The PF12plus is easy to use, the glass tubes push straight into the 16mm round cuvette slot.

It gives a direct reading in mg/l for your chosen parameter - choose from a huge range of parameters.

Just order a new test kit from the Nanocolor or Visocolor range to measure a new parameter. Some parameters require additional equipment such as a digestion block in order to complete the analysis.

Each test kit comes with a simple-to-understand pictorial instruction sheet, and usually contains 18-20 tests plus the necessary reagents.

User guidance is available in 12 languages, and there is a clear backlit 64 x 128 pixel display.
