MISCO Digital Handheld Refractometer

Urine Refractometer for Testing Hydration

Urine specific gravity is commonly tested with a urine refractometer as an initial assessment of hydration for athletes involved in various sporting activities. Precise and straightforward, only a couple of drops of urine is necessary to perform a test. The measurement results are displayed nearly instantaneously.
