iC Software Suite
From Experimental Data to Actionable Information
iC software integrates the entire experimental workflow making it simple to visualize, interpret and report results. A unified approach supports lab-to-plant applications for spectroscopy, particle system characterization, precise reactor control, and calorimetry.
In each iC product, powerful algorithms and graphical representations are combined with a simple user interface enabling scientists to gain deeper process understanding with less effort.
Analysis and Control Software—Redefined
Intuitive and Intelligent
Simple yet powerful software allows consistent control and measurement of reactions and related processes. Automated data capture plus a simple user experience reduces human errors and training cost while ensuring that important information will not be lost.
One Click Analytics™
Easy-to-use analysis, reporting and data management tools allow graphics, videos and presentations to be created with the click of a button. Critical process knowledge can be shared easily, allowing project teams to make informed decisions and reach a consensus quickly.
Application Specific Workflow
Built to control and analyze chemical reactions and related unit operations like crystallizations, iC software guides users through the optimal data interpretation process. Analysis specific tools enable faster data analysis – leading to increased R&D productivity.
Automated Data Capture and Preparation
An estimated 85% of lab data is lost because it is not transferred from lab instruments or is not recorded at all. iC Data Center software enables knowledge management across each organization and improves regulatory compliance by ensuring all experiment data is automatically captured from local instruments, prepared into structured formats, and shared on an electronic lab notebook (ELN) or data management system. With an easy-to-use interface for configuration, iC Data Center means users spend more time on chemistry and less time moving files, finding missing data, or converting data into other formats.
Modernize Your Lab with Digitalization
A digital enterprise focuses on staying ahead in the race to operational excellence and realizing the benefits of the digital revolution. A key part of this journey is the data – the foundation of any digital enterprise. Digitalization enables organizations to move from being data-driven, where data is "just" used to better understand experiments, to being knowledge-driven, where data supports the creation of institutional knowledge.

iC Software Care
Software Care is a subscription software maintenance plan. It was developed as the direct result of customer feedback and is designed to provide subscribers with the opportunity to always have the latest version of the software while paying significantly less over the lifetime of their instrument.
iC software maintenance is included in the Software Care Standard offering. For additional enterprise-level features ask a representative about an iC Site License.
iC Software FAQs
Is iC Software included when I purchase the instrument?
This depends on the instrument. Analytical instruments such as ReactIR, ReactRaman, and EasyViewer require an iC instrument software package on a PC to control the system and capture and analyze data. Reactor systems like the EasyMax or RC1mx come with a built-in touchscreen interface that can be used to control the instrument, however, iControl PC software can also be purchased for more advanced control.
Are trial versions available for the software?
Yes, each software product comes with an automatic 30-day trial license when first installed on a new computer. If you are interested in obtaining a trial copy of one of the iC software applications, please send us a message!
What operating systems are supported by the iC Software suite?
The iC Suite runs on the Microsoft Windows operating system. Current software versions all support Windows 10. Some specific products, like iC Process and iC Data Center, can also be run on Windows Server. For specific details on what an iC application supports, please see the datasheets available on the respective product pages, or simply contact us and we can provide guidance on the best product for you.
What options are available for sharing experiment data with other software applications?
There are several ways that data collected by iC-controlled instruments can share with third-party systems. In real-time, trend values can be exchanged using the industry standard OPC UA protocol or can be exported from certain iC products into file formats such as SPC or CSV.
iC Data Center can be used to capture completed experiments in one location, prepare data in useful file formats like Excel or XML, and share data with colleagues, with a data warehouse, or with electronic lab notebook (ELN) applications.
