* Metals with a mirror-finished surface, mirrors, transparent acrylic and films, etc.
** Paper, cloth, plastics, semi-transparent films, etc.

For color measurement, the Color Measurement Software COL-UVPC is required separately.
For film thickness measurement, the Film Thickness Measurement Software FLM-UVPC is required separately.

For Research Use Only. Not for use in diagnostic procedures.
