Umetrics has released a new version of its SIMCA multivariate data analysis software for scientists and engineers. The upgraded version 13 offers end-users added functionality and improvements such as a new ribbons interface that provides added flexibility for multivariate data analysis.
Other added features include a new plot library; multiple data sets in the same project; flexible handling of spectroscopic data and modeling of batch process data; improved OPLS and O2PLS algorithms that now support multi-block; and flexible data import from various data sources and multiple databases.
The direct communication between SIMCA 13 and MODDE 9 by exporting the scores from SIMCA to MODDE facilitates the use of MVA for fully or partly designed data sets as the total quality by design solution. SIMCA 13 software is 21 CFR part 11 compliant for use in the pharmaceutical and biotech industries.
