Don't think so. The C50 is reccommendef for applications where
color accuracy is important - graphics and photographic work,
or for treating seasonal depression.

SPX35 is the meat counter tube. It has lots of red. The C50 is
more of a "cool" or "blue" bulb which would make meat look natural,
not good and red and would probably kill meat sales :-)

I've only seen the Philips tri-something reccommned for clothes
