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 used for determining the sugar content in fruits, vegetables, juices, beverages, and in wine and beer making.
Misco PA202 Digital Refractometer
The new Palm Abbe is a fourth-generation digital handheld refractometer that puts laboratory precision in the palm of your hand. The PA202 has a very wide range and scales for Brix from 0 to 85 & Refractive Index from 1.3330 to 1.5040.
Misco PA202X Palm Abbe
The PA202X Palm Abbe Digital Refractometer is custom programmed with two scales.
PA201X and PA202X Misco Palm Abbe Digital DEF Refractometer
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).
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 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.
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
PA203X Misco Palm Abbe Digital Refractometer Fire Industry Model
Misco Digital Refractometer programmed with scales for propylene glycol and glycerine, testing freeze point in F and % concentration by volume plus 5th scale for refractive index of fire-fighting foam
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.
