High-tech in a nutshell – Anton Paar introduces a compact Abbemat refractometer

Abbemat 3X00 02Technology leader Anton Paar has launched three new compact refractometer models: Abbemat 3200, 3100, and 3000 . These instruments are available with or without temperature control in different temperature and measuring ranges. They ensure fast, easy, and precise refractive index and concentration measurements.

In the daily laboratory routine many tasks and responsibilities need to be handled. Complicated worksteps or equipment that clutters valuable workspace are not welcome. The new Anton Paar refractometers give exactly the functions needed, and smoothly integrate into laboratories in the beverage, food, chemicals, and fragrances industry, without taking up much space or time – or money.


Anton Paar’s range of Abbemat refractometers embodies over forty years of technical expertise. Careful engineering evolved into high-precision technologies that deliver reliable measurements. What counts is what is needed: Convenient operation as well as fast and precise results. That’s why the new Abbemat series combines the best of both worlds – high-level technology and easy handling. It offers premium technology, wrapped up in an intuitive design at an attractive price.

The new Abbemat models need only as much room as a sheet of printer paper, which saves valuable space on the laboratory bench.

The 5.8 inch intuitive colour touchscreen supports fast navigation, provides a precise overview of your measuring results and methods, and supports fast navigation. Low sample volume, nearly no maintenance, and an attractive price range allow you to stay within your time and money budget. Reliable refractive index measurements with an accuracy of ±0.0001 nD are obtained at the push of a button. The measurement data is stored on an internal data memory and can easily be exported or printed for further reference via USB, RS-232, or Ethernet ports.

The sample well and the measuring prism withstand even aggressive chemicals.
Three models are offered with or without temperature control in different temperature and measuring ranges to cover all eventualities needed for measurement. The Abbemat 3000 refractometer model has temperature corrected methods like °Brix, glucose and invert sugar for fast measuring results without the need of temperature control, i.e. in the quality control of sugars, food, or beverages. The Abbemat 3100 and Abbemat 3200 refractometer models have a built-in solid-state temperature control, which guarantees fast and even temperature adjustment at 20 °C and 25 °C (Abbemat 3100) or between 15 °C and 60 °C (Abbemat 3200). This Peltier temperature control eliminates the influence of temperature on the refractive index and ensures accurate, fast, and reliable results.

Abbemat refractometers are used for quality control of pure substances, concentration measurement in binary solutions, andfor determining further parameters correlating with the refractive index. Anton Paar provides more than 100 methods derived from the refractive index which can be uploaded onto the Abbemat refractometers.
