Hitch standardization can be used to make your instrument read samples of a particular color the same way as another instrument, improving agreement. If a product standard has been measured on another instrument (primary readings) and color or spectral values have been assigned to it, then your instrument can be adjusted to those values (secondary readings) so that samples you read are corrected for any differences between the two instruments.
To perform a hitch standardization, you need a standard with either color values or spectral values assigned to it. Your instrument should already be attached to the computer and installed in EasyMatch QC before performing this lesson.
