A fusion of index of refraction and angle of optical rotation - Making the invisible, visible-Brix can only indicate the overall amount of dissolved solids in a solution. With REPO-1, it is possible to determine if a product has been adulterated by measuring the optical rotation.

Announcing an All-in-One, refractometer and polarimeter hybrid unit. As little as 3mL sample, Repo-1 can measure both brix and optical rotation of the sample. With the press of a button, purity, international sugar scale, specific rotation, and concentration can be displayed. Users can also set an upper and lower measurement limit. An indicator light alerts the user if a measurement value is within the limits, allowing for optimal efficiency.RePo-1 can be utilized for many uses, including helping to determine the rate of crystallization in honey.

2 in 1

Brix alone can only indicate the overall amount of dissolved solids in a solution. With REPO-1, it is possible to determine if a product has been adulterated by measuring the optical rotation. For example, fructose rotates light to the left while glucose rotates light to the right. If a sample has been adulterated with glucose, it will make the optical rotation readings appear more positive than a pure solution.

Compact Size

Great portability, 10.1×16.0×3.8cm and weighs only 325g.

Automatically calculated scales

Press "User" to select the desired scale: Purity, International Sugar Scale, Specific Rotation, and Concentration.

Measurement evaluation indicator

Measurements are evaluated against pre-set tolerancelimits, and the result is indicated by green or red light. (Upper and lower tolerance limits must be set in advance to using this function)

 

 

Application exemple

Sugar manufactures and refineries

Analyzing inverted sugar syrups

Analyzing fragrances

Honey industries

  • Investigating how fast different honey crystallizes by determining the fructose and glucose content
  • Researching honey collected from the same district, or honey collected from the same flower
