Saccharomat V

The Saccharomat V is a high performance sugar polarimeter using the unique principle of quartz wedge compensation to determine sucrose concentration. The instrument has high measurement stability over the measurement range and does not require re-calibration.

  • Energy saving LED light source
  • High compensation speed
  • Indication of the optical density
  • Automatic temperature compensation with appropriate polarimeter tubes
  • User-specific methods
  • LIMS compatible software
  • Up to 1000 scales freely programmable
  • Continuous measurement
  • 7”  touch screen
