Bio Rad Laboratories, a multinational manufacturer and distributor of life science research and clinical diagnostic products, has released its KnowItAll Informatics System 2013 spectroscopy software. Offering comprehensive solutions for spectral analysis, identification, search, data management, and reporting, the software supports multiple instrument vendor file formats and techniques (IR, Raman, NIR, NMR, MS, UV-Vis). Combined with one of the world's largest spectral reference collections (more than 1.4 million spectra), it helps chemists extract even greater knowledge from their spectral data.
