Photopette® Turbidity

Supports 570 nm & 850 nm

The Photopette® Turbidity UV-Vis spectrophotometer is an easy to use device dedicated for turbidity measurements at 570 nm and 850 nm wavelengths and compatible to USEPA 180.1 and ISO 7027. Its ideal for the food & beverage industry, at the wastewater treatment plant and for environmental monitoring.

The Photopette® Turbidity meter is an ultra portable handheld device controlled by an app on a smartphone or tablet. Its splash water proof and can be used outdoors in the plant or field. Environmental turbidity measurements can be overlaid with google maps. Its long lasting lithium ion battery allows more than 20,000 measurements without recharging.

The Photopette system is designed for a sampling free workflow, thus increases efficiency and decreases the risk of cross-contamination.

CuveTip® cavity

The common workflow in spectrophotometry is that samples are transferred into a cuvette and the cuvette is then placed into a spectrophotometer. The Photopette however simplifies this workflow. The user picks up a CuveTip with the device and directly immerses the tip into the sample. The sample solution then enters a cavity of the CuveTip and with a click on the device or app the measurement value is displayed on the app. There is No sample transfer!
