Would You Like Some Sugar with That?

Brix Refractometers

The new optical BRIX Refractometer from LW Scientific measures sugar content in liquids as diverse as wine, beer, fruit juices, soft drinks, milk, colostrum, and yeast cultures. It can be used in the lab or in the field, simply by putting a few drops of liquid onto the prism and reading the scale under ambient light. The BRIX Refractometer features a 0-32% scale, focusing eyepiece, automatic temperature compensation, and comes in a hard carry case.  

Measuring the quality of equine and bovine colostrum is easy, with BRIX scores of 22% or higher representing good quality in colostrum. 18-21% readings represent colostrum that can be used for second feedings, and scores below 17% will need to be supplemented.  

Don’t forget about our other best-selling Refractometer used for specific gravity in urine and total protein in serum!
