Two computer programs were designed for helping in library handling and microbial identification by means of their infrared spectra. The program 'Transform' runs in the IR Data Manager environment and produces ASCII files containing transformed data from infrared absorbance spectra. The program 'WinSpectra' is written in Visual Basic v. 3.0. It imports the ASCII files created with 'Transform', and is able to handle, analyse and identify them by their mathematical comparison with a library of microbial spectra. Both programs run in graphical, menu-driven interface (GEM and MS Windows, for IBM-PC compatibles, with extensive on-line help.
