UltraScan PRO Spectrophotometer

The UltraScan® PRO is the benchmark reference color measurement spectrophotometer against which all others are compared. It is ideal for demanding research and quality control applications. The UltraScan® PRO measures reflected and transmitted color, as well as spectral reflectance, spectral transmittance and transmission haze. It meets all CIE, ASTM and USP color measurement guidelines.

With exceptional inter-instrument agreement, precise spectral measurement and unsurpassed long term stability, UltraScan® PRO offers precise and reliable color measurement from opaque solids to clear liquids to transparent films.


UltraScan PRO Spectrophotometer



The D65 illumination source is calibrated in the ultraviolet region for the accurate measurement of whitening agents. UltraScan PRO has an extended wavelength range into the near infrared and near ultraviolet that permits the measurement of camouflage materials and UV blockers. The system uses diffuse/8° geometry with automated specular component inclusion/exclusion. It also features three sizes of sample measurement areas with automated lens change. The UltraScan PRO includes EasyMatch QC software and an electronic record keeping version that is 21 CFR 11 compliant is available.

Use UltraScan PRO for both research and quality control. From opaque solids to clear liquids to transparent films, UltraScan PRO precisely measures both reflected and transmitted color, spectral reflectance, spectral transmittance and transmission haze. A host of measurement features and specialized sample-handling devices make UltraScan PRO the most versatile high-performance color measurement spectrophotometer available.

Exceptional Performance Built to Last

Underneath its sleek exterior lives an electronic assembly, ruggedly built in excess of specification on a rigid optical platform, ensuring years of reliable, accurate service. The flash Xenon light source generates virtually no heat, eliminates the effect of ambient light, and requires no warm-up. Measurements over the entire spectral range are made in a matter of seconds. Spectral data is collected every 2 nm and reported for every 5 nm.


In addition to measurement versatility, the UltraScan® PRO has available sample measurement accessories designed to hold virtually any type of solid or liquid sample for accurate and repeatable measurements. Use UltraScan® PRO for both research and quality control. The transmission compartment of UltraScan® PRO makes the measurement of over-sized samples easy and accommodates various sample handling devices. It is capable of measuring liquid volumes as small as 0.4 ml. The UltraScan® PRO has the ability to measure sample reflectance and transmittance as low as 350 nm, enabling the measurement of UV blocking characteristics of coated glass, sunglasses and other UV absorbers.


The dual beam optical system has two state-of-the-art holographic grating polychromators with an effective bandwidth of 5 nm. The diffracted light is detected by a High IR sensitivity, 512 element linear
array. Three long-life Xenon flash lamps mounted in a reflective lamp housing are used for illumination.
