Clearly arranged icons instead of complicated lists

With the brand new spectrophotometer NANOCOLOR® VIS II MACHEREY-NAGEL revolutionizes your daily laboratory work, combining a premium high-tech instrument with outstanding usability. Work with this innovative photometer like your smartphone or tablet and enjoy the intuitive, icon-based menu. The clearly arranged and high-resolution touch screen display makes your daily measurement routine a real pleasure.

Powerful technology behind the scenes

The NANOCOLOR® VIS II impresses with high-class technology and optics. The wavelength resolution of 0.1 nm enables a new level of precision, for example for the monitoring of high-resolution scans. Internal stray light is reduced to < 0.1 %, resulting in extremely accurate measuring signals. The optical setup and the clever technology enables measurements without protective cover, a big advantage for seamless lab processes.

The all-rounder for all requirements

As a complete spectrophotometer, the NANOCOLOR® VIS II meets all requirements of your daily laboratory work. It comes with the well-known barcode technology for NANOCOLOR® tube tests, but it also offers the possibility of extensive CIE conform color measurements. In addition to turbidity measurements, the device offers comprehensive and free of charge brewery analysis according to MEBAK. The NANOCOLOR® VIS II reduces the complexity of your daily laboratory work with easy menu guidance and icon-based procedures of the tube tests stored in the instrument. The clear result window enables an easy assignment of sample information to the measurement result. The step-by-step menu guidance for the calibration of special methods creates a simple entry level into user specific analytics even for unexperienced users.

Your next audit will be a breeze

Quality is of high importance to MACHEREY-NAGEL. Thus, the NANOCOLOR® VIS II is equipped with extensive quality control features. Besides the integrated, f.o.c. inspection equipment monitoring, the device offers a variety of quality control functions like standard measurements, multiple determinations and dilution series. In this way the NANOCOLOR® VIS II provides easy to use control options which enable an efficient and exact internal quality control.
