  • All You Need to be Compliant to the EP Scale
    The AF 332 is a self-contained kit providing everything you need to match pharmaceutical samples to the European Pharmacopoeia (PH Eur MMethod 2.2.2) Scale including the visual Lovibond® Comparator System 2000, five colour-grading discs and two 40 mm cells.
  • Fast, Economical & Portable Visual Matching
    The Comparator 2000+ is a flexible, modular system for Visual Colour Grading. Using a suitable comparator instrument and glass disc, you can quickly visually match the sample directly against the calibrated, colour stable glass standards.
  • Two-Field Vision for Accurate Results
    Lovibond® comparator instruments include an integrated prism which causes the sample and comparison fields to overlap, allowing enhanced colour discrimination and matching. The prism is ultrasonically sealed to prevent contamination of the optics. Each individually graded glass standard represents a discrete step on the measurement range (as opposed to a continuous graduation), aiding colour discrimination and allowing great accuracy of results.
  • Ability to Guarantee Constant Lighting Conditions
    An optional item for the Comparator 2000+ is the Daylight 2000 Lighting Unit. This is a standardised light source which guarantees you a constant lighting condition for accurate colour grading. This is particularly useful when the sample is very pale in colour. By using a Lovibond® lighting unit, you can confident of uniform lighting conditions for colour matching, 24 hours a day and irrespective of ambient lighting.
  • Extended Shelf Life
    The unique feature of Lovibond® test discs is that they incorporate coloured glass standards that are colour stable and not affected by UV light or extreme environmental conditions.
    Please note, we cannot guarantee compatability of discontinued Lovibond® Comparator 1000 disks with the Lovibond® 2000+ Comparator.
