Ahead of the curve

The new colorimeter from Cerium offers a digital solution for practitioners

Cerium Curve

Cerium Visual Technologies will launch a new digital instrument, the Mk4 Intuitive Colorimeter ‘Curve,’ at 100% Optical (27–29 January, ExCeL, London)

The ‘Curve’ has been developed through a Knowledge Transfer Partnership with the University of Essex under the Government programme, Innovate UK.

Managing director at Cerium, Kimberley Harrison, said that the new system offers “cutting edge technology, sleek styling and an innovative digital solution for colorimetry assessment in the modern practice.”

The ‘Curve’ follows three generations of Cerium colorimeters and offers a systematic assessment of the parameters of hue, saturation and brightness that will be familiar to practitioners, the company said.

It will guide practitioners through the assessment on the LED lighting unit via a tablet, which connects using Bluetooth, and collate the information in an easy to read summary.

The new instrument is smaller, has a curved aperture to shield from light, and also features automated ordering for a more streamlined experience for the patient and practitioner.
