Thermo Fisher Scientific has released Version 9 of its GRAMS software. The suite is comprised of a collection of complementary and fully integrated applications and modules centred on the core GRAMS/AI spectroscopy data processing and reporting software, with advanced processing routines, data comparison and visualisation features and the ability to handle data from any analytical instrument. Features include GRAMS IQ, for visual chemometric modelling, delivering a simplified visual workflow and model deployment capabilities for quantitative and qualitative analysis, GRAMS Convert, which automatically finds and transforms all spectra on a hard drive to a standard format and Smart Convert/Import, a new interactive import wizard that enables scientists to manage data from more than 180 types of IR, UV-vis, NMR and LC/GC-MS instruments. The functionality of GRAMS 9.0 improves access to data, facilitates collaboration and reduces costs by eliminating the need for multiple vendor software packages and the associated training. It is supported by Microsoft Vista Pro and adds compatibility with more than 30 new instrument data formats.
