Milwaukee MA873 Digital Refractometer for Glucose measures the refractive index to determine the % Glucose in aqueous solutions. The refractive index of the sample is converted to % mass (%w/w) concentration units.

The measurement technique and temperature compensation employ methodology recommended in the ICUMSA Methods Book (Internationally recognized body for Sugar Analysis).

The Milwaukee digital Glucose refractometer is temperature compensated with a 0 to 85% Mass Glucose range and +/- 0.2 percent accuracy. It is easy to use with a simple two button operation and fast with a response time under 2 seconds. Maintenance is a breeze also with an easy-to-clean sealed flint glass prism and stainless steel well.

Quick and easy to use it is ideal for analysing the sugar content in a wide range of food products including fruit, energy drinks, puddings, tofu, jams, honey, soups and sauces.

Thousands of food and beverage professionals and hobbyists, from chefs and food quality professionals, wine makers, and beverage manufacturers have moved to digital Fructose measurement from less accurate and less precise optical refractometers.
