Pirouette – Comprehensive Chemometrics Modeling Software


Infometrix designed and developed the Pirouette software over 25 years ago to address the need for a tool to organize and understand complex data.  We focused primarily on analytical instruments, but soon found uses in areas as diverse as clinical applications, environmental monitoring, refinery quality control and database management.  The software balances the necessary algorithmic requirements with a simple user interface and is used for:

  • Data mining, visualization and organization;
  • Classification analysis to identify the origin of a sample;
  • Quantitative analysis to estimate a concentration or other property that is hard to measure more directly; and
  • Unmixing signals to identify and apportion the component parts of a mixture.

Pirouette 4.5, our most comprehensive chemometrics package, is designed specifically for Windows platforms.  A simple to use yet very powerful interface facilitates interacting with raw and processed data. Support for many common instrument and data exchange file formats make importing data painless. Thousands of subsets can be created from a single data file, allowing the user to exercise many different what-if scenarios without having to collect additional data. All calculated products are saved in a single file and can be retrieved and manipulated via the Object Manager, a unique data handling system.  Transfer of calibration options allow spectra to be adjusted appropriately for prediction with a model from another source. You can even run multiple instances of Pirouette to maximize efficiency.

Even the Pirouette demo has substantial capability. Load any supported file type, including Pirouette native format files, with results present. Use the visualization tools to evaluate your data or data sent to you from a Pirouette user. When you are ready to jump into multivariate analysis, purchase a license to unlock Pirouette’s algorithms.
