User Testimonials

See what our customers have to say!

This year, I had the honor and pleasure to organize the inaugural 2014 Gordon Research Seminar on Synaptic Transmission, a meeting organized by and for graduate students and post-docs. To ensure this meeting's success, I sought help from OriginLab. I chose to reach-out to OriginLab for several reasons: their analysis software is user-friendly (I've been using OriginPro now for more than 7 years); the staff is super nice and very resourceful (e.g. registering new products, answering questions related to upgrades, troubleshooting difficult types of analyses, etc); and, most importantly, they listen to their users (OriginLab welcomes user feedback so they can improve their products). Thankfully, OriginLab provided a very generous contribution to the Seminar that enabled graduate student speaker and discussion leader attendance. In addition, OriginLab offered an awesome incentive "prize" to be awarded to the most active and engaging participant at the meeting. The prize, a complete OriginPro 9.1 package, which is their most advanced analysis software to-date, was awarded to Theanne Griffith of Northwestern University! As an OriginPro 9.1 user, I can firmly state that Theanne and others will be pleasantly surprised by the improved software features which now include new graph types, analyses, time saving options, as well as a host of statistical analyses. It has been a pleasure working with OriginLab, and I look forward to a long-lasting and productive relationship!

The OriginPro Student Version is a tool I use daily as I analyze my data and prepare to share both with colleagues and for publication. Even complex plots, such as contour plots, are made easy and quick to prepare. Origin presents my data professionally and is highly customizable without becoming burdensome or overwhelming. I recommend Origin to my peers at school, and to anyone looking for a better solution to plotting and analyzing their data.

I have used Origin for about 15 years. My primary field of work is in the analysis, simulation, and algorithm development of things that fly and crash into other things on purpose.
I use Origin to generate graphics for briefings and reports, and analyze flight test data. However, the main reason I have used Origin over the years is that although it is a sophisticated tool, it is simple to use.
Innovation using a computer is often an iterative process, which requires constant feedback. When designing algorithms used in any flight system, an iteration is often running a full up six degree-of-freedom simulation; the feedback is evaluating the simulation’s output, which is usually quite extensive.
To accomplish this in a practical way one must quickly visualize and analyze the output, which then facilitates the setup for the next iteration. This process requires a sophisticated tool, which is easy to use and does not become an end in itself, but ultimately becomes transparent to the user.
That’s why I use Origin.

When working with many data points, graphing is often the quickest way to qualify data and identify trends. With the Origin statistics gadget, it's also easy to pull quantitative information, such as mean and standard deviation, straight from a data plot. This lets me make better decisions about which data to select for more detailed analysis.

A heartfelt thank you to OriginLab for creating an enormously powerful scientific graphing program simple enough that a 12-year old middle school student can quickly and easily produce professional quality scientific graphs. A two time First Place winner of the Florida State Science and Engineering Fair and a two time national Finalist in the Broadcom MASTERS national science talent search, the OriginPro graphing software has been a key ingredient to my daughter's Science Fair success. At 13-years old, my daughter's research manuscript has been accepted for publication in a top tier peer-reviewed Environmental Science journal and OriginPro 8.6 will allow her to export the graphs in a wide variety of formats which can meet any publisher's requirements. Kudos to OriginLab for designing innovative and intuitive software that can span the needs of both a burgeoning young scientist like my daughter to a PhD expert in their field. It is hard to imagine that other products offer this extraordinary level of user versatility.

“I have been using Origin since 1991, and have found it to be the fastest and most efficient tool for creating graphics. The new version of OriginPro 8 adds additional statistical features that are extremely useful, as well as the ability to add Sparklines that allows me to see trends in data before formal graphs are made. This allows me to pick only the most important parameters to plot without getting bogged down in making many plots that I won't use in a final publication. In addition, the ability to have units and comments in the data sheets makes plotting much simpler.”

I work with single-channel electrical recordings (nanofluidics), where we often need to look at overall trends as well as rapid signal perturbations. Using Origin, I can rapidly import pClamp files and start analyzing data right away. It's easy to get a snapshot of the data, then zoom in and analyze specific events. When the analysis is done, Origin is also my choice for creating beautiful, publication-quality graphical displays.

    Boaz Vilozny - Postdoctoral Researcher

“I have used Origin since 1995. It was the quickest plotting and analysis program to learn to use. There were others I tried, who boasted of their capabilities, but would have required an investment of 4 weeks to achieve some level of expertise. I probably spent part of a week learning to plot in Origin.
I used Origin heavily for statistical analyses and for plotting the effects of solar radiation in space on glass covers for satellite solar cells. I especially liked the ability to embed a small plot within another.
If I were a better mathematician, I could use more of the many features of the program!
And, there is nothing I can imagine which cannot be accomplished in Origin.”

    Mr. John K. Murphy - Murphy Technical Services

“The work of a scientist heavily depends on graphic presentation and statistical analysis of data. For the past 10 years, I have used exclusively Origin to prepare figures for over 40 manuscripts that have been published in scientific journals with strict academic requirements.
Although there are other useful software packages, such as SlideWritePlus, SigmaPlot and MS Excel, I cannot envision my work without the help of OriginLab. Hence, I would like to thank the team that has created perhaps the most complete scientific software, as well as for the support they continue to provide.”

    Detcho A. Stoyanovsky, Ph.D. - University of Pittsburgh

“Origin 8 can now really augment LabVIEW's power. The drag-and-drop Origin sub-VIs that come with Origin 8 are simple and easy to use. With Origin's Analysis Templates it is now very simple to create a reusable application that acquires data from third-party instruments, and then passes the data for analysis and report generation to Origin. One can also get curve fit results back into LabVIEW to display in LabVIEW's charts and graphs on the fly. What's best is that this is all accomplished in a native LabVIEW environment.”

    James T. Gardner, Ph. D. - Chief Engineer, Environmental Instruments, Inc.

“Origin is the best software for data analysis and graphics, that I have ever used.”

    Septimiu (Tim) Balascuta - ASU

“If I had to pick three software packages to take to a desert island, Origin would be at the top of the list. Not only does Origin handle the most demanding curve fitting and data analysis tasks with ease, and makes superior publication quality graphs; it also has a built in C compiler that allows me to customize complex functions - a feature that has been crucial to my research. To top it off, Originlab has a knowledgeable and responsive technical support staff, second to none. I wholeheartedly recommend Origin.”

    Mark Kuzyk, Ph.D. - Regents Professor of Physics and Astronomy, Washington State University

“I was introduced to Origin 5 some time ago by my PhD adviser at LSU as he had standardized his research group on this application for all data analysis. I thank Origin and Dr. Soper for exposing me to this wonderful product. EVERY publication and patent that I have has benefited from my use of Origin. Time and time again, Origin has enabled me to produce publication quality graphical representations of complex data sets. Your attention to detail, timely updates, and malleable licensing structure has been truly great. Keep up the great work.
Thanks immensely.”

    Dr. André A. D. Adams - Center for Bio-Molecular Science and Engineering Naval Research Laboratory

“I have used Origin for many years. It gives me the ability to control every aspect of the graph I am creating. This flexibility combined with its statistical tools have made Origin an indispensable part of my daily work.”

    Scott Jackson, Ph.D. - Principal Scientist, North American Regulatory Strategy and Stewardship BASF Corporation

“I have been using Originlab as my preferred statistical program to analyze and prepare my fluorescence data for poster and article presentations.
