Gardner, Iodine Color Number, Hazen/ APHA, European Pharmacopoeia, US Pharmacopeia
*With some instrument types, the illuminating/light-receiving optical system may not satisfy the definition of “Haze” ASTM D1003-97 procedure B. However, this presents no problem as long as the value is used as a relative value.
