Thank you for choosing NECi Superior Enzymes’
Handheld Photometer. The photometer is supplied
charged and ready to pair with any Android device.
Please Note the Following Before Use:
Do not submerge this device. While it is designed for
field use, it is not waterproof.
This device is designed for use with NECi’s enzyme
based test kits for nitrate and phosphate analysis. We
cannot guarantee that it will provide accurate results
with other chemical methods or products.
Prevent dust, dirt, liquid, and other particulates from
entering the cuvette holder and charging ports.
NECi’s handheld photometer is currently optimized for
use with Android devices only. Stay tuned for
expanded device compatibility in the future.
Devices running Android 4.0 or newer are
recommended, although the photometer
should work with any Android device.
It should be noted that some issues may
arise when using Android version 5.0 or
5.01 specifically regarding Bluetooth
connection. To resolve these
issues, simply reset the Bluetooth
connection (Turn off and then

LOADING CUVETTES
When using the phosphate kits, line up
the arrow located on one of the faces
of the cuvette with the light source
indicator on the photometer. Nitrate
kits may be loaded in either direction.
Cuvettes should be handled on the
sides only. Wipe both faces of each
cuvette with a clean lens cloth or facial
tissue prior to reading for best results.
