Process, Analyze, and Report All Your Analytical Data in One Interface

Spectrus Processor Overview

Analytical Data Processing and Analysis for All Techniques and Data Formats

ACD/Spectrus Processor is a single software platform that processes and interprets all your spectrometric and spectroscopic data.

With this multi-technique, vendor-neutral application you can get answers from your data regardless of the instrument it was collected on.

Use Spectrus Processor to:

  • Process NMR, LC/MS, GC/MS, HPLC, IR, Raman, DSC, TGA data, and more
  • Interpret your data quickly and efficiently with built-in tools to assist
  • Assemble results from multiple experiments in one dashboard
  • Search in-house and commercial spectral libraries
  • Report your results and prepare publication-ready analytical data

Why Choose Spectrus Processor?

Work with Your Data from Anywhere

  • Conveniently process and re-process data away from the instrument
  • Simplify your software learning with just one interface to master for all your processing and analysis

Handle All Your Analytical Data in One Application

  • Import data from different analytical techniques—NMR, LC/MS, GC/MS, HPLC, IR, Raman, etc.
  • Support for most major instrument vendors, and industry-standard or open-source formats

Free-up Valuable Instrument Time for Data Acquisition

  • When you’re not tied to processing your data on the instrument software it leaves the instrument free for data acquisition

Fast, Confident Answers from Assembled Analytical Data

  • Easily assemble all related analytical and chemical information together
  • Conveniently review complimentary data together for faster decisions

Accelerate Data Analysis with Powerful Database Search Capabilities

  • Search internally created and commercially available databases
  • Review search results overlaid on query spectra. Color highlighting of matching signals makes for easy interpretation.
  • Use chemically intelligent search—search by structure, substructure, spectral, and text-based parameters
  • Get clarity and answer new questions with easy reprocessing and reinterpretation

Report with Ease

  • Quickly create a comprehensive multi-technique report

  • Assemble publication-ready data using popular journal templates

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

Handle all your optical data (IR, Raman, UV-Vis and more) in a single software interface. Interactive tools aid spectral interpretation (placing cursor on the IR peak highlights the related structural fragment).

Handle a wide array of x,y data including thermogravimetric analysis (TGA) and differential scanning calorimetry (DSC)

Import hyphenated mass spectral data (LC/MS, LC.UV/MS, GC/MS etc.) from all major instrument vendor formats into Spectrus Processor. Extract individual component spectra for analysis and review.

Overlay spectra with ease to facilitate structure identification

Structure verification metrics such as 'Match factor' offer convenient numerical evaluation of data consistency with a structure. Color highlighting provides convenient visual feedback.

Customer Reviews
“All our routine analyses are being processed and reported using Spectrus’s fairly intuitive and the users have been happy with it. In the short time I played with the IR tools I was able to get more out of the data than with the original instrument vendor software.”

Matthew Jones
Head TBDOS Discovery Analytical Research, Takeda

“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

“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

“We have been using Spectrus Processor to analyze our chemical and analytical data. The ability to review data from multiple analytical techniques in a single environment has been most beneficial for us. The interface is very user-friendly and the transition from our previous combinations of software was exceptionally smooth.”

Dr Karen Yuen
OTI Lumionics Inc.

Deployment/Integration Options

Simplify Dereplication by NMR with the Known Structure Identification Add-On

Want to speed up the identification of compounds with NMR data? The Known Structure Identification Add-On includes a database of almost 100 million known structures from open chemistry databases (e.g., PubChem) along with their predicted 13C NMR signals. Quickly identify whether an unknown compound has already been characterized by matching its experimental 1D (13C NMR) or 2D (1H-13C HSQC and 1H-13C HMBC) signal entries to those in the database.

More Reasons to Use Spectrus Processor 

Why Choose Third-Party Software to Process & Analyze Data?

For your R&D, you’re choosing the hardware that works best for each need. Often, that results in a lab full of diverse instruments from multiple vendors. Each has its own software interface for data processing and analysis, and before you know it, you’re working with half a dozen programs.
