Spectral DB – an easy to use spectral data management tool

Now included as standard in the GRAMS Spectroscopy Software Suite, Spectral DB is a unique desktop data management tool for organising spectra and chromatograms into a database. Data stored with Spectral DB can be easily saved, organised, retrieved, viewed and shared with others in your workgroup.

Like most databases, it can store textual information such as sample number and compound name. In addition, Spectral DB can store associated binary data like spectra and chemical structures, making it not only informational but also visually adaptable to technical presentations.

Spectral DB is supported by Thermo Scientific’s SmartConvert technology, giving it the unique capability of being a repository of data files from hundreds of different analytical instruments. And because Spectral DB is inherently built to communicate with one’s installed copy of GRAMS, all the processing, viewing, and plotting capabilities of GRAMS and its add-on applications can be applied to one’s data. A click on a grid page spectrum launches your installed copy of GRAMS with the spectrum attached, linking Spectral DB tothe most advanced suite of analytical and data processing tools.

Spectral DB

Local Database Access
The Spectral DB database schema is Microsoft Access-based. It is tailored for the user who wishes to quickly archive spectral and chromatographic data from one or more supported analytical instruments, store associated information, extract information from it, create and print presentation pages. It is built on a “put data in, ask questions, get answers” structure, making it an instantly useful tool for both novice and advanced users.

Intuitive Forms Layout and Design
Spectral DB comes with predefined templates of functional spectral and laboratory archives. These can be used straight out of the box or as starting points for customized page layouts. These templates enable the user to be instantly productive. Spectral DB’s multi-paged workbook format provides versatile ways of displaying data.

Browsing and Querying
Spectral DB’s Browse Mode operations provide easy access to database records. These include viewing, filtering, querying, sorting, adding, modifying and deleting records.

What do our Customers say about us?

Here is to the best software support team – ever! Many, many thanks. You have definitely made my day! yay!! :-)


Origin lets you zoom in on an an area of the plot easily without having to rescale manually. I also love the data reader feature where you can follow a line or curve and view the exact coordinate values. Thanks for an awesome product!

“While skeptical at first, now having switched to Origin I know it will remain my graphing software of choice. Not only does it have an intuitive user interface, but it also has the power to quickly and efficiently complete all of my graphing needs. Origin is the best graphing software available. Period.”

Mr. Kevin Clark, University of Illinois Urbana/Champaign

Course was excellent, Bob was very thorough, covering a lot of ground. The content was just what was required. Very pleased!
