Thermo Fisher Scientific ( reached an agreement with Aspectrics Inc. ( to include Thermo Scientific GRAMS spectroscopy software in Aspectrics’ new Encoded Photometric Near Infrared (EP-NIR) process analyzer.

The GRAMS software allows spectroscopists to visualize, process, and manage data from FT-IR, NIR, Raman, UV-Vis, Fluorescence, NMR, and hyphenated instruments manufactured by multiple vendors. It interfaces with more than 150 instruments, including Thermo Scientific spectroscopy and chromatography products. The software’s use of open standards supports third-party use in both regulated and unregulated environments.
