How good are your team at perceiving colours and the variations between them? Find out their colour acuity (also known as colour discrimination) and diagnose any colour deficiencies (colour blindness) with this easy-to-use test kit.

The Farnsworth Munsell 100 Hue Test enables evaluation of how you and your employees discern important colour differences – and where you may have deficiencies or colour blindness. Use the series of 85 colour reference caps in controlled daylight conditions, along with the scoring software, to assess a person’s visual acuity for effective colour evaluation and communication. Fully analyse colour vision for all your in-house and field staff involved with colour-critical operations. Administer under controlled D65 daylight conditions such as provided by VeriVide Light Booths.

It is essential to know that everyone working in a colour assessment or product quality control role has excellent colour vision and acuity. This ability is also extremely useful for anyone involved in colour from design through manufacture and in any industry.

Perfect colour vision is also a requirement for many jobs including airline pilots, train drivers and fire fighters.  Having the right people in the right jobs is essential to any business and this simple test helps you ensure your best people are where they need to be when it comes to evaluating colour.

Product is certified for two years after opening after which replacement caps or a new kit are required.

Global Standard

The Farnsworth-Munsell 100 Hue Test M80000/ CEP001 is a highly effective and easy to use test to assess an individual’s colour vision. A global standard, it has been used by governments and industry for more than 60 years.

The Farnsworth-Munsell 100 Hue Test is specified by the ASTM E 1499 Standard Guide for Selection, Evaluation and Training of Observers, the AATCC Evaluation Procedure 9 and numerous leading companies in a variety of industries. Each kit is certified and traceable to NIST – the National Institute of Standards and Technology.

Any colour vision abnormalities and the colour acuity of each subject are detected by their ability to place the coloured reference caps in order of their hue within each tray of the colour hue test.

The Munsell test includes user-friendly scoring software on a CD available in multiple languages. The scoring software gives a graphic display of colour vision capability as well as a Total Error Score and explains the error score grading. Subjects are scored to have Superior, Average or Low colour vision.
