Key features

Precise concentration measurement for quality control

Precise concentration measurement for quality control

The Abbemat 3X00 series measures the concentration of binary solutions. With over 200 available methods – from acetic acid to Zeiss – Abbemat refractometers provide the quality control that you require.

  • Refractive index
  • Pharmaceuticals (methods acc. to Ph. EU / US / JP)
  • Food (e.g. Brix, sucrose, glucose, iodine value)
  • Beverages (e.g. Brix, invert sugar, sucrose, Zeiss)
  • Chemicals (e.g. sodium hydroxide, sulfuric acid)
For all types of samples

For all types of samples

Measure all consistencies within seconds – from liquids to pastes.

  • Measures even turbid, colored, or opaque samples
  • Unaffected by environmental humidity, temperature, or vibrations
  • Minimal cleaning required – just wipe down the measuring prism after each measurement
Easy to use right out of the box

Easy to use right out of the box

The Abbemat 3X00 refractometers come ready to measure immediately after unpacking.

  • Ready to measure immediately after unpacking
  • Intuitive user interface allows access to all measurement-relevant features on a 5.8” color touchscreen
  • Can be operated even while wearing gloves
  • Automatic warnings if the measurement prism is not clean or the sample volume is too low
Space-saving, maintenance-free instrument

Space-saving, maintenance-free instrument

Abbemat refractometers have no moving parts and are maintenance-free, so operators can spend time measuring instead of worrying about downtimes.

Abbemat refractometers also fit nicely into any workspace – each model of the Abbemat 3X00 series takes up about the same space as a sheet of paper.
