World-class solution for accurate, consistent, and reliable color and haze measurement of transparent liquid and solid sample types.

SKU: c193bdce007a Categories: , ,


State-of-the-art. And user friendly. Vista Spectrophotometer is the industry-leading color and haze measurement solution.

Determining the purity of raw materials ensures both safety and quality. Hunterlab’s Vista is the right instrumentation for quantifying the color range and meeting standards and regulations. Vista captures both visible-range transmission color, as well as haze with a single measurement, and exports data with ease in minutes.

Additional features include automated calibration, a spill resistant sample compartment, and a small footprint, all for improved accuracy, longevity, and flexibility. Vista benchtop spectrophotometer is ready to go out of the box—complete with everything you need to ‘get it right’.
