Refractometers measure the critical angle of refraction through a sample. The critical angle of refraction will change with concentration.

Rheometers

Rheometers characterize a liquid according to its viscous properties and elastic responses.

Solar Radiation Instruments

Solar radiation instruments measure the spectral range of radiation, including global solar radiation (sun + sky), net radiation (incoming solar - reflected solar) and the photosynthetic light spectrum.

Solid Phase Extraction Cartridges and Disks

Solid phase extraction (SPE) cartridges and disks are used to clean up a sample before using a chromatographic or other analytical method to quantify the amount of analyte(s) in the sample.

Stability Chambers and Rooms

Stability chambers and stability rooms are temperature-controlled and humidity-controlled environmental units that provide stable conditions for storage and testing purposes.

Surface Area and Pore Size Analyzers

Surface area and pore size analyzers are used to measure the surface area and pore size of a sample.
