Open Specy is free and open source thanks to our partners.

Looking for the classic version of OpenSpecy? Go to

  1. Upload a .zip, .csv, .0, .asp, .jdx, .spc, or .spa file to the upload file tab.
  2. Process your data using smoothing, derivative, baseline correction, flattening, range selection, and intensity adjustment.
  3. Identify your spectra using onboard reference libraries and/or AI
  4. Download your results
  5. For more details click the button below for the SOP or watch the detailed instructional videos.
