Nix unveils portable Spectro 2 spectrophotometer


Nix Sensor has announced the unveiling of the Nix Spectro 2 professional-grade, durable spectrophotometer engineered to capture spectral data across 31 channels. The powder-coated aluminum spectrophotometer is small, portable, easy to use, and compatible with Pantone, RAL, and NCS, the company reports. Optical microscopes are routinely found in a wide variety of laboratories, but they are often only used as a magnifying glass to allow the user to better see the sample. However, even an inexpensive microscope can be upgraded to do so much more! By sending the light from the microscope to a spectrometer, many different types of spectra can be measured with a much smaller sampling area than is capable with a standard bench-top spectroscopy tool, such as transmission, reflection, fluorescence, and other types of optical emission.
