A refractometer is an essential piece of test equipment used to determine the refractive index of gases, liquids, and translucent solids like gemstones. The refractometer works much like a prism, it reacts differently to light (by giving a reading on a scale) depending upon the amount of sugar that is available in the liquid sample held between the daylight plate and the main prism assembly. Liquids are tested for things such as blood proteins, salinity, fluid concentrations, and specific gravity of urine. The use of a hand refractometer facilitates convenient and rapid measurement of concentration in a number of liquid and semi-solid samples. Food applications include the measurement of sugar in grape must and other fresh fruit, processed food, sugar solutions and beverages. Designed to meet the efficiency and accuracy standards, the precision and optical performance of refractometers supplied by National microscope lasts forever.
