OriginLab rolled out Origin 8.1, which is a Windows-based analysis and graphing software. Origin 8.1 is dieal for scientists, engineers, researchers, and analysts who need to graph, analyze, and make professional presentations of the data. One of the most significant additions to Origin 8.1 is the batch processing feature. Origin users can now automate repetitive data-handling by simply creating a custom analysis template, and then using the batch processing tool to apply that template to a group of files. The tool then generates a summary report using settings saved in the template.
