What is a Scan?
July 21, 2015

Scans, are the action of using your SCiO Sensor to create a spectral fingerprint of a Sample.

Each scan produces a slightly different spectral fingerprint. Even when the same sample is scanned more than 1 time.

Scans are the building blocks of the SCiO experience. Multiple scans of the same material make up Samples. Samples are then grouped into Data Collections and from Data Collection, we build molecular sensing models.

The following SCiO Lab Mobile screen shows a single scan, which is one of three scans of a Sample of a Calcite gemstone. The current scan is represented by dark blue on the graph, while all of the other scans of the data collection are light grey.
