A Refractometer is a precision optical instrument designed to measure the concentration or mixture ratio of water soluble fluids. It measures refractive index, the speed at which light passes through a liquid. The denser the liquid the slower the light will travel through it, and the higher its reading will be on the refractometer. There are four main refractometer types: Traditional Analog Refractometers, Digital Handheld Refractometers, Inline Process Control Refractometers and Refractive Index Sensors, and Desktop, Benchtop or Laboratory Refractometers.
MISCO Refractometer, in business for more than 60 years, is a respected industry leader in the field of refractometry. We maintain this leadership position because refractometers are all we do - just refractometers. Refractometers are not just a catalog item or sideline business for us, they ARE our only business. That's what makes us unique.
Our strategy is simple - we are dedicated to making refractometers useful instruments that are easy for people, not just scientists, to understand and use. We do this by demystifying arcane scientific methods and offering real-world solutions for fluid measurement applications. We pride ourselves on being the information warehouse for the refractometer community.
What are all the different salt scales used for? I need to measure salinity content but don't know what scale I need.
Hello, I am looking for a handheld portable device to measure the % mass ethylene glycol in a glycol / water solution. Thanks.
Why does my Palm Abbe Digital Refractometer read "Close Cover / Press [GO]?"
I have one of your Maple Syrup Palm Abbe refractometers and was wondering if it is possible to add an additional scale for reading invert sugars by percent. And if so how much would it cost for you to add the scale to my device?
