There is no such thing as a “one-size-fits-all” spectrophotometer.
- Benchtop instruments require samples to be portable and “presentable” to the measurement port
- Portable instruments let you take measurements at a store or in the field
- Specific models (d/0º, d/8º/ 45º/0º geometries) are tailored to the needs of particular applications and sample types
- Repeatability and inter-instrument agreement vary by instrument type
That’s why it’s so important to work with a reputable supplier who can guide you to an instrument with the features and capabilities appropriate to your situation. Datacolor also has an online tool to help compare the features of our various benchtop choices.
