Full Name: KnowItAll ATR/IR and Raman ID Expert
Team: Bio-Rad Laboratories
Debut: Pittcon 2014
Field Position: All drug development and production environments requiring spectral identification functionality.
Skill Set: KnowItAll software offers comprehensive solutions for spectral analysis, identification, search, data management, and reporting. It supports multiple instrument vendor file formats and techniques (IR, Raman, NIR, NMR, MS, UV-Vis). KnowItAll ATR/IR ID Expert and Raman ID Expert offer new technologies that combine years of accumulated knowledge in the field of spectroscopy with advanced computational power to provide the fastest, most accurate answers possible to scientists identifying unknown infrared and Raman spectra.
• Combined with one of the world's largest spectral reference collections (over 1.4 million spectra), the software, helps chemists extract even greater knowledge from their spectral data
• Once an unknown spectrum is opened the software automatically performs single and multiple component searches as well as functional group analyses simultaneously and summarizes the results on a single screen to give a complete view of all possibilities for the unknown spectrum
• If there are problems with the user’s query spectrum, ID Expert has the spectral intelligence to identify these issues and suggest ways to fix them.
Regulatory Profile: Ready for cGMP and QbD compliant operations
Coach’s Notes: KnowItAll ATR/IR ID Expert and Raman ID Expert are new technologies that combine Bio-Rad’s years of accumulated knowledge in the field of spectroscopy with advanced computational power to provide the fastest, most accurate answers possible to scientists identifying unknown infrared and Raman spectra. “The spectral intelligence built into KnowItAll ATR/IR ID Expert combined with the world’s largest spectral reference collection provides the highest level of expertise to any scientist, whether a novice or power user,” says Bio-Rad general manager, Gregory M. Banik.
Scout’s Notes: This unique combination of spectral software combined with high-quality spectral reference data gives ID Expert users the most advanced technology now available for IR and Raman spectral identification.
