Is your spectrophotometer software
intended for pharmaceutical and other chemical applications? Does it
include functions you never use while lacking those you need? Is it
difficult to export data, problematical to use NIST standards, arduous
or impossible to automate, cumbersome, or all of the above?
Why do you have to train technicians
on dissimilar software for different instruments, even those
from the same manufacturer? Are you supposed to trash older instruments
just because manufacturers no longer provide software support?
You don't have to use the software that
came 'free' with your instrument. You have a choice:
Besides the fact that it's designed for optics, it works with diverse
instruments including Lambda 9, Lambda 40, Lambda 950 (URA), Cary 500,
Ocean Optics, Zeiss, PE 983 and Spectrum GX!
Note: FilmStar MEASURE was developed with
the cooperation of PerkinElmer, Varian, Ocean Optics and Zeiss. They
realize the value of software alternatives. Isn't it time you evaluated
the true cost of 'free' software?
