Fluoracle Software | Edinburgh Instruments

Fluoracle Software

Fluoracle® controls all FS and FLS series of steady state and time-resolved spectrometers and features a straightforward design concept:

“to focus on all modern photoluminescence spectroscopy applications whilst providing a user-friendly interface with ‘ready to publish’ outputs”

Fluoracle Software

Fluoracle® is an exceptional software package specifically written to handle data and instrumentation in fluorescence spectroscopy.

Fluoracle is the successor of the proven F980 software from our FLS980 product line and it is this that provides the backbone to Fluoracle.

Whether you select a basic spectral scanning version of one of our spectrometer systems, or you go for an advanced version that includes TCSPC lifetime measurements, or integrating sphere measurements, the software will provide all instrument options automatically, from data acquisition to analysis and presentation.
