The GRAMS Suite also offers a special stand-alone module for using calibrations in a “predict-only” mode. IQ Predict allows users to load one or more spectra and predict them against any PLSplus/IQ calibration model. This module is ideal for deploying calibrations to multiple systems where the operators are not chemometrics experts and do not need the power of the full PLSplus/IQ module.
IQ Predict uses the GRAMS ActiveApp™ interface which allows specially written modules to operate inside the GRAMS/AI application, as stand-alone programs, or embedded within other third party software applications. IQ Predict can also automatically detect and interface with any My Instrument module installed on the same PC, allowing users to directly apply calibrations and get results immediately as spectra are collected for new samples.
IQ Predict can be configured to operate in “auto-predict” mode which provides a simplified interface which is ideal for routine analyses, repetitive measurements, quality control and fieldwork. It can also operate in a fully interactive mode which provides a full-featured user interface with complete manual control for loading, collecting and predicting spectra.
The IQ Predict ActiveApp module can be used to apply PLSplus/IQ calibrations to spectral data from within GRAMS/AI or as a separate stand-alone application.
