Laxco™ Handheld LED Analog Brix/Sucrose Refractometer

Not yet rated


Refractometers have been used for measuring the concentration of solutions for more than a century. Their primary purpose is to measure the degree at which light bends as it passes through a medium and is used in a wide range of applications and industries as a quality control and diagnostic tool.

Laxco Analog Lighted Refractometers are designed by US engineers and include many features packed into a handheld device.

Each unit is inspected in the United States by a factory qualified technician under a ridged quality control process to ensure accuracy and performance.

Key Features:

Sealed calibration screw is locked on the bottom of the unit to prevent water from entering into the system

Quickly calibrate the instrument with a turn of a screw, and distilled water

Comfortable rubber eyecup blocks out ambient light, and allows for crystal clear viewing of readings

Automatic temperature compensation prevents the need for constant re-calibration of the instrument. As the ambient temperature changes, the scale will automatically compensate for the difference in the degree of refraction. This ensures an accurate reading every time

All metal construction and water-resistant seal between prism and main body protects and prevents damage to internal objective lens

Flat bottom allows the instrument to be set on a flat surface without the worry of it rolling

Rubber hand grip is comfortable, easy to grasp. Its non-slip pattern grip reduces that chance of accidentally dropping the instrument

One-piece U-shaped metal hinged daylight plate provides durability of frequent opening and closing. Two screws allow the daylight plate to be easily replacement in case of accidental damage

Machined hole for hanging the refractometer in a convenient location

Ball bearing hinged daylight secures the daylight plate in the up and down position

Magnified scale and all glass optics create the sharpest readings on the market

Push bottom monetary switch allows for easy operation of the LED illumination

Focusable eyepiece allows for crisp focus of reading line

Carrying lanyard

Two sample applicators are mounted to the bottom side of the refractometer, for convenience

LED illuminates the scale without the need for ambient light

Operates both with ambient light and LED

Portable, easy to use design

Clinical Models:

Quickly and accurately get an indication of basic health parameters such as dehydration and blood plasma protein levels. Laxco Lighted Analog Clinical Refractometers uses three-scales to measure Total Serum Protein, Urine Specific Gravity, and Refractive Index, and ideal for use in quality control, research, and clinical laboratories.

Urine Specific Gravity: 1.000ppt to 1.050ppt with granularity to measure down to 0.2ppt at a 0.2ppt degree of accuracy

Serum Protein: 0g to 12g/100mL with granularity to measure down to 0.2g/100mL at a 0.2g/100mL degree of accuracy

Refractive Index: 1.334nD to 1.360nD with granularity to measure down to .0005nD at a 0.0005nD degree of accuracy

Laxco™ refractometers are formally Westover Scientific refractometers
