                  Software Capabilities:

                  Step 1: In the M500/M530 start up screen, it checks your computer and network for all available drives so you can open and share to them.


                  Step 2: In the Scan-n-Search is the polished instrument user interface that makes data collection a breeze. The single beam background scan is displayed and stored as the background for the sample runs to come.


                  Step 3: In the Instrument Control Section, once the background Scan has been done, change to Sample mode and collect a real time %T scan of your sample. If you like the finished scan you can choose to save it, print it or do other advance manipulations on it.


                  Step 4: Manual Peak Labeling at a click.


                  Step 5: Advanced Functions Savitsky-Golay Smoothing for reduce system noise.


                  Step 6: Advanced Functions - Library Search - Your Spectrum can be searched / compared against premade and libraries you construct.


                  IR Reference Spectra Databases

                  An infrared spectrum of a molecule is like a fingerprint. By comparing the spectrum of an unknown compound to a library of data, the spectroscopist can identify the unknown. This technique has wide applications in many fields such as forensics, environmental chemistry, research, industrial quality control, and teaching.

                  Scan-n-Search Infrared Software includes a complete spectral library search tool with user-defined region searching, many search algorithms, and customizable reports.

                  Commercially available Reference Spectra Databases (Libraries)

                  Hundreds of Thousands of reference spectra are available from:

                      When ordering STJapan or NICODOM databases, specify the format to be "Galactic - Grams/32 & SpectralID".

                      Scan-n-Search Infrared Software can search any database from any source that is in "Galactic - Grams/32 & SpectralID" format.

                      Scan-n-Search Infrared Software can search WinFIRST libraries and Sadtler User Libraries, and can search against folders of individual files.
