What's new in the latest version of OMNIC Paradigm software?

For a full list of new features and resolved issues, see the Release Notes.

General features

OMNIC Paradigm software now supports more file types

You can now import spectral data from other applications so you can more easily collaborate with colleagues and view your data in one place. The newly supported file types include the following:

  • Grams (*.spc)
  • JCAMP-DX (*.jdx)
  • Perkin-Elmer (*.sp)
  • Bruker (*.[0-9])
  • Jasco (*.jws)
  • TSV Text (*.tsv)

Enhancements for using OMNIC Paradigm software with Security Suite software

The new version of OMNIC Paradigm software supports a full audit trail for tagging, including tags created in workflows, supports showing multiple digital signatures in reports, and shows the database and security server hostnames in the system status information. We have also added a security policy in Security Administration software to allow you to buffer and save data.

The software now uses HTTPS

OMNIC Paradigm software now uses HTTPS instead of HTTP. This means that the data you send over the network is encrypted for improved security and privacy. This change also means that the first time you connect to a remote instrument, such as a Summit spectrometer on your network, you will be asked if you trust the instrument. This is expected.

OMNIC Paradigm Configuration Utility

The new OMNIC Paradigm Configuration Utility is used to set up and customize your SSL certificate for the software. This utility should be used only by administrators and should use only the default settings unless your organization’s policies require a change.

Time series measurements

Zoom in on profiles

You can now zoom in on the profile pane for a closer look at the profile. Right-click the profile and select zoom. Then, click and drag to draw a box and click in the box to zoom to that area. Double-click to return to the full profile.

Save interferograms with your time series measurements

You now have the option to save interferograms with the time series data. After setting your analysis type as Time Series, select More to view more settings. Saving interferograms will increase the size of the saved data.

Add comments and custom fields to time series measurements.

Now you can add comments and custom fields to time series data, just like you could with standard measurements previously. To add a comment or a custom field, select Time Series in the measurements pane of the dashboard and then select More to view details.

Import legacy time series measurements from OMNIC software

You can now import legacy Time Series files (files with a .srs file name extension), allowing you to work with your older OMNIC data in OMNIC Paradigm software.

Workflows and packages

New qualification workflows for the Nicolet iN5 microscope

OMNIC Paradigm software now supports a suite of qualification workflows for the Nicolet iN5 microscope.

Analyze peak areas with the Peak Analysis tile

The Peak Analysis tile now supports the Peak Area and Peak Area Ratio operations.


Support for the Nicolet iN5 Microscope

OMNIC Paradigm software now supports the Nicolet iN5 microscope. See the new Nicolet iN5 Microscope with OMNIC Paradigm software user guide for more information.

Apply atmospheric suppression after collecting data

You can now apply atmospheric suppression to your session data after finishing your measurement. Previously, you had to set this before measuring.

Live spectrum view shows interferogram minimum, maximum, and range values

The live spectrum view now shows the minimum and maximum voltage for the interferogram and the total difference or range.

Better filters and search with security

When finding saved sessions, you can now use security-related filters to find sessions more quickly. Before, you could do this with measurements and time series data but not with sessions.

The Live Spectrum pane shows a saturation warning

The Live Spectrum pane now shows a warning that the detector is saturated when the interferogram voltage is too high.

Use the RaptIR microscope as a right-side emission source

If your microscope is installed on the right-side of your spectrometer, you can now use it as emission source. Select right-side collimated as your source in the software.

The camera view available on the dashboard

We added the Camera View to the toolbar on the dashboard so that you can more easily view your sample before you start your session.

Added Roundness to particle analysis results

Particle analysis now shows a value for roundness in addition to the previous results.

Raman Module: Turn off the laser after a period of inactivity

When using the Raman module, you can now have the laser turn off automatically after a set period of inactivity. This can help protect your sample from accidental damage.

Raman module: The system will automatically cancel

If you open the accessory door or turn the laser off while collecting data, the system will now automatically cancel and will stop collecting.
