Accurate water testing with light-sensing technology

The Coloryzer helps you accurately test water conditions, covering a wide range of users from the hobbyist, such as aquarium and swimming pool owners, to the professional, such as coral growers, breeders, and laboratory institutes. The device uses light-sensing technology to analyse the quality of water.


Creating absolute darkness for accurate results

We deeply considered the Coloryzer’s need for absolute darkness inside for the light-sensing technology to work. In our POC phase, we tested the effect of surrounding light on the sensitivity of the sensor and found a simple solution – an internal tube that covers the sensor area.

The Outcome

Simplifying design to optimise function.

Due to the darkness requirements of the sensor, the cuvette needs to be fully covered during the measurement. This opened up the opportunity for a unique opening and closing mechanism for the device.

Taking advantage of the use of magnets, we designed a magnetic sliding door that held securely in place in either an open or closed state, allowing for a simple, yet satisfying one-handed interaction. The magnetic attachment also allowed for easy removal and cleaning, which was an important factor for the device.
