HunterLab-colorimeter-rental-rentalThe task

The consistency of butter does not allow it to be simply placed on an aperture for color measurement, as this would contaminate the sensitive measuring device. For this reason, it is often laboriously coated in measuring cuvettes for color measurement, which have to be laboriously cleaned again after the measurement.

The solution

For color measurement, HunterLab recommends simply placing a block of butter with a pre-cut transparent carrier film on the aperture of the ColorFlex EZ spectrophotometer.
