Malvern Instruments releases ISys 5.0, the latest version of the company’s chemical imaging analysis software. The ability to analyze mapping and imaging data from mid-infrared and Raman platforms is now extended to include the near-infrared spectral range as well. Data from Kaiser, Horiba Jobin-Yvon, Renishaw, Witech, Varian, Thermo, Bruker, PerkinElmer, and Chemimage mapping and imaging platforms can all be imported. Files in generic formats such as Grams, Matlab, ENVI, Metamorph, multi-page tiff and ASCII, can also be accessed. Other non-vibrational spectroscopic imaging data platforms can also be imported—EDAX X-ray fluorescence and Horiba Jobin Yvon XGT file formats, for example.
Changes to the software licensing structure now enable users to optimize implementation for unique applications. Chemometrics, Image processing, and Macros are now available as separate options, purchased in addition to a base license. ISys Macro functions have expanded to create a more complete environment for customized data processing scripts.
