Eigenvector Research Inc

Eigenvector Research Inc. (EVRI) is renowned for its expertise in multivariate analysis and chemometrics. With vast experience in a wide range of applications, and well-established as a leading project consultant, EVRI offers an extensive list of tools – generic or specialized.

EVRI’s Solo software offers wide range of analytical tools including:

  • Principal component analysis (PCA)
  • Multicurve resolution (MCR)
  • Partial least squares analysis (PLS)
  • Multilinear regression (MLR)
  • Principal component regression (PCR)
  • Classical least squares analysis (CLS)
  • Parallel factor analysis (PARAFAC)
  • K-nearest neighbor clustering (KNN)

The MIA (Multivariate Image Analysis) add-on to Solo applies multivariate analysis methods to images to enhance and complement spectral analysis results.

MIA recognizes appropriate model results and presents them in image format, performs image specific analysis such as maximum autocorrelative factors (MAF) and image-enhanced clustering, and enables texture-analysis functions which encode the texture in an image into a vector for pattern or regression analysis.


Bio-Rad Laboratories, Inc

Bio-Rad Laboratories, Inc. manufactures and distributes a broad range of products for the life science research and clinical diagnostics markets.  Bio-Rad’s Informatics segment specializes in software and database solutions for the scientific community including spectroscopy, chemistry, chemometrics, and metabolomics. Bio-Rad is the leading publisher of fully verified spectral databases with a collection of over 1.4 million spectra.

The HORIBA edition of Bio-Rad’s KnowItAll® Informatics system is a fully integrated chemistry software and database package that provides scientific researchers multiple tools, including database building and management, search, analysis, structure drawing, and reporting all within a single user interface.

LabSpec 6 users can seamless transfer spectra into the KnowItAll® HORIBA Edition, and make use of its varied functions including:

  • Spectrum database searching, to match a spectrum of an unknown material to those of known materials in the databases
  • Mixture analysis, to identify multiple spectral components contributing to a single mixed spectrum, based on database matching
  • AnalyzeIt™ functional group analysis,  to probe specific functional groups contributing peaks in a spectrum

The HORIBA Edition of KnowItAll® is supplied with HORIBA’s own Raman spectral databases, comprising over 1750 Raman spectra  from a wide range of materials, including inorganics, organics and polymers, minerals, bio-minerals, semiconductors and pigments/dyes.
