Analytic instrument can undertake three measuring tasks with just one device

17 November 2022

The new Easy VIS analytic instrument from Mettler Toledo is able to analyse liquid, translucent samples for optical spectrum, colour and water parameters – or any of the three. This helps speed up the analysis process and improves the quality of the results.

The instrument, which is one of the next-generation EasyPlus UV/VIS spectrophotometers produced by Mettler Toledo, can undertake the measuring tasks of three instruments – a colourimeter, a spectrophotometer, and special measuring methods for water testing, such as titration. The results appear on screen within seconds. 

A typical application for Easy VIS is for quality control of SME manufacturers in the food and beverage industry, environmental testing labs, or any industry needing quality control and supervising their process, or wastewater. 

The Easy VIS can be used for inspection of raw materials, quality control of semi-finished and finished products, or testing the water quality of wastewater. This helps streamline production processes as there is no need to send samples to an external laboratory for analysis.

The visual user interface with workflow guidance allows users to simply scan and measure so even untrained staff can operate Easy VIS. 

Easy VIS operates within a wavelength range of 330 to 1,000nm. The light source is a replaceable tungsten lamp.

The partner device, Easy UV, covers the full UV/Vis spectrum with a wavelength range from 190 to 1,000nm to cover additional applications in the UV range. The Easy UV runs with a power-saving and maintenance-free xenon-flash lamp.

Water analysis can show, for example, the concentration of aluminium, ozone, chlorine, or polyphenol which can point to whether the water is fit for human consumption or can be used in further production or whether wastewater safe to release. 

For spectrophotometry, the sample is analysed at the wavelengths where the sample has its characteristic absorption of light. The Easy VIS measures the transmitted or absorbed light and the reading reveals the sample’s concentration or purity.
