We’ve thought outside the box.
Now you can too.

No longer does the spectrophotometer have to stay crisp, clean, and stationary. The Nix Spectro 2 includes an automotive grade black powder coating and no moving parts. Meaning it’s dust, water, and scratch resistant exterior allows you to move out of the lab and into real life.

Re-imagining spectrophotometers.
