The Hanna Instruments HI 96801 is a portable, waterproof meter that measures the refractive index of samples in order to display sugar content in a substance, displaying results within seconds.
To take a reading, the sample well must be calibrated with distilled or deionized water, followed by a few drops of the sample liquid. A dual-level LCD screen displays the measurement and temperature within several seconds. The meter converts the refractive index of the sample to sucrose concentration in units of percent by weight (%Brix, also referred to as degrees Brix).
The single 9V battery-operated device has Automatic Temperature Compensation (ATC), and automatically powers off after three minutes of non-use. The meter has a range of 0 to 85%Brix/0 to 80 degrees C (32 to 176 degrees F) with accuracy + or - 0.2 %Brix / + or - 0.3 degrees C (+ or -0.5 degrees F) and a resolution of 0.1 %Brix/0.1 degrees C (0.1 degrees F). The meter uses the methodology from the ICUMSA Methods Book (International Commission for Uniform Methods of Sugar Analysis). Its dimensions are 19.2(W) x 10.2(D) x 6.7 (H) cm, and it weighs 420 g.
Refractometers measure refractive index, which is the optical characteristic of a substance and the number of dissolved particles in it. Refractive index is the ratio of the speed of light in empty space to the speed of light in the substance. Refractometers are often used in the beverage making process to determine sugar content.
Hanna Instruments manufactures a wide variety of analytical instrumentation, including pH meters, multi-parameter meters, electrodes, chemical reagents and buffer solutions.

you do have to calibrate it every time you use it and make sure you clean it well between samples pressing the "read" button until it displays 0 again instead of simply zeroing it out.
but the whole process doesn't take more than a couple of seconds, a couple minutes at most if you take your time or the sample you measured was to thick and/or sticky.
I simply love it for it's simplicity and because it takes out the guessing of the optical units.
dont know if i just got one from a bad batch or something.

Haven't had a chance to use this yet, which is the only reason it sits at 4 stars. I won't lie it's a little bit out of expertise. I bought it so I could experiment with a friend! Read morePublished 9 months ago by nick masterpol
