Abbemat 200 Refractometer

The refractometer Abbemat 200 is the ideal tool for fast and precise measurements of the refractive index for all applications. It provides the highly developed technology of the Abbemat-series for users with a limited budget. The refractometer has all the necessary functions to determine the refractive index or concentrations, is extremely simple to operate and installed in no time at all - ideal even for small laboratories without complex data processing.

The refractometer is suitable for the measurement of liquids, pastes and solids. Both turbid, coloured or non-transparent samples, as well as liquids with air bubbles do not represent a problem. Humidity, ambient temperature or vibrations do not impact the measurement result.
- Simple, user-friendly operation.
  • Membrane keys: resistant to fluids and dirt; easy to operate wearing gloves.
  • Automatic warning, if the sample volume is not sufficient for a reliable measurement.
  • No sample preparation required, measurement results within seconds.
  • Integrated Peltier temperature control (10 to 60 °C).
  • Automatic temperature correction.
  • Large number of scales is deposited, to convert the refractive index to concentration e. g.
  • Compliance with international standards as ASTM, ICUMSA, OIML, AOAC, DIN / ISO, FDA, ISI, JIS and SSDT-methods.
  • Result memory.
  • Data export to MS Excel.
  • Check of trimming and validity for every measurement.
