VISIONlite™ Spectrophotometer Software

Thermo Scientific™ VISIONlite™ 5 Software enhances the capabilities of our stand-alone Visible and UV-Visible spectrophotometers. The software enables you use your spectrophotometer to its fullest potential, displaying and reporting experimental and analytical results with ease.


Thermo Scientific™ VISIONlite™ ColorCalc software is a powerful stand-alone software package that adds the ability to perform numerous color calculations for a variety of applications. The software records the required transmission or reflectance spectrum and automatically performs calculations using the recorded data.

VISIONlite Software enhancements include:


  • Peak pick to identify and label wavelength peaks or valleys
  • Overlay spectra for visual comparison
  • Import, save or export data in native or CSV format for easy archiving and reporting
  • Auto scaling of data plus simple zoom controls for detailed examination of spectra 

Rate:  For SPECTRONIC 200 and GENESYS 30, measure multi-cell kinetics in parallel or serial mode

  • Automatic enzyme activity calculation
  • Automatic data storage plus import or export your data in CSV format
  • Measure up to 100 samples in a single data set 


  • Measure at one or multiple wavelengths
  • Apply factors and equations to your data to generate results directly
  • Addition, subtraction, ratio and baseline correction options
  • Display results with units from a menu or define your own custom unit
  • Run standard bio-tests using the preprogrammed protein and DNA methods
  • Save or print results as a report, or export data in CSV format to use in a template

Quant:  More standards and non-linear curve fitting options offer greater confidence and accuracy than can be accomplished under local control on Thermo Scientific SPECTRONIC 200 and GENESYS 30 Spectrophotometers

  • Choose from 11 pre-programmed reporting units or define your own
  • Apply dilution factors in software to allow you to keep data for all your samples in range without doing off-line calculations
  • Automatic data saving for peace of mind
  • Save or print your results as a report, or export data in CSV format to use in your own template

Performance Verification:

  • Select from the range of available Performance Verification tests that is customized to your instrument’s specifications
  • VISIONlite 5 will prompt you to present the correct reference materials in order, and then print a complete report for your compliance file

Accessory control:
Whether your experiment requires automation to enhance sample throughput or thermostatting to preserve precious biological samples, VISIONlite 5 provides full control of the required accessories.

VISIONlite ColocCalc Software:

  • Full spectrum color scales and data reporting:  Record the required spectra in transmittance or reflectance and calculates color values
  • Application-specific color series: Pt-Co/APHA, whiteness, EP color, wine, etc.
  • Sample thickness transformation allows for the correction for actual sample thickness and front surface reflection effects based upon a single value, the material's refractive index, or a full surface reflectance spectrum

Mathematical calculations and customization
VISIONlite ColorCalc Software has the ability to perform configurable or custom calculations and to store and present your custom-configured methods on the calculations menu.
