The Wireless Colourimeter simultaneously measures the absorbance and transmittance of six different wavelengths. The sensor can be used to study Beer’s Law (absorbance vs. concentration), enzyme activity, photosynthesis, and the rates of chemical reactions (absorbance vs. time). After a simple calibration, students can quickly begin viewing live measurements as they materialize across the visible spectrum at 650 nm (red), 600 nm (orange), 570 nm (yellow), 550 nm (green), 500 nm (blue), and 450 nm (violet).

This sensor also functions as a high-quality turbidity meter for water quality analysis. Rather than simply measuring transmitted light, the Wireless Colourimeter and Turbidity Sensor measures light scattered at a 90 degree angle from the sample, resulting in accurate and repeatable measurements. Additionally, the internal housing for the cuvette is opaque, which limits ambient light interference to preserve accuracy.
