Bio-Rad software for infrared, Raman and polymer spectral interpretation

KnowItAll v8.3 software from Bio-Rad Laboratories, Inc. (Hercules, CA) for infrared (IR), Raman, and IR polymer compounds allows users to improve IR, Raman and polymer spectral interpretations by building a knowledge base of functional groups and corresponding bands from their own data. Users can then compare and use their data in conjunction with KnowItAll's built-in knowledge base.



Bio-Rad Announces Advances in Infrared, Raman, and Polymer Spectral Interpretation

HERCULES, CA – November 9, 2010 – Bio-Rad Laboratories, Inc. (NYSE: BIO and BIOb), a multinational manufacturer and distributor of life science research and clinical diagnostic products, today announced a new feature to improve the interpretation of infrared (IR) and Raman spectra in version 8.3 of its award-winning KnowItAll® software.

The latest KnowItAll release highlights a major addition to the AnalyzeIt™ spectral interpretation applications for IR, Raman, and IR Polymer compounds. With this release, users can now improve spectral interpretations by building knowledge base of functional groups and corresponding bands from their own data to use in conjunction with KnowItAll’s built-in knowledge base.

“This new feature will ensure that users can obtain the best spectral interpretation possible for unknown samples using IR or Raman spectroscopy,” explained Gregory M. Banik, Ph.D., General Manager, Bio-Rad Informatics. “It is particularly useful to those in the polymer and other industries where the compounds analyzed are proprietary ones whose functional groups may not be included in the commercial KnowItAll knowledgebases. By building an additional knowledge base with an organization's own functional group moieties, the interpretation becomes as precise as it can be for unique compounds.”
