The PAL-1 "Pocket" Digital Refractometer from Atago Japan uses the Brix % scale to measures total dissolved solids or TDS in aqueous solutions. The most common examples is the determination of sugar content in fresh fruit, vegetables and juices, jams, sauces and condiments. Widely used for quality control monitoring within the manufacturing process and also finished goods.

The PAL-1 has a wide measuring range from 0-53% Brix with 0.1% resolution.  

It is ultra compact and lightweight for total portability and is IP65 protected against dust and water jets making it easy to clean up after use under running water. It runs on 2 x AAA batteries (11,000 measurements) and features Automatic Temperature Compensation "ATC" for samples of all temperatures through use of advanced algorithms.

Usage is extremely simple with one touch measurement. As little as 0.3ml (2-3 drops) sample is required for testing and results are determined quickly within 3 seconds. Zero calibration can be completed with water.

Top quality made in Japan to the highest standards by the leaders in refractometry with 76 years experience.
