Galaxy Scientific Inc. is pleased to announce the latest release of their software suite, Spectral Sage 4. This major upgrade to the software emphasizes features that streamline the user experience and enable new capabilities aimed at producing better results when converting near-infrared spectra into actionable results. When paired with any of Galaxy’s QuasIR™ series FT-NIR spectrometers, Spectral Sage 4 is both powerful and easy-to-use.

Spectral Sage 4 includes the following new features:

  • Unified User Interface – What were separate software packages have now been fully integrated into the core user interface of Spectral Sage. In addition, elements such as buttons, menus, and dialogs have been modernized. Improvements to the graphing functions now allow a simple mouse-over to display the name of the spectrum.
  • Stray Light Correction –Spectral Sage 4 offers the ability to remove stray light from spectra through an automatic operation. As stray light from sampling cups, windows, or other sample-specific characteristics can affect chemometric models, removing it allows for obtaining the best results.
  • Background Expiration – Users can now set background spectra to expire after a specified period, ensuring that operators are collecting the best quality data.
  • Sample Collection Tab – This enables the collection of reference spectra within the Spectral Sage EZ application. Furthermore, the administration tools have been updated with an improved database and management of configured Products and Groups. Additionally, all reports can now be saved as PDF, DOC, XLS, and TXT.

Galaxy Scientific Inc. is specialized in the development and marketing of innovative, high-performance portable analytical instrumentation. We have developed a new generation of high-performance field portable platforms which combine next-generation optics with advanced software algorithms providing breakthrough solutions to the most challenging point-of-need applications. Samples can then be analyzed in the field, rather than be taken off-site to separate laboratories.
