Misco Digital

The new Palm Abbe is a fourth-generation digital handheld refractometer that puts laboratory precision in the palm of your hand. Not just laboratory precision, but laboratory precision for the price of a traditional analog refractometer. It is exactly the kind of bold, cutting-edge technology you would expect from MISCO, the company that pioneered the digital handheld refractometer.

The Palm Abbe refractometer is fast, convenient, and easy to use. Simply place a drop or two of fluid in the well and press a button on the key-pad. The custom-designed microprocessor delivers a nearly instantaneous readout in refractive index, degrees Brix, or any one of a thousand different units of measure, allowing you to read directly in the units you desire. Nonlinear temperature compensation is automatic and insures that fluids read between 0 and 50 °C (+32 to 122 °F) are measured accurately.  Nonlinear temperature compensation is more accurate than the (linear) automatic temperature compensation (ATC) on analog refractometers.

The large dual-line LCD display is easily read, even in dim light, and removes the subjectivity associated with interpreting where a boundary line crosses tiny scale divisions. And, it is so easy to use! The user interface consists of two buttons, one to take readings and the other to step through various menu options.

Calibration is automatic and does not require the use of special calibration solutions or tools. The Palm Abbe refractometer automatically calibrates itself to water and is ready to use in seconds. No more screws to turn and nothing to adjust.  If you need NIST Traceable Certified Calibration, it can be ordered under Misco Palm Abbe Accessories below.

Misco PA201 Palm Abbe Digital Refractometer
The MISCO PA201 digital Brix refractometer is used extensively as a base scale for measuring metalworking fluids, lubricants, and industrial chemicals. It also is a valuable instrument for determining the sugar content in fruits, vegetables, juices, beverages, and in wine and beer making.
Misco PA202 Digital Refractometer
The Misco PA202 is a dual-scale digital refractometer with scales for measuring both Brix (to 85) and refractive index (to 1.5000). Both the Brix and refractive index scales can be used to measure a nearly unlimited number of fluids.
Misco PA202X Palm Abbe Dual Scale Digital Refractometer
The PA202X Palm Abbe Digital Refractometer is custom programmed with two scales. You can test ONE substance for TWO properties, or you can test TWO substances for one property.
PA200 Misco Palm Abbe Digital Refractometer Freeze Point
PA200 Misco Palm Abbe Digital Freeze Point Refractometer with four options: freeze point in either °F or °C for testing either Propylene Glycol or Ethylene Glycol
eMaple Misco Digital Maple Syrup Refractometer
eMaple Misco Digital Maple Syrup Refractometer is more accurate than a hydrometer and reduces the time that it takes to measure maple sap and maple syrup.
PA202X Misco Digital Palm Abbe Beer Refractometer
Dual and multi-scale digital beer refractometers will give you a much more accurate indication of true total sugar content of wort, as opposed to an estimate from a sucrose-based Brix refractometer. Misco beer scales are automatically temperature compensated specifically for wort.
Misco Palm Abbe Digital Urea Based Diesel Exhaust DEF RefractometersMisco Palm Abbe Digital Urea Based Diesel Exhaust DEF Refractometers
PA201X and PA202X Misco Palm Abbe Digital DEF Refractometer are ideal for testing and monitoring the concentration of urea-based Diesel Exhaust Fluid (DEF or AdBlue).
Misco Palm Abbe Digital Honey Refractometer
The Misco Digital Honey Refractometer is beneficial to professional beekeepers, honey producers, honey mixers, or anyone requiring the absolute most accurate, repeatable readings of moisture content and percent solids in honey.
PA202X and PA203X Misco Palm Abbe Digital Dairy™ Refractometer
Misco Digital-Dairy™ Refractometers provide reliable estimates of the percent solids in waste milk, IgG blood levels, blood plasma protein concentration, colostrum quality, and calf hydration.
PA203X Misco Palm Abbe Digital Wine Refractometer
The Misco Palm Abbe Wine Refractometer can provide an instant digital “field” determination of grape ripeness, grape-must concentration, grape-must density, and sugar content, as well as the potential and actual alcohol content of the finished wine.
PA202X and PA203X Misco Palm Abbe Digital Veterinary Refractometer
PA202X and PA203X Misco Palm Abbe Digital Veterinary Refractometers have veterinary urine scales for dog and cat specific gravity, total proteins, and Refractive Index.
Misco Palm Abbe Digital Seawater Refractometer
The Palm Abbe AQUAR Digital Seawater Refractometers are professional refractometers for testing seawater, salt water, and brackish ocean water for oceanography, aquaculture, aquariums, desalination plants, and ocean research.
Misco Palm Abbe Digital Automotive Refractometer
Misco Palm Abbe Digital Automotive Refractometer programmed with scales for ethylene glycol, propylene glycol, and specific gravity of sulfuric acid
Misco Palm Abbe Digital Refractometer Fire Industry Models
Misco Digital Refractometer for Fire Sprinkler Maintenance is programmed with scales for propylene glycol and glycerine, testing freeze point in F and % concentration by volume plus a 5th scale for refractive index of fire-fighting foam. Misco PA202 with dual refractive index and Brix scales is the ideal refractometer for measuring AFFF and FFFP firefighting foams.
Misco Palm Abbe 203X Digital Refractometer
The MISCO PA203 is a high-precision digital refractometer that can be programmed with up to 5 scales that match your unique fluid measurement needs, to create a truly custom refractometer.
