Unmatched measurement principle 
Visual camera observation and digital image analysis guarantee that the determinations are reliable.The high resolution color videos recorded during the measurement can be repeatedly played back on the instrument. This allows you to check unexpected results by visually reviewing measurements.

Reliable results 
Simultaneous analysis of two samples delivers the mean value and the difference of the single results.
Measurements can include conformity checks and automatic printout of results in one simple step, which prevents transcription errors and operator bias that occur with manual methods.

Conformity with current standards 
Operation according to standards of the American Society for Testing and Materials (ASTM International), European Pharmacopeia and further standards makes it easier to compare measurement results. You can use all the cups specified in these standards with the innovative sample carrier.

Complete result documentation 
All results are securely archived and can be tracked at any time. Whether you print out results on a strip or network printer, save reports as PDF, or directly transfer all result files including video to a PC, you always get the maximum information possible from your measurements. In addition the result file in CSV format (comma separated values) enables the read-out of selected data by LIMS-software.
