution for visualizing, processing, reporting and managing spectroscopy data.
It comprises a collection of complementary and fully integrated applications and modules centered on the core GRAMS/AI spectroscopy data processing and reporting software. It offers advanced processing routines, data comparison and visualization features, and the ability to handle data from any analytical instrument. New functionality enables scientists to more easily and rapidly access their data and make more informed decisions about the results generated.
The new version introduces GRAMS IQ, a next-generation enhancement for visual chemometric modeling, delivering a simplified visual workflow and model deployment capabilities for quantitative and qualitative analyses. GRAMS Convert automatically finds and transforms all of the spectra on a hard drive to a standard format.
Smart Convert/Import has a new interactive import wizard that enables scientists to manage data from more than 180 types of infrared, ultraviolet/visible, nuclear magnetic resonance and liquid-/gas-chromatography mass spectrometry instruments.
The comprehensive functionality improves access to data, facilitates collaboration and reduces costs by eliminating the need for multiple vendor software packages and the associated training. The software is supported on Microsoft Vista Pro and adds compatibility with more than 30 new instrument data formats.
Because of its broad compatibility with many instrument data types, the software is valuable to researchers across a broad range of industries and academia to help solve difficult data analysis challenges.
Applications include pharmaceuticals, oil and gas discovery, food processing and food safety, water and wastewater treatment, forensics and biobanking.
