Place a drop or two of a sample on the prisim and read the results
Sper Scientific portable refractometers work in ambient light with no battery or other power source necessary. A refractometer measures the extent to which light is bent (refracted) through a liquid sample. They are commonly used to help identify or confirm the identity of a sample, assess the purity of a sample, or determine the concentration of a solute in a solution. They can be used in labs, on production lines, in the field or anywhere. Simply place a drop or two of a sample on the prism and read the results immediately. With reasonable care, their reliability, precision, and optical performance will last forever.
Brix refractometers, also called sugar refractometers, are commonly used in the food and beverage, agriculture and wine industries. Fruit farmers will use a refractometer to check the sugar content of fruit on the vine to determine the best time for harvesting. Similarly, grocers and other fruit purchasers will use brix values to determine how much they are willing to spend. It is the latter application for which this Sper Scientific handheld sugar – brix refractometer is an ideal measurement instrument for the food and beverage industry. Features & Benefits:
