Key Benefits

3 reasons to invest

Designed for the small 

Theta Pico measures the contact angle even on the smallest surfaces of less than 100 µm. Single fibers, small components and tiny areas can be measured conveniently.  

Focus on the small 

In high magnification, it is particularly difficult to keep the droplet in perfect focus. Automatic focusing ensures that even the tiniest droplets are sharp for reliable results.   

Small droplets require high accuracy 

Automatically enhanced picture with 5 MP resolution is the optimal choice for a demanding application.
