Vernier Spectral Analysis®

Collect, analyze, and share spectrometer data with our free app for ChromeOS™, iOS, Android™, Windows®, and macOS™.

  • Windows
  • Mac

Our free Spectral Analysis app makes it easy to incorporate spectroscopy into your biology and chemistry labs. Using the app, students can collect a full spectrum and explore topics such as Beer’s law, enzyme kinetics, and plant pigments.

The user-friendly interface walks the students through the data-collection process and includes analysis features such as curve fitting and data interpolation.

See sample experiment downloads, a list of supported instrumentation, and instructional screencasts.


  • Follow on-screen instructions for simplified Beer’s law or kinetics data collection.
  • Collect full spectrum absorbance or % transmittance data in less than one second.
  • Analyze data with built-in analysis tools, including data interpolation and curve fittings.
  • Determine the order of kinetics reaction with the calculated columns function.
  • Understand color transmission using the color strip shown on full spectrum graphs.
  • Use Advanced Full Spectrum Mode to teach students the direct relationship between absorbance and % transmittance or observe a Stokes shift.
