Polartronic H532 

High-resolution Polarimeter

The Polartronic H532 is a high-resolution polarimeter with extremely high accuracy meant for scientific research, quality laboratories, and R&D. Measuring optically active substances and determining optical rotary dispersion are made simple with this reliable and precise polarimeter. This instrument is calibration-free and requires minimal maintenance.

The Polartronic H532 is a high precision, high resolution (0.0001°) polarimeter with up to 5 wavelengths and utilizes the same advanced software as the ATR Series of refractometers.

The Polartronic H532 features a large programmable display for data input such as sample identification numbers, statistical evaluation in the case of multiple measurements and user-defined protocols for output via a printer or PC, and is individually adjustable for each of the 10 available methods.

With AQUISYS 2 software, the Polartonic H532 meets all requirements according to 21 CFR Part 11.
