LabScan XE Spectrophotometer

The LabScan XE spectrophotometer has 0°/45° optical geometry that measures color the way that you see color, ignoring the glare, and including the effect of gloss or texture. Its large measurement port of 50 mm reduces the need to average and the variable illumination option has an automated zoom lens to measure samples as small as 5 mm.

To maintain maximum measurement stability, LabScan XE automatically checks and adjusts to an internal reference standard. To accurately measure optically brightened materials, ultraviolet calibration and control of the illumination source is available. Use LabScan XE to measure samples in virtually any form including solids, powders and liquids. The system can be used in sample port-up, port-forward, and, with the optional sample stand, port-down orientation.

The LabScan XE system includes EasyMatch QC software and an electronic recordkeeping version that is 21 CFR 11 compliant is available. EasyMatch Coatings color formulation software for paint is also available.

MEASURE Like the eye “sees” color

0°/45° optical geometry for a better perspective on “seeing” color.

The same color, when seen on surfaces that differ by gloss or texture, ends up “looking” like a different color to the human eye. LabScan® XE measures and “sees” that difference in appearance the same way the human eye does. Its 0°/45° circumferential geometry incorporates a 15-station, fiber-optic ring that collects and averages reflected light from all stations. The result is a fast, simplified measurement that automatically accounts for the effects of variations in textures, finishes or granulations.


Versatility in measuring-from incoming raw materials to finished goods.

Samples come in all sizes, shapes and forms, and LabScan® XE gives you the capability to measure their color with unparalleled versatility, simplicity and accuracy. It features one of the largest illuminated sample areas available-44 mm-which gives you superior precision when scanning textured, non-uniform samples. An optional automated Variable Sample Illumination (VSI) feature allows you to measure from 44mm to 3mm, for maximum flexibility in the sizes and kinds of samples you can measure. The VSI feature also gives you far more accuracy in measuring translucent solids or liquids. What’s more, you can measure with the sample port facing up, forward (sideways), or, with an optional stand, straight down. It also delivers superior inter-instrument agreement at multiple sites.
