Scientific Solutions has reached an exclusive distribution agreement with Misco Refractometers, Instruments from Cleveland, Ohio, USA. Refractometers, Instruments is one of the industry leaders in the field of refractometry.
Entry level Abbe refractometer is mainstay of industrial and academic laboratories for over two decades is now available directly in Australia and New Zealand.
The time-proven consistency and dependability of the Abbe Mark II Plus refractometer with a range of 1.3000 to 1.7000 makes it one of the widely accepted laboratory refractometers for demanding industries including pharmaceutical, food and beverage, petrochemical and manufacturing.
The Abbe Mark II Plus bench-top refractometer is a transmitted light refractometer that has been a mainstay of laboratories and universities for more than two decades. Abbe Mark II Plus bench-top refractometer differs from other bench-top refractometers based on the method of reading.
A transmitted light refractometer measures the light that passes through the sample as opposed to the light reflected off a surface of a fluid. A transmitted light refractometer, like the Abbe Mark II Plus, will allow the user to view the actual shadow line and manually adjust for colour dispersion.
Transmitted light refractometers are preferable for some applications involving transparent, translucent, and semi-translucent liquids and solids that are difficult to measure on other types of refractometers.
The Abbe Mark II Plus features three direct read digital scales namely refractive index, brix (% solids), temperature compensated brix (% solids), as well as an electronic prism temperature readout. The temperature probe of the Abbe Mark II Plus is mounted in the prism and is accurate to +/- 0.1° C.
The built-in illumination system on the Abbe Mark II Plus refractometer is easy to adjust for obtaining good shadow line and dispersion adjustment. A focusing eyepiece makes the reticle easy to read. The Abbe Mark II Plus also has a RS-232-C data port for data transfer to a personal computer.
