SigmaPlot - the Best Windows Graphing Package available today

What can SigmaPlot do for you?

Work Smarter with Sigmaplot

SigmaPlot is an easy-to-use technical graphing and data analysis software package for scientists and engineers who need to produce defensible research and create exact, publication-quality graphs for technical publications, presentations or the web. Work smarter, not harder, with the award-winning interface and intuitive wizard technology that revolutionizes what researchers can accomplish on their own with SigmaPlot 12.

SigmaPlot software helps you quickly create exact graphs

SigmaPlot graphing software from SYSTAT takes you beyond simple spreadsheets to help you show off your work clearly and precisely. With SigmaPlot, you can produce high-quality graphs without spending hours in front of a computer. SigmaPlot offers seamless Microsoft Office integration, so you can easily access data from Microsoft Excel spreadsheets and present your results in Microsoft PowerPoint® presentations.

Graphing software that makes data visualization easy

Graph creation starts with SigmaPlot's award-winning interface. Take advantage of industry-standard menu design, menu toolbars, right mouse button support and graph preferences. Select the graph type you want to create from the Graph Toolbar's easy-to-read icons. The interactive Graph Wizard leads you through every step of graph creation. You get compelling, publication-quality charts and graphs in no time. SigmaPlot offers more options for charting, modeling and graphing your technical data than any other graphics software package.
Compare and contrast trends in your data by creating multiple axes per graph, multiple graphs per page and multiple pages per worksheet. Accurately arrange multiple graphs on a page using built-in templates or your own page layouts with SigmaPlot's WYSIWYG page layout and zoom features.

Customize every detail of your charts and graphs

SigmaPlot offers the flexibility to customize every detail of your graph. You can add axis breaks, standard or asymmetric error bars and symbols; change colors, fonts, line thickness and more. Double-click on any graph element to launch the Graph Properties dialog box. Modify your graph, chart or diagram further by pasting an equation, symbol, map, picture, illustration or other image into your presentation.

Publish your charts and graphs anywhere

Create stunning slides, display your graphs in reports or further customize your graphs in drawing packages. Save graphs for publication in a technical journal, article or paper with SigmaPlot's wide range of graphic export options. Presenting and publishing your results has never been easier - or looked this good. Create customized reports with SigmaPlot's Report Editor or embed your graphs in any OLE container - word processors, Microsoft PowerPoint or graphics program. Just double click your graph to edit directly inside your document. Quickly send your high-resolution graphs online to share with others.

Share high-quality graphs and data on the Web

Export your graphs as high-resolution, dynamic Web pages - not simple GIF or JPEG files. Viewers can explore data used to create graphs and zoom, pan or print images at full resolution directly from a Web Browser. Automatically generate active Web objects from your graphs or embed the objects within other Web pages.

21 CFR 11

21 CFR Part 11 is the United States Food and Drug Administration's (FDA) requirement for electronic record keeping. These are the rules under which an electronic document can be considered equivalent to a paper document. In part, this includes software validation, password protection of data and macros, time-stamped audit trail capability, and various password and security measures.

SigmaPlot already satisfies the requirement for in-house validation using manual testing. Also the macro language provides the mechanism for repeatable "hands-off" analysis of instrumentation data.

SigmaPlot from Version 9.0 and above have the capability of importing data and running SQL queries from various ODBC-compliant databases. The new version also offers the ability to password protect notebooks for submittal to the FDA or other Government agencies that require adherence to security guidelines
