Photometer updateImportant firmware update for spectrophotometer NANOCOLOR® UV/VIS! As of now a new firmware update (version 8.0.3) is available. Please update your NANOCOLOR® spectrophotometer, so your device is up to date and our latest firmware optimizations are available on your NANOCOLOR® UV/VIS.
Important note UV/VIS and VIS update 1:
After the successful update of the photometer a zero calibration is required. Please use the calibration cuvette delivered with the photometer and follow the display instructions for zero calibration.
Important note UV/VIS and VIS update 2:
The current update performs an automatical system reset on your photometer! Be sure to save your data and user-defined methods on your PC before updating the device! Important note UV/VIS and VIS update 3: If you use the MACHEREY-NAGEL PC-Software for spectrophotometers together with your photometer, an instrument update requires also an update of the PC-Software (V 7.0.0). The instrument's new data set can only be exported into and read by the new PC-Software version.

NANOCOLOR® Reagent Tube Tests
Compact Multiparameter Photometer PF-12 Plus
For easy and fast measurements
Using NANOCOLOR® bar coded test tubes, the measurement is automatically performed after inserting the cuvette into the cuvette slot. The contact with any dangerous chemicals is avoided because the measurement is performed directly in the test tube. This guarantees maximum safety for the user.
Reliable and comparable results
The reaction basis of NANOCOLOR® tests is based on international approved standard methods like DIN-, EN-, ISO-, EPA- and APHA.
Easy handling and highest accuracy
All NANOCOLOR® tests contain accurate predosed reagents, that are directly ready to use and calibrated accessories.
The perfect test for every request
For all important parameters in water and wastewater analysis, a large number of tests with different ranges is available.
No mix up of tests Every
NANOCOLOR® test box is equipped with a colour coded label and can be identified clearly by its colour.
A full overview of all reagents and equipment can be found in the NANOCOLOR Analysis System Brochure.
NANOCOLOR Potassium 50 (REF 985045) has been improved. The change is introduced from LOT 45004, which is available from stock as of 20th July 2020.
The test is now produced with an integrated ammonium compensation. The modified recipe allows a simple determination of potassium in the presence of an ammonium interference up to a concentration of 200 mg/L NH4-N, which is unique in the market.
The use of the additional ammonium compensation reagent (REF 918045) is therefore no longer necessary. Additional information on this topic will be part of our upcoming water news mailing.
Please note, that the test procedure has changed.
An update of the photometers is not required.
Please find the new product information within the following link.
Note: Please save your special methods and measurement data prior to the update. More information can be found in the customer information
For old photometers (PF-11 etc.) asking for blank guidance is available here.
