Misco Palm Abbe Digital Veterinary Refractometers

MISCO VETMED02

Did you know that you can’t measure feline urine with most refractometers?

Numerous research studies, as far back as 1956, have shown that the urine from cats, rabbits, and guinea pigs differs from that of humans, dogs, and large animals.  In fact, specific gravity readings of feline urine measured on a refractometer designed for humans will yield falsely elevated values. This is because refractometers do not measure specific gravity directly.  They actually measure the refractive index of a fluid and convert the readings into specific gravity. This conversion can be different for different species.

The Misco VETMED02 Refractometer is a portable digital testing instrument designed for the determination of urine specific gravity in a clinical veterinary practice or testing laboratory.  The VETMED02 may be used to instantly and accurately measure urine specific gravity with species specific scales for canine and large animal urine, as well as separate scales for testing feline urine.

MISCO VETMED01

The protein scale on many clinical human refractometers is based on a protein-to-nitrogen ratio of 6.25% instead of 6.54%, which studies indicate is a more accurate value for veterinary use. Furthermore, since many of these instruments are not temperature compensated, they will introduce an error into the readings if they are not taken at 20ºC (68ºF).

The Misco VETMED01 Refractometer is designed specifically for the veterinary clinical practice.  It is fast, convenient, and easy to use.  Simply place a few drops of specimen in the stainless-steel well and press a button.  The custom-designed microprocessor delivers a nearly instantaneous readout of urine specific gravity or blood plasma protein concentration.

The protein scale on the VETMED01 is based on accepted veterinary data and uses a 6.54% protein-to-nitrogen ratio.  There are separate urine specific gravity scales for feline and for canine and large animals.  Dozens of other scales are available (including the urine specific gravity of guinea pigs and rabbits) and can be mixed and matched for a custom instrument.   

Nonlinear temperature compensation is automatic and insures that fluids that are read between 0 and 50°C (+32 to 122°F) are measured accurately.

MISCO PALM ABBE RUBBER ARMOR JACKET

Adding a Rubber Armor Jacket to a Palm Abbe refractometer increases its durability and provides a better grip.  Made of high-grade silicone rubber, the Rubber Armor Jacket is custom fit and will help protect your Palm Abbe from minor bumps and scratches.

Custom contoured bumpers provide a soft, firm grip while also adding additional shock protection.  The Rubber Armor Jacket is soft to the touch and fits the Palm Abbe like a glove.  It is easily slid over the refractometer and does not have to be removed before use.

The durable jacket is tear and chemical resistant and weighs only 1.8 oz. (51 grams).  There is even a hole on top for a carabiner (included) so that you can hang the Palm Abbe refractometer from your belt loop.  The form-fitting Rubber Armor Jacket fits the Palm Abbe PA201, PA202, and PA203 series instruments and comes in three colors (black, gray, and safety orange).

Although the Rubber Armor Jacket is not guaranteed to completely protect your instrument from damage due to shocks and impacts, it does provide an additional layer of protection and provides a better grip to help you avoid dropping it in the first place.

Order one today and get a better grip on your refractometer!

CERTIFIED CALIBRATION

NIST Traceable Certified Refractometer Calibrations - The MISCO Refractometer Certified Calibration program provides all the requirements for the confirmation of calibration accuracies for refractometers and for the preparation and control of measurement standards traceable to the U.S. National Institute of Standards & Technology (NIST). The intention of this program is to minimize uncertainty of measurements and minimize the risk of refractometers producing results having unacceptable errors. This program is compliant with International Standard ISO 17025.

  • M-CAL1-PA2XX-2  Two-point NIST Traceable Certified Calibration, with Level I documentation  $65.00
