Cloud-enabled FTIR spectroscopy
All Nicolet FTIR spectrometers now allow you to store, share and interpret spectral data anytime, anywhere and on any device. Researchers, lab technicians, educators and their students can all use their Thermo Fisher Connect account, powered by the Thermo Fisher Cloud, to gain easy access to their data with the OMNIC Anywhere App.
  • Export, view and share data – view your Nicolet .spa spectral files, label spectral peaks, and correct spectral baseline all in the OMNIC Anywhere App on your PC, Apple computer, Android or iOS device
  • Add more storage space – start with 10 GB of storage for free, and then scale up storage as needed for a nominal fee. You can store OMNIC .spa files as well as other files (e.g., report documents, .xls, etc.) to your Thermo Fisher Connect account
  • Secure your data – Thermo Fisher Connect uses Amazon Web Service™, the industry-leading security and data protection cloud-computing platform – so no lost or stolen data
