Handheld Brix Refractometers

Our Handheld Brix Refractometers are exceptionally simple to operate and provide quick, accurate measurements for the concentration of nearly any aqueous solution.

Operation consists of placing 1 or 2 drops of sample on the prism, closing the daylight plate over the sample, then looking through the focusable, cushioned-rubber eyepiece for the readings. 

Easy to calibrate, simply place a few drops of distilled water or liquid standard (R.I. oil or prepared sucrose solution) on the prism, turn the built-in “Zero-Ring” until the shadowline is at the correct value of the liquid, and secure the ring. Models with ATC need to be calibrated in a controlled environment due to the built-in temperature element.

All models come with a carrying case, plastic transfer pipette and instruction manual.
