Uncover the Accurate World of Refractometers

In the world of clinical diagnostics, research, and quality control, obtaining accurate and reliable measurements is of the utmost importance. LW Scientific offers a range of refractometers designed to provide precise quantitative data for a variety of applications.

Protein / Specific Gravity Refractometer

The Protein / Specific Gravity Model from LW Scientific allows you to achieve accurate, quantitative measurements of specific gravity and protein determinations in biological fluids. With its rubber grip and optical focus system, this hand-held refractometer provides easy viewing in any environment, while the automatic temperature compensation ensures immediate results, even when sample temperatures vary.

BRIX Refractometer

The optical BRIX Refractometer from LW Scientific is designed to measure the sugar content in a wide range of liquids, including wine, beer, fruit juices, soft drinks, milk, colostrum, and yeast cultures. This versatile instrument can be used in the lab or in the field, with a 0-32% scale, focusing eyepiece, and automatic temperature compensation. The BRIX Refractometer comes in a hard carry case, making it a convenient tool for on-site measurements.

Colostrum Quality Measurement

The BRIX Refractometer is particularly useful for measuring the quality of equine and bovine colostrum. BRIX scores of 22% or higher represent good quality colostrum, while 18-21% readings indicate colostrum that can be used for second feedings. Scores below 17% will need to be supplemented.

Versatile Applications

LW Scientific's refractometers are designed for use in a variety of settings, including:

  • Veterinary medicine
  • Educational institutions

Refractometers, the indispensable instruments for measuring the refractive index, have significantly revolutionized the scientific and industrial world.
