Nanocolor Advance

Home  /  Spectrophotometers  /  Nanocolor Advance


The spectrophotometer NANOCOLOR Advance combines the most important features of our portable compact photometer PF-12Plus and our high-precision spectrophotometer NANOCOLOR VIS II.

It provides precise and reliable measurement results in the daily laboratory routine and can also be used mobile due to its rechargeable battery. With its wavelength spectrum of 340 – 800 nm it allows the measurement of all photometrically evaluable test kits from MACHEREY-NAGEL. The NANOCOLOR Advance can therefore be used universally in the entire spectrum of water and wastewater analysis.
