The LabSpec 6 Software Suite guides you through ready to use, simple and automated Workflows provinding user-friendly assistance and optimization of your measurements, data processing and analysis. The fully integrated software apps, available in the LabStore, will boost your experiments even further and save your time and efforts, thus, allowing generation of stunning results!

This approach reflects the typical usage of these systems and is based on many years of expertise and research by HORIBA!


LabSpec 6 software offers an intuitive interface which enables a logical workflow through an experiment, from visualization of the sample and measurement setup, to interpretation of the data, and final reporting of the results.

EasyImage enables quick and easy acquisition of meaningful chemical images of your samples without needing a high level of Raman expertise


MultiPoints provides automated Raman spectra acquisition. Create your own recipe by selecting multiple random positions on the sample


MultiWell offers an easy interface for high throughput screening using traditional well plates, microtiter plates and other regularly arrayed sampling devices

EasyNav Technology

With the groundbreaking EasyNav™ package, it is fast and easy to navigate in-focus, in real-time, to identify the region of interest and obtain sharp, clear Raman chemical images. HORIBA NavMap™ + NavSharp™ + ViewSharp™ apps can be used together or separately to deliver a powerful user experience for all Raman users.

SmartID automatically recognizes the microscope objective in use


NavMap helps to navigate around your large samples


NavSharp provides real time focusing while navigating around samples


ViewSharp constructs 3D sample topography and fully focused images


Mosaic enables fast imaging of large sample areas by video stitching


Spectral Acquisition

LabSpec 6 can acquire multi-dimensional datasets, full spectral range or custom ranges, including 1D profiles (such as line X, Y, depth Z, time, kinetic, temperature studies), 2D images (such as XY surface maps) and 3D cubes (i.e., confocal XYZ maps).

Point-by-point mapping provides ultimate sensitivity for imaging, ideal for low scattering materials


SWIFT mapping provides ultra-fast images with acquisition times below 500ms/point. Ideal for high scattering materials


SmartSampling allows super large and super high resolution image acquisition up to 100 times faster, even for low scattering materials


Data Processing

Processing is a crucial step in spectroscopy. The preprocessing of raw spectral data helps to eliminate noise (and undesired signals,) along with the enhancement of discriminating spectral features. LabSpec 6 software includes a large palette of processing tools that can be applied in real time during acquisition or post-acquisition for enhanced qualitative and quantitative analysis!

FLAT enables Real-time on-the-fly fluorescence backgrounds removal from spectra


Data enhancement provides custom baseline, smoothing, normalization, thresholding and more


Math allows mathematical operations to be applied for spectral and image data manipulation
