Malvern Instruments has launched a 64-bit edition of its ISys chemical imaging data analysis software, which has applications across a number of different technologies. ISys provides a single platform that supports the import of MIR, NIR and Raman imaging and mapping data files from a variety of vendors. It includes all the tools needed to intuitively understand chemical imaging data in spectral (chemical) and spatial (image) dimensions simultaneously.
The original 32-bit ISys was developed from the ground up for the visualisation and analysis of multi-dimensional data – specifically for chemical imaging and mapping. As increasing numbers of researchers now invest in 64-bit PCs and 64-bit versions of Microsoft Windows for easier handling of large amounts of data (including large maps and concatenated images), the 64-bit edition of ISys permits manipulation of even the largest imaging datasets.
