Analyze IQ Limited, producers of innovative spectroscopic analysis software, and Ocean Optics Inc., the industry leader in miniature spectroscopy, have today announced a partnership under which Ocean Optics will market and sell the Analyze IQ software suite.

Analyze IQ Limited (Galway, Ireland), producers of innovative spectroscopic analysis software, and Ocean Optics Inc. (Dunedin, Florida), an industry leader in miniature spectroscopy, have today announced a partnership under which Ocean Optics will market and sell the Analyze IQ software suite.

The Analyze IQ software will allow Ocean Optics’ customers to perform detailed analysis of molecular spectroscopy data. It is particularly designed for working with complex mixtures, including qualitative analyses such as materials verification, and quantitative analyses such as estimation of concentrations of components in mixtures. An extensive library of Raman spectra is also available.

"As inventors of the world's first miniature spectrometer, Ocean Optics has a long history of delivering efficient and cost-effective solutions of the highest quality," says Dr. Michael Madden, CEO of Analyze IQ Ltd. "We are pleased they are working with us to add value to their modular and turn-key Raman offerings."

Dr. Jorge Macho, Director, Technical Sales and Service, Ocean Optics, Inc. comments: “We believe that the Analyze IQ software suite is the ideal complement to our Raman and other molecular spectroscopy software and will be of great value to your customers, as it combines high performance, sophisticated analysis techniques, and ease of use.”

The Analyze IQ product suite that Ocean Optics will resell includes:

• Analyze IQ Lab, a patent-protected software package for chemometric analysis of Raman and other molecular spectroscopy data, that allows examination of spectra, model-based analysis of spectra, generation of new analytical models

• Analyze IQ Spectra Manager, a spectral database and data management package that allows users to easily manage a library of spectra

• Analyze IQ Raman Library, a carefully curated library of 1870 Raman spectra of lab materials and mixtures, including the exact composition of each material, along with all associated data.
