Thermo Fisher Scientific launched the Thermo Scientific OMNIC Specta software for Raman applications. The software was developed to improve the quality and ease of gathering sample information contained in Raman spectral data. The OMNIC Specta is an innovation for Raman technology and brings dependable, clear, and easy-to-understand results without challenging data preparation and interpretation, according to Thermo Fisher Scientific. These capabilities allow customers to improve analytical problem solving in forensic science, pharmaceutical, polymer, and research laboratories.
Previously available only on FT-IR instruments, the OMNIC Specta for Raman spectroscopy has been designed to achieve remarkable productivity and sensitivity improvements in fast-paced Raman laboratories that need to analyze the molecular composition of raw materials, production processes, and finished goods, according to the company. Enhanced data presentation features for multi-component searching transforms the OMNIC Specta to an efficient method for one-step identification of complex materials.
A contaminant identification capability allows users to troubleshoot failure during product quality control (QC) verification, or when unexpected components appear in known materials, enabling QC laboratories to simplify and accelerate their problem-solving procedures, saving time and money, according to the company. In addition, the new OMNIC Specta introduces a streamlined interface that enables analysts to visualize a complete workflow on a single screen, from data collection to processing and final report. The software automatically indexes all spectral information on a user’s system, making it instantly accessible.
