Accuracy and efficiency are crucial in the realm of color measurement. With non-contact spectrophotometry, you can optimize instrument performance and precision, leading to accurate results for even the most challenging samples.

What Is Non-Contact Spectrophotometry?

Non-contact spectrophotometry combines spectrophotometry with color imaging procedures to characterize highly complex materials. Like standard spectrophotometry, non-contact spectrophotometry facilitates the quantitative measurement of light absorption over a range of wavelengths to measure the color of a sample. However, this particular technique accomplishes this task without touching the sample surface, facilitating irregular sample measurement with greater accuracy and efficiency.

What Is a Non-Contact Spectrophotometer?

Non-contact spectrophotometers are the instruments used to conduct non-contact spectrophotometry processes. As the name suggests, these devices measure color without making contact with the samples.

What Is the Difference Between a Contact and Non-Contact Spectrophotometer?

While standard spectrophotometers also measure color, they must physically handle specimens to conduct measurements. Non-contact spectrophotometers can measure without physical contact and also comprise advanced features, like automated sample height and depth of field measurement capabilities. These specialized functions enable non-contact solutions to eliminate surface variations and generate more accurate results for irregular and non-uniform samples.


Benefits of Non-Contact Spectrophotometry

Investing in non-contact spectrophotometers means you’ll experience all the perks of traditional spectrophotometry with the added benefits of zero-contact functionality. The many advantages of non-contact spectrophotometry include:

  • Eliminating contact-based issues: The non-contact process eliminates the challenges of contact-based instrumentation, such as the effects of irregular and non-uniform sample measurement.
  • Improving result accuracy: Non-contact spectrophotometry utilizes zero-touch measurement methods to reduce user errors and ultimately produce more accurate results.
  • Preventing contamination: Sample contact comes with the risk of contaminating your samples and skewing your results. Non-contact instruments eliminate this risk because the sensor never touches the sample or sample holder directly.
  • Reducing prep time: Standard spectrophotometers typically require you to alter the sample products using methods like cutting and grinding so that they’ll fit within the sample area. With non-contact spectrophotometry, your samples remain in their natural state, minimizing prep time.
