The Unscrambler 9.6

Share this on social media:

The Unscrambler 9.6 is a comprehensive, multivariate data analysis software product. This product focuses on interpretation rather than statistics thereby enhancing decision-making and the speed at which decisions can be made. It requires no programming and has easy to load data features.

Extensively used across a wide range of research and industrial applications, The Unscrambler 9.6 includes advanced Chemometrics, Spectroscopy and cutting-edge Sensometrics. The results are demand-driven formulations, process optimisation and cost-savings and increased ROI in product development, process control, quality control and R&D.

Application Areas of Unscrambler 9.6:

  • Exploratory Statistics
  • Regression Analysis
  • Classification
  • Prediction
  • Design of Experiments
  • Data Pretreatments


Analysis Method

  • Descriptive statistics (Mean, Standard Deviation, Box-Plot, skewness, kurtosis, correlation matrix)
  • Principal Component Analysis (PCA)
  • Multivariate Curve Resolution (MCR)
  • Regression (MLR, PCR, PLS-R, 3-way PLS-R)
  • Prediction from PCR, PLS-R and 3-way PLSR models
  • Clustering (K-Means)
  • Classification (SIMCA, PLS-DA)
  • ANOVA and Response Surface ANOVA
  • Validation options: Leverage Correction, Cross-Validation (freely choose number of samples per segment), Test Set
  • Variable Scaling options: Scaling is free on each variable. Suggested options: Auto-scaling, Constant, Passify
  • Interaction and Square terms can be included in PCA, MLR, PCR and PLS-R models


  • Combines ease-of- use with comprehensive DoE and MVA methods
  • Supports various instrument file formats and offers numerous data preprocessing capabilities
  • Ensures greater ROI by reducing the number of experiments required
  • Generates models that can be used for on-line prediction and classification in CAMO Software's Online Unscrambler Predictor (OLUP) & Online Unscrambler Classifier (OLUC)
  • Discovers patterns and relationships in data using the powerful methods of PCA, PLSR analysis & DoE capabilities
  • Has easy- to- upload data features and point-and-click ability that allow users to focus on interpretation of results rather than statistics
  • Is non-industry specific and has multiple applications within a variety of data intensive organizations
  • Facilitates data import, easy cut and paste transferability of various views, making it easier to develop reports and interpret results, competently

Industry Application Areas & Usage
