Some reference prints (FOGRA51) may exceed the acceptance threshold of DeltaE = 5 in magenta solid colour due to an unexpected "dark reaction" that occurred months after production. Please do not use such copies for visual and measurement comparisons with self-produced prints. Reference prints are generally not certified colour samples, especially if they have been stored for a long period of time, even in light- and dust-safe envelopes.

The update is only available to customers who already own the Altona Test Suite 2.0 application kit (2013). Once an order has been placed, we will therefore request the package number of the application kit via e-mail.
