Spectral Database Searching

Data Searching LabSpec 6 Logo

1750 Raman spectra available

HORIBA Scientific collaborates with Bio-Rad to offer the HORIBA Edition of the KnowItAll® Informatics system. This advanced software has an integrated environment for complete spectral searching, analysis and data mining. A seamless link is provided between LabSpec 6 and KnowItAll® - once a spectrum has been acquired, one click will export the data into KnowItAll® and initiate a search. From this point on, the full functionality of KnowItAll® is available for further data mining.

The HORIBA Edition of KnowItAll® offers many advanced tools to complement LabSpec 6’s integrated functionality. These include:

  • Database searching with advanced matching algorithms
  • Database creation allowing custom databases to be created and used for searching
  • Mixture analysis to identify multiple components within a single mixture spectrum
  • Functional group analysis with AnalyzeIt™, a module which is used to interrogate spectra or molecular structures based on individual functional groups.  It can be used to understand the origin of a specific peak in a spectrum, or to gain insight into potential peak positions for functional groups within a known molecular structure.
  • Upgradability to HaveItAll Raman extended Raman spectral databases, offering in total over 9,000 spectra from wide material types.
