    :hello: im really not sure if this will be helpful but here are some sites i used whan i was doing some work with a colorimeter - i cant help exactly with your question cus im to dumb and havent sdone the experiment and i dont no what type of colorimeter your using but here you go

    http://humboldt.edu/~scimus/Instrume...ers/Color.html
    http://www.lamotte.com/pages/common/...uals/Stc-1.pdf

    also i just saw this bit on this page
    The filters are used to isolate a part of the visible light spectrum that is absorbed maximally by the sample. Different colourimeters use different sets of filters but typical wavelengths passed are red filter: 630-750nm, green filter: 510-570nm and blue filter: 360-480nm. Although you will normally be told which filter to use you should consider and understand the reason for this choice.

    this is the page it came from

    ok well hope it all goes fab - tell me if it does help then ill tell the world

    You want to use a filter which lets light through that is absorbed by the sample. For example, if the compound you are measuring is red, then it absorbs blue light so you should use a blue filter.

    In other words use the complementary colour to the compound you are measuring.

    If you are told the wavelength it absorbs at, then use a filter that lets that wavelength of light through.
