Sample Preparation and Presentation Best Practices for Accurate Color Measurement

To accurately measure the color of your samples, standardized procedures are required. This includes preparing and presenting the samples the same for each instrumental measurement reading. If standardized methods are not followed, errors and inconsistencies between a sample and standard are likely to occur. Listed below are preparation and presentation best practices to achieve more accurate and consistent results when measuring the color of your samples. Learn more >

Understanding the CIE L*C*h Color Space

Similar to CIE L*a*b*, the CIE L*C*h color space enables users to evaluate the color attributes of samples, identify inconsistencies, and accurately express their findings to others in numerical terms. This color space is preferred by some industry professionals because its system correlates well with how the human eye perceives color. In this article, we provide an overview of how the CIE L*C*h color space is used to evaluate and control the color of samples. View now >


How Human Skin Color Evolved Across Different Regions

Skin is the human body's largest organ, serving as our protector from harsh environmental elements. While this protection is a staple in every modern person's biological makeup, the color of skin is unique to each individual. Until recently, this color difference ranging from very light to very dark skin has been misunderstood. Recent research sheds new light on the driving forces behind the evolution of skin color across different regions - a survival tactic dating back to our early ancestors. Read more >
