State of the art technology

The advanced technology of the Genius iQ2 spectrophotometer is supremely fast and accurate. Along with Standowin iQ software, it uses over 200,000 constantly updated formulas to give you precise colour matches every time. It even automatically shades the colour and measures finish effect so you get a complete formula in one go.

Innovative design

Much smaller and lighter than previous models, the Genius iQ is easy to use. Bright screens and clear icons make it incredibly intuitive and it takes hardly any training to get up and running. Colour coded LEDs also give instant feedback on the device’s status so you are always in complete control.
