Suite SIX is the newest version of WITec’s integrated software environment for instrument control and data analysis
It features an intuitive operating concept for all WITec instruments, including Raman imaging, AFM and SNOM microscopes of the alpha300 series, as well as RISE (Raman-SEM) and cryoRaman systems. Other imaging modes, such as profilometry and time-correlated single photon counting (TCSPC) for fluorescence lifetime imaging (FLIM) or antibunching experiments, are also supported.
WITec Suite SIX enables researchers to move from setup to results with unprecedented ease. One integrated software manages the entire experiment, from initial settings and data acquisition through post-processing. Basic and advanced data analysis features accelerate the generation of high-quality images. The modular architecture of WITec’s software and hardware lets users quickly configure their instrument for each specific task.
Experimental setup and data acquisition is made easy with Control SIX. The user interface changes automatically depending on the measurement mode, making relevant settings easily accessible. Control SIX also includes all features of the Project SIX package for on- and offline data evaluation and post processing.
WITec Project offers an extensive toolbox of data evaluation and processing functions. Its multi-user licensing concept allows the installation on an arbitrary number of computers. All features of Project SIX+ are included as demo versions.
Project SIX+ is a software extension for advanced data evaluation and processing. A variety of intelligent algorithms and tools facilitate specialized, expert-level analysis and visualization. Project SIX+ is available as single user license and all features are included as demo versions in Project SIX.
The multi-user management feature in Suite SIX enables site administrators to determine the instrument functionalities and data access rights associated with each user account by defining and evolving group or individual profiles.
Each user’s rights to access, modify and process data can be defined individually. Additionally, user groups can be created based on positions, roles, departments, training levels or other criteria. Each group can be associated with its specific set of rights settings, which determine the available system features and data access rights and permissions. Assigning individual users to a user group will align them with its access rights.
The possibility to individually control rights and permissions ensures data integrity and thus assists industrial facilities in their efforts to comply with good practice (GxP) guidelines and regulations such as the US Food and Drug Administration’s (FDA) 21 CFR Part 11. This is especially important for customers working in strictly regulated areas, such as pharmaceutical research and development.
Suite SIX was developed as a convenient and intuitive platform for microscope operation and data analysis. A range of features streamlines the experimental workflow.
Individual instrument configurations for specific tasks (for example: laser and spectrometer selection, camera settings, and more) can be defined, saved, and then reloaded with one click. This streamlines recurring experiments and high-throughput applications and lets even novice users perform measurements reproducibly.
The handheld EasyLink controller is a tactile and intuitive interface for operating automated microscope parts such as motorized stages, the objective turret, illumination, autofocus and many others.
The Software Wizard accelerates and simplifies investigations by guiding the user through all steps of data post-processing and image generation.
TrueOrigin is WITec’s portable coordinate system for easily locating the same sample area on different microscopes. It maps a sample in relation to prominent features on the specimen itself or its holder. This expedites the correlation of data acquired by multiple techniques from the same position, even when the sample is moved between instruments. Imported images recorded with an external camera or a different microscope can be used for sample navigation. TrueOrigin is compatible with the Shuttle & Find system from ZEISS.
The intuitive software interface and the smart access options (e.g. drag and drop actions) simplify and expedite investigations.
