Compact photometer PF-12
Maximum flexibility

  • More than 100 pre-programmed methods
  • Automatic wavelength adjustment
  • Backlit graphic display with intuitive user guidance
  • Data storage according to GLP
  • USB interface for data transfer, update and power supply

Experience flexibility

The compact photometer PF-12 is the logical result of a further development based on our very successful photometer PF-11. Adapted to our customers' requirements the PF-12 impresses with modern design and precise analytic. Pre-programmed tests, automatic wavelength adjustment and the intuitive user guidance allow fast and easy operation. Results are stored according to GLP and transferred safely to your PC with the included PC-software. The PF-12 offers an unrivaled flexibility with variable power supply via mains supply, standard and rechargeable batteries, PC and 12 V car adapter; photometric analysis of VISOCOLOR® ECO tests and NANOCOLOR® tube tests including all relevant parameters for water and waste water analysis and individual combination of tests in the new reagent cases.
