siMPle is a freeware for the fast detection of microplatic materials in environmental samples. Its algorithm compares the IR spectra of the sample with each reference spectra in the database, then assigns a material to them along with a probability score.
Score of each match
Size of particles
The program is developed at Aalborg University, Denmark, in collaboration with the Alfred Wegener Institute in Germany.
The software, its previous version, and the reference database can be downloaded on this page. There´s also included a small sample database for trying the software.
