    LightScan software was developed by Sarspec to be simple to work with, but at the same time to be efficient and powerfull. Within a few minutes users can get results without complex settings. The LightScan software is divided into a  Spectrum tab and Application Modules for Absorbance, Transmittance, Reflectance and Fluorescence. Each one of these modules has one Calibration Module. The Kinetics module is specific for time measurements where it’s possible to select a single and multi-wavelength acquisition for any of the modules mentioned.

    LightScan+ software includes all the available features in LightScan and some more specific to allow high speed data acquisition for the spectrometers FLEX+ range. It provides access to parameters such as exposure time, line time, electronic shutter, and low noise mode that allows optimization of time and sensitivity settings for optimum results in ultra fast measurements. Also available is the trigger control for synchronization with external devices and short time events.

    Full control in the Spectrum Tab

    Once the spectrometer is connected, the Spectrum Tab is available for setting the operation parameters. On this main window it is possible to fully control the spectrometer by setting the Integration Time, Gain, Smoothing, Average and Triggering Functions for synchronization with external devices. The spectrum tab offers also the possibility of raw spectra acquisition with a single-click and real-time comparison with stored spectra from previous measurements. 

    Work only with the necessary information in each Application Module

    The application modules were designed to perform specific analyses based on conditions and the data acquired on the Spectrum Tab. For the Absorbance, Transmittance, Reflectance, and Fluorescence modules, LightScan offers a simple and intuitive interface where results can be obtained, without any initial setup or calibration. There are two additional modes when working with Analysis, the calibrated mode where a previous calibration is used for quantitative analysis, and the uncalibrated mode where the result is obtained for a specific wavelength without any previous calibration.

    Perform time measurements with Kinetics mode

    The Kinetics module allows acquiring the intensity at one or more wavelengths simultaneously in a period of time that is defined by the user. The Kinetics module offers one of the best advantages of the CCD technology allowing full spectra, single or multi-wavelength to be measured as a function of time. This module is quite useful when following chemical reactions with the quantification of reagents and products using Absorbance results.

    Powerfull quantitative analysis tool

    For all modules are available one powerful calibration tool where it is possible to perform a calibration procedure through the measurement of standards for single or multi-wavelength. The calibration tool also allows the creation of automatic reports, where is combined all the information of the corresponding file.
