Color measurement of fruit and vegetables

Fruits and vegetables in their natural and/or dried form, e.g. apples, oranges, peppers, tomatoes and many others, are measured in quality assurance with a spectrophotometer to determine the ripeness or degree of ripeness, as this is closely related to the aroma.

For solid fruit, the preferred measurement technique is to use a 45°/0° directional reflectance instrument. The 45°/0° geometry most closely reproduces the way the human eye ‘sees’ color. A portable spectrophotometer is practical and easy to use for incoming and outgoing goods. A stationary measuring device, such as the Aeros, reliably measures frozen goods such as French fries.

Color measurement of contact lenses

Color measurement of contact lenses

Color measurement is essential in the development of contact lenses in order to optimize both coloration and light transmission. Clear lenses are lightly tinted to facilitate handling without impairing the visual experience. Using specific color measurements, the transmission of light through the lenses can be precisely analyzed and controlled depending on the material. For tinted lenses, the precise measurement makes it possible to change eye colors authentically. HunterLabs Vista spectrophotom...
