New from LaMotte

LaMotte Company is pleased to introduce a new line of visual comparators and test kit packaging: Water Pollution Kit Series

  • The new Octa-Slide 2 Comparator allows color matching in an instant, without manipulating tubes.
  • The new LRC Low Range Comparator requires only two tubes, and a slide of precise color-filled glass ampoules makes matching even light color variations far simpler.
  • The new kit boxes lay flat when open, creating a stable workplace and storage area, and the hinged lid eliminates mixing of lids and bottoms.
  • The new Field Tote will provide years of rugged field service with room to carry the extras often left behind.
