Why you might need an adapter

Surfaces that aren’t flat or solid can be difficult to measure accurately. Light from the device can reflect at different points and angles, making received values inaccurate. To avoid poor scanning conditions, pair your device with one of our carefully crafted adapters.

Flat adapter

For the Nix Spectro 2 (5 mm) and Nix Spectro L

25 Pack: $53 CAD

50 Pack: $80 CAD

To avoid poor scanning conditions on surfaces that are uneven, textured, plush, or soft, the flat adapter can be attached to the bottom of the Nix Spectro 2 (5 mm) or Nix Spectro L. This creates a uniformed surface scan with consistent and accurate results.

Perfect for:

  • Fabrics
  • Carpeting
  • Skin
  • Food products
  • Agricultural products
  • Fur / feathers

Please note: With the flat adapter attached, you may see L-values that are lower than those seen without the flat adapter due to light geometry. If you are using a flat adapter to measure your products, it is important to remember to set the master color while using a flat adapter as well. This way, you are comparing apples to apples.

The flat adapter is not compatible with the Nix Spectro 2 (2 mm).

Liquids and powders are typically challenging to measure accurately without a specialized container. Our liquid and powder adapter systems allow for easy measurement of all liquids and powders, using standardized slides or cuvettes. These adapters ensure a flat, uniform measurement interface, meaning you can be certain all measurements are highly precise and repeatable.

Includes:

  • Lab-grade glass cuvette (5mm path length)
    • Fully washable and reusable
  • Plastic chamber to block out all ambient light

Perfect for:

  • All liquids

Low volume liquid/powder adapter

For the Nix Spectro 2 (5 mm), Nix Spectro 2 (2 mm), Nix Spectro L, Nix QC, and Nix Pro 2

$187 CAD

Semi-solids, liquids and powders are typically challenging to measure accurately without a specialized container. Our liquid and powder adapter systems allow for easy measurement of all liquids and powders, using standardized slides or cuvettes. These adapters ensure a flat, uniform measurement interface, meaning you can be certain all measurements are highly precise and repeatable.

Includes:

  • 20 x plastic slides with removeable lids
    • Can be re-used or thrown away after use
  • Plastic chamber to block out all ambient light

Recommended for:

  • Semi-solids
  • Liquids
  • Powders
