Lovibond® Color Measurement

Lovibond® SV 100 Integrated Kit SV 100
The Lovibond® SV 100 integrated kit (which includes the Lovibond® LC 100) provides a unique solution to users looking to measure food, powders, cosmetics and pastes. The SV 100 holder supports the LC 100 at an ergonomic viewing angle to enable the measurements in Lovibond® optical cells. A secure cap is provided to cover the sample, protecting it from any excessive ambient light, enabling quick yet accurate readings.

The units are provided in a purpose-designed case containing all the accessories required for accurate color measurement expected of the Lovibond® brand.

Lovibond® LC 100 (included in Kit)

The Lovibond® LC 100 enables setting and maintaining color standards throughout the manufacturing process. It is a lightweight tool that is easy to handle and ready to use. In just over a second, it not only provides a reading of the sample but also a report telling how close the color is to a measured standard. Together with the Lovibond® SV 100, it is the ideal solution for the color measurement of food, powder, cosmetics pastes and pharmaceuticals.

The LC 100 automatically creates conformance reports in either PDF or Excel formats for each stored sample against each standard. These can easily be shared with a PC or directly to a compatible printer (via mass storage mode).




  • Enhanced Working Agreement: Takes images of sample using 8 different visible illuminations and UV LED (9 bands) for more accurate color measurement.
  • Unique Imaging Technology 45/0 optical geometry and image capture technology: better agreement to visual observations
  • Information on Color and Surface Texture Effects: Each measurement is a combination of 27 images illuminated with different colors and from different directions
  • Quick, Accurate Reading: Measurement time of just over a second
  • Precise Positioning on sample: Enables preview of measurement area and storage and recall of image after measurement
  • Increased Quality Control: Up to 20 reference standards can be measured and stored - each date and time stamped with option to name
  • Single Unit for Multiple Tests: Up to 350 sample measurements can be stored on the device and compared to the reference standards
  • Easily Identify Measurements: Samples can be tagged via the on-screen keyboard for text or via the built in voice recorder
  • Save and Print Results: For a more in-depth report, the LC 100 creates PDF and CSV files which can be accessed via a PC with the USB mass storage mode
  • Hand-Held Imaging Spectrocolorimeter

  • Unique housing stand to protect sample from ambient light

  • Enables measurement of food, powders, cosmetics and pastes
