New Version 9.1!
Gold: GRAMS, Thermo Fisher Scientific
Bronze: GRAMS/AI, Thermo Fisher Scientific
The GRAMS Spectroscopy Software Suite is the
premier solution for visualizing, processing and managing spectroscopy
data offering broad compatibility with many different instrument data
types and a simple user interface. Thousands of life and analytical
science researchers rely on GRAMS powerful collection of processing
routines to solve some of their most difficult data analysis problems.
The GRAMS Suite improves access to data and facilitates collaboration
while reducing the need for multiple software packages and associated
The GRAMS Suite provides a broad collection of tools to meet the needs
of scientists engaged in a wide variety of spectroscopic experiments
and disciplines. The GRAMS Suite is comprised of a set of complementary
and fully integrated applications and modules centered on the core GRAMS/AI
spectroscopy data processing and reporting software.
Using the unique SmartConvert technology all GRAMS Suite applications
are compatible with data files from hundreds of different instrument
control applications including Agilent/HP, Beckman, Bio-Rad, Bruker,
Gilson, Hitachi, PerkinElmer, Shimadzu, Varian, Waters/Micromass. The
GRAMS Suite also supports a number of general-purpose data formats such
as SPC, ASCII, JCAMP, and AnDI/NetCDF. For storing data, the GRAMS Suite
utilizes the universal SPC file format enabling scientists to share data
with colleagues easily and analyze it at their desks rather than occupying
valuable instrument workstations.
Complete information and a list of supported data file formats is available
in the downloadable GRAMS Suite Brochure. We offer Special Academic Pricing
on the GRAMS Suite for valid academic organizations. You can also download
the GRAMS trial version and check out all the features yourself!
The core application of the GRAMS Suite, GRAMS/AI is a comprehensive processing,
visualization and reporting package for data from many types of spectroscopic
instruments as well as hyphenated techniques. Its advanced processing routines,
data comparison and visualization features and its ability to handle data from
virtually any analytical instrument data station have set the industry standard
in scientific software.
GRAMS IQ is a graphical multivariate analysis tool for building quantitative
calibrations as well as qualitative models for discriminant analysis. In fact
qualitative and quantitative methods can be linked together to provide a complete
spectroscopic model of your samples. This software product is the complete
solution for analysts looking to apply chemometric calibrations in the laboratory
and on the production line.
A new tool included with GRAMS, Envision is a
multi-format Microsoft® .NET instrument data viewer
with the capacity to host plug-in processing and reporting modules. Envision
enhances GRAMS Smart Convert technology with more than 20 new instrument
converters. It also offers support of the GAML open standard XML instrument
data format. GAML allows capture of more comprehensive instrument meta-data
and simplifies integration with LIMS, eLN and desktop applications. A
run-time version of Inform, a
drag-and-drop report designer built to complement GRAMS Envision, is included
as part of Envision.
DB - now included free of charge with GRAMS/AI
As scientists work with increasingly large amounts of instrument data,
keeping track of their samples and experiments is becoming more and
more difficult. Often, researchers find themselves dealing with more
information than they can effectively manage. Spectral DB provides
a data management tool scalable from the desktop to the enterprise
for organizing spectra and chromatograms into a simple, searchable
database. Spectral DB supports Oracle, MS SQL Server and Access database
Spectral pattern matching or "library searching" is one of
the most efficient, effective methods for qualitative identification
of compounds, and Spectral ID is the most comprehensive searching software
available. Fast and easy to use, it includes algorithms for materials
identification using Mass Spectrometry, IR, Raman, UV-Vis, Fluorescence
or NIR data. Spectral ID is compatible with spectral libraries from Chemical
Concepts, NIST, Wiley, and Thermo which can be combined with user-built
Unlike static 3D plotting and rendering packages, GRAMS/3D is a true
real-time visualization software application that offers scientists
an interactive tool to view all the information in multidimensional
data sets such as GC-IR, LC-PDA, multidimensional spectroscopy,
2D-NMR, 2D-IR, or spectroscopic mapping experiments.
PLSplus/IQ - Spectroscopy Chemometrics Toolbox
data analysis methods have become common tools in applying modern spectroscopic
instruments to solve qualitative and quantitative analysis problems.
Chemometric techniques such as PLS, PCR, PCA and discriminant analysis
have become standard approaches to quickly analyzing complex samples
from their spectral signatures. Stand alone GRAMS IQ extends GRAMS/AI's
capabilities with an easy to follow, step-by-step graphical user interface
for creating and deploying chemometric calibration models for the laboratory
and the production line. The separate IQ Predict module can be used to
deploy GRAMS IQ calibrations in a "predict-only" mode
to multiple GRAMS/AI users. GRAMS IQ maintains compatibility with PLSPlus/IQ
In situations with relatively simple samples, multivariate calibration
methods like PLS are often too complex and unnecessary. The QuickQuant
module for GRAMS/AI offers a simple least squares regression calibration
method for spectral data.
The ExcelExchange module allows seamless transfer of data between GRAMS/AI
spectral data files and Microsoft Excel worksheets. Data can be easily
transferred in both directions: from a GRAMS data file into an Excel
worksheet and from a worksheet to a data file.
GRAMS convert intelligently scans multiple directories converting
known file formats into the industry standard GRAMS .SPC format.
