MA873 Digital Refractometer for Glucose Measurements
The MA873 is an optical instrument that employs the measurement of refractive index to determine the % Glucose in aqueous solutions. The method is both simple and quick.
Samples are measured after a simple user calibration with deionized or distilled water.
Within seconds the instrument measures the refractive index of the sample and converts it to % by weight concentration units.
The MA873 digital refractometer eliminates the uncertainity associated with mechanical refractometers and is easily portable for measurements on the go.
The measurement technique and temperature compensation employ methodology recommended in the ICUMSA Methods Book (Internationally recognized body for Sugar Analysis).
Temperature (in °C or °F) is displayed simultaneously with the measurement on the large dual level display along with icons for Low Power and other helpful message codes.
Key features include:
Stainless Steel Sample Well and Prism
Conductivity readings are performed by applying an alternate current to the 4-ring probe which creates a variable voltage depending on the conductivity
Liquid Cristal Display (LCD)
Dual Level LCD with Primary and Secondary Display
