Spectrophotometer CM-5

Product Code: CM-5

The CM-5 is a very versatile bench-top spectrophotometer to measure the colour of solid, pasty granular and liquid samples either in reflectance or transmittance. The top-port concept, offering various aperture sizes, allows measurement of almost any kind of samples. The CM-5 is thus the perfect all-rounder laboratory instrument for applications such as Flavours & Fragrances, Foods, Chemicals, Pharmaceuticals and Plastics.

Versatility for a wide range of Applications

Thanks to the unique concept and a wide range of special accessories, the CM-5 can handle almost any kind of samples in solid, granule, pasty or liquid form.

Aperture size from 3 – 30 mm, different Petri-dishes, different cell paths and a large transmittance chamber offer a unique flexibility.

 

Large colour LCD

The large colour LCD is easy to read and can display measurement data numerically and graphically or even just as PASS/FAIL judgments.

 

Wizard for on-screen operation guidance

The wizard function show intuitive on-screen guidance for users for instrument set-up.

 

USB storage of settings and data

Individual user set-ups as well as target and measurement data can be easily stored on USB memory stick to allow multi-user capability.
