iC FBRM Software
Data Analysis Made Easy
iC FBRM™ delivers key information that helps users develop a strong understanding of their particle system dynamics, optimize experimental design, speed development time, and quickly identify and solve production issues. Intuitive report generation features combine data from multiple ParticleTrack™ experiments with process parameters (e.g. temperature, mixing, dosing) and produce professional reports with a click of the mouse.
Mechanisms for particle dimension and shape change can be understood and quantified with ParticleTrack using trended statistics, distributions, and inline images. iC FBRM software helps chemists and engineers distill information-rich data into valuable process understanding.
Innovative distribution display enhances the ability to simultaneously track changing particle dimensions on the fine and coarse tails of the particle distribution. Statistics for key samples are also quantified in a tabular view that aids in understanding process dynamics.
Optimize batch conditions in the laboratory or during scale-up to manufacturing. Drag, drop, and overlay distributions and trends from multiple time points and batches to target an endpoint particle distribution. Relate experimental conditions to particle system dynamics by importing process variables onto trended statistics.
Reduce Data Analysis Time
Save time by preloading desired statistics, reference distributions, and user-defined trends from a previous experiment using templates. Data analysis sessions are always saved, facilitating consistent data analysis, even with interruptions. A single mouse click creates a detailed report summarizing an entire iC FBRM experiment.
iC Suite Ecosystem
iC FBRM is a part of the iC Software Suite of experimental analysis and control applications supporting METTLER TOLEDO AutoChem best-in-class instruments. The iC Suite implements an approach similar to Microsoft Office, with each product tailored for its technology-specific requirements but all providing a similar intuitive user experience and effortless data exchange.
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.
iC FBRM Software FAQs
Is the iC FBRM software required to use a ParticleTrack instrument?
Yes, in order to configure and collect particle distribution data using a ParticleTrack instrument, the instrument must be connected to a computer running the iC FBRM software.
Can I use the iC FBRM software to analyze experimental data on another computer?
Yes, additional copies of iC FBRM software can be purchased. Instrument licenses allow full control and analysis of data from ParticleTrack instruments. Office licenses of iC FBRM that facilitate analysis and reporting for completed experiments only are also available at a discounted price.
How can I get iC FBRM experiment data into other systems such as my ELN or data warehouse?
iC FBRM experiment trend data can be copied and pasted into Excel or distribution data can be exported by the user into CSV files. For automatic data export, iC Data Center can be used to capture and process completed experiments for easy ingestion by other applications such as electronic lab notebooks or scientific data management systems.
Can I show data from other iC instruments in iC FBRM?
All software in the iC Suite can easily share data in real time. Trends from one iC or iControl application can be added to iC FBRM (and vice versa) at any time and will dynamically update. Data from third party applications can also be shown in the iC FBRM trend viewer by using the iC Data Share or iC OPC UA utilities.
What are the computer requirements to run iC FBRM software?
iC FBRM will run on Microsoft Windows and is compatible with most mid- to high-performance laptops or workstations. Please see the iC FBRM datasheet for specific requirements.
How can I be sure to get the latest version of iC FBRM available?
Stay up-to-date by ensuring that your iC Software is covered by a Software Care subscription. Users with a Software Care subscription will be proactively notified by email of any new releases and will have access to the downloads and licenses for any new versions released during their contract term.
iC software maintenance is included in the Software Care Standard offering. For additional enterprise-level features ask your METTLER TOLEDO representative about an iC Site License.
