Photopette® Turbidity - Portable Turbidimeter

Photopette® Turbidity - Portable Turbidimeter

Supports 570 nm & 850 nm

The Photopette® Turbidity is an easy to use turbidimeter dedicated for measurements at 570 nm and 850 nm and compliant to USEPA 180.1 and ISO 7027. Its ideal for environmental monitoring, at the wastewater treatment plant and for food & beverage industry

The Photopette® Turbidity portable turbidimeter is controlled via an app run on a smartphone or tablet computer. With each measurement the software saves the GPS coordinates with the datasets. Being powered by a long lasting lithium battery makes it highly portable and convenient to use in the field.

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

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 your screen. This makes direct measurements without sample transfer possible.
