CPACT is pleased to announce the release of Spectral Shooter
Version 1. It is available to all CPACT members at https://www.cpact.com/Members-Homepage/Software-Downloads.
Spectral Shooter is a standalone software package designed for
handling spectral data (e.g. infrared, Raman, etc.). It provides an easy
to use graphical user interface to several novel chemometric algorithms
developed by CPACT. Spectral Shooter also includes standard techniques,
so that they can be combined with or compared against CPACT algorithms within
one software package.
Included within Version 1 will be the following features:
Partial least squares (PLS) regression (including the capability
to combine PLS with various spectral pre-processing options).
Loading Space Standardization (LSS), a CPACT algorithm for
correction of temperature induced spectral changes.
A recent webinar on an overview of Spectral Shooter and a demo
of the above features can be found at https://www.cpact.com/Members-Homepage/Webinars/Webinar/catid/270.
Coming soon! Spectral Shooter will be
progressively updated to include further CPACT algorithms. Version 2
(expected August 2020) will also include multiplicative effects modelling (MEM)
which can provide accurate predictions from spectral data in the presence of
scattering effects (e.g. from powders or slurries). Later versions of
Spectral Shooter will incorporate several CPACT tools for calibration transfer,
allowing models built on one instrument/scale to be used with data acquired on
a new instrument/scale without having to preform re-calibration.
