A refractometer works on the principle of refraction, which describes how light bends as it crosses the boundary between one medium and another. This device is very easy to use, even non-digital, analog refractometers.

A refractometer is used to measure the water content in liquids. It measures the refractive index of the liquid, which changes according to the moisture content.

Refractometers are most commonly used in the laboratory and in agricultural, food, chemical, and manufacturing industries. Choose the refractometer for your needs on Prime Lab Med!
