The MicrOptix i-LAB 400 VSR 400 handheld visible analyzing spectrophotometer provides real-time, 400 to 700 nanometer (nm) visible spectral measurement of solids in a backlit LCD display, has an integrated surface reader, calibrator, and Microspectral Analysis sensing system, and comes with datalogger software. A spectrophotometer is a device used to conduct color wavelength measurements of liquids and solids in industrial, commercial, homeland security, and household applications.
This i-LAB 400 spectrophotometer has an integrated i-LAB Microspectral Analysis sensing system for field measurements. The meter combines flexible custom measurements with a surface reader, for measuring solids and displaying reflectance color measurements. The meter can conduct transmission method measurements with its sample adapter. The backlighting feature can be set on a timer. The meter stores the visible spectrum of samples for data transfer. Included i-LAB Spectrum software allows users to create and transfer customized measurement options to the spectrophotometer. An included standard 10” mini-USB port and cable are used to download spectral measurements. The i-LAB 400 spectrophotometer comes with a protective cap. It weighs 7.4 ounces, for portability in a variety of field and process plant color analysis applications. The MicrOptix i-LAB meets American Society for Testing Materials (ASTM) E308 and E313 standards.

A spectrophotometer is a device used to measure and analyze aspects of light absorption in liquids and solids. Readings are displayed in digital or analog format. A spectrophotometer can have a handheld body for field use, or a bench-top body for laboratory applications. It may have one or more adapters to enable it to measure surfaces or liquids. A spectrophotometer is used for testing and measuring in anatomy, chemistry, agriculture, process plant, food and beverage making, homeland security, and educational applications.
MicrOptix manufactures microspectral analysis products such as spectrophotometers, adapters, and accessories used in the scientific, industrial, and food processing industries. The company, founded in 2008, is headquartered in Wilton, ME.
