Compact Photometer

PF-3 Fish

The PF-3 fish photometer is part of the smallest member of the MACHEREY-NAGEL photometer family, providing a really handy way of carrying out site measurements.

It is simple and intuitive to use with just four buttons. Strong enough to resist the rigours of site work with shock resistant optics, reinforced housing and IP 68 rating.

To constantly provide a safe habitat for fish, the water quality has to be closely monitored. For reliable and convenient analysis of all important fishing water parameters the PF-3 Fish with VISOCOLOR® ECO and NANOCOLOR® test kits is the perfect combination.

The PF-3 is ideally suited for mobile water analysis right at the point of interest. Due to the intuitive 4-button-menu guidance, using the PF-3 photometer is straightforward straight out of the box. Shock-resistant optics and a waterproof rating of IP 68 guarantee safe, reliable and accurate results even under difficult site conditions.
