Choose your own scales!

Although our wide-ranging digital refractometer product catalog has refractometers with many different scale combinations, it is not unusual for users to have very specific needs that can’t be met with our conventional off-the-shelf products.

The Palm Abbe PA203 can be programmed with scales that match your specific fluid measurement needs, to effectively create a custom refractometer. There is a virtually unlimited combination of scales available from our extensive scale library for you to choose from. For help in selecting scales, try our Build-Your-Own Refractometer section, email us, or call customer service toll-free at 866-831-1999 for assistance.

The new Palm Abbe is a fourth-generation digital handheld refractometer that puts laboratory precision in the palm of your hand. Not just laboratory precision, but laboratory precision for the price of a traditional analog refractometer. It is exactly the kind of bold, cutting-edge technology you would expect from MISCO, the company that pioneered the digital handheld refractometer.

The Palm Abbe refractometer is fast, convenient, and easy to use. Simply place a drop or two of fluid in the stainless steel well and press a button. The custom-designed microprocessor delivers a nearly instantaneous readout in degrees Brix. Nonlinear temperature compensation is automatic and insures that fluids are measured accurately.

The large LCD display is easily read, even in dim light, and removes the subjectivity associated with interpreting where a boundary line crosses tiny scale divisions. And, it is so easy to use! The user interface consists of two buttons, one to take readings and the other to step through various menu options.

Calibration is automatic and does not require the use of special calibration solutions, or tools. The Palm Abbe refractometer automatically calibrates itself to water and is ready to use in seconds. No more screws to turn and nothing to adjust.
