• Digital Hand-held Pocket Refractometer

Digital Hand-held Pocket Refractometer

  • For determining the quality of colostrum
  • Brix : 0.0 to 53.0% Brix
  • Temperature : 10.0 to 100°C

Protect and nurture the health of your livestock and newborn calves!

The ideal colostrum (first milk) Brix level is 20% and above.

This model can be used for determining the quality of colostrum. It measures the Brix value of colostrum, which has a correlation with the immunoglobulin (IgG) value contained in colostrum. 
If the Brix value of the colostrum is over 20%, you can safely assume it is high-quality colostrum. 
*Correlation coefficients may vary depending on the species of animal.

This instrument is equipped with NFC (Near Field Communication) technology.

Data history can be accessed by bringing PAL-NFC to any Android devices or PC-linked USB NFC Reader (in conformance to PC/SC specification).
