Import All your Analytical Data into a Single Vendor-Neutral Software Environment

Supported Vendor Formats

Import data from different analytical techniques directly into Spectrus Processor.

The software supports most major instrument vendors, industry standard formats, and open source formats.

"Spectrus Processor is a really powerful tool for processing NMR, MS, IR, and chromatographic data. It is very user-friendly and intuitive. One of its major strengths is that it is independent of the instrument manufacturer."
Dr. Rainer Ebel (University of Aberdeen)

Freedom to Process & Analyze Data Away From the Instrument Software

Spectrus Processor is ideal for processing or re-processing analytical data away from the instrument.

  • Save time and effort by learning to use just one software interface for handling all your analytical data
  • Preserve valuable instrument time for data acquisition

"We provide our medicinal chemists with a dozen LC/MS, LC/UV, and NMR instruments from various vendors including Agilent, Bruker, Gilson, Thermo, and Waters. Using one tool to process and analyze all this data, instead of a suite of five or more, will certainly streamline the efforts of my group."
Dr. Amin Mirza (Institute of Cancer Research)

Typical users of Spectrus Processor include:

Organic/synthetic/medicinal chemists that want to process and analyze data at their desk Organic/synthetic/medicinal chemists that want to process and analyze data at their desk

Visualize your Analytical Data Together for Fast, Confident Answers

More than one analytical experiment is often used to help characterize samples and identify chemical structures.

Spectrus Processor assembles related analytical and chemical information together in one interface.

This connected, assembled data provides convenient visualization of complimentary data resulting in faster, more confident decisions.

Visualize connected, assembled LC/UV/MS, 1D NMR, 2D NMR, and other analytical results for faster answers from your data

Accelerate Data Analysis with Powerful Database Search Capabilities

Spectrus Processor offers a variety of parameters for searching internally created and commercially available databases to assist with spectral analysis and interpretation—search by a variety of structural, spectral, and text-based parameters.

Search results are overlaid on the query spectrum with colored highlighting of matching signals for easy interpretation.

Review of spectral databases helps accelerate analysis, while the ability to re-process and re-interpret internally collected spectra can provide clarity and answer new questions.
