Ocean Optics Overture Free Spectrometer Operating Software
Performs basic spectroscopy functions including absorbance, transmission and emission
Dunedin, FL (August 22, 2011) – Ocean Optics has expanded its software offerings with the launch of Overture, a free spectrometer operating platform for simple data and spectral collection. This more basic software is geared to users new to spectroscopy or those who do not require the more advanced features of Ocean Optics’ sophisticated SpectraSuite software.
For use with most all Ocean Optics spectrometers, Overture’s standard functions include absorbance, transmission and intensity modes. Integration time and other spectrometer operating parameters are controlled via an intuitive user interface with icons and setup wizards. The 32-/64-bit Windows compatible system allows users to manipulate how data is displayed using tools such as smoothing, snapshot and zoom, and permits simultaneous viewing of two graphs for comparison. A concentration wizard guides users through the process of measuring solutions absorbance at different concentrations, plotting a calibration curve and applying Beer-Lambert law to determine unknown concentrations.
Overture now comes standard with most Ocean Optics spectrometer purchases. Current spectrometer owners may download a free copy of Overture at http://www.oceanoptics.com/Products/overture.asp.
