Customized soft- and hardware solutions for your lab


One software platform to control all your devices

Move your lab to the next level!

For many years during our own work in academic research, our software modules for Brillouin light scattering spectroscopy and optical scanning microscopy have been used not only by us but have been also distributed to scientists in many labs around the world. Now, we are moving our technology to the next level by extending our scope towards a comprehensive operating system for your lab – thaTEC:OS!

thaTEC:OS is an advanced software platform which allows you to control all the devices in your lab. Due to the simple, yet advanced structure using drag & drop, no programming skills are required - setting up and performing automated measurements never has been easier.

thaTEC:OS grows with your tasks: add or substitute equipment at an existing setup by plug and play. With our growing device library, you are ready to go from the beginning. Your device is not available or you need additional features? Just get in touch with us or go for it yourself using our programming template.


  • remote control from a central GUI: Control all your devices from a central and unified user interface! Acquire, store and visualize all your data coherently at one central spot!
  • process automation: Automatize your measurements and processes instantly via drag-and-drop. Define cross-device processes, reuse or adjust previous experimental scenarios in a few moments - no programming needed!
  • fully extendable: thaTEC:OS is not a software for the automation of a specific scenario – it is a general solution to accompany you with all your scientific ideas! You purchased a new device or want to add or substitute equipment in an existing setup? thaTEC:OS grows with your tasks - just plug and play!

  • your device is missing?: Request your device!
  • you want to use your own software modules?: No problem, we offer our thaTEC:driver template which is fully compatible with thaTEC:OS to allow for the highest flexibility regarding you hard- and software.
  • visualization and evaluation: Overwhelmed by data sets from different devices scattered across your laboratory? thaTEC:OS is your central reference point. While you focus on the analysis, thaTEC:OS manages the details!
  • minimal training efforts: Use thaTEC:OS with the same look-and-feel for all your setups and experiments without programming skills. Learn at one machine, operate them all!
  • long-term solution: Science is a dynamic field with tremendous staff fluctuation. This drain of know-how complicates software development and maintenance. Contact us, if you are looking for a comprehensive long-term solution for your laboratory!
  • email notifiers: Stay up to date even when your are out of the lab. Receive email notifications about the measurement status to make sure you are back whenever your input is needed to start a new measurement or to analyze new data
  • Digital lab book: Keep track of all your measurements with the automatically generated searchable measurement database. Inspect the acquired data, the measurement protocols and check the status of all included devices at the time of the measurement.
