There are several companies that market general purpose "field" spectrophotometers and colorimeters.
LaMotte has a "SMART Spectro" for around $1,600 plus another $350 for essential extras and a "SMART Colorimeter" for $900 plus another $285 for the extras. Both use LaMotte reagent kits that cost from $13.50 (high range Phosphate) to $146 (Ozone) with around $30 for the mean.
Both sets, of course, have far greater precision and accuracy that even the most fanatical of us could possibly need. However, If I won the lottery......
I wonder if there would be a market for a much cheaper colorimeter if the trade offs in precision, accuracy, etc were acceptable?
