Laboratory Reports and Application Support

Bellingham+Stanley has an extensive database of laboratory reports covering Refractometry and Polarimetry. Should you be investigating or wish to know more about a specific application, please contact us with details and we will search our database to see if we can help.

Free PC Software

General software associated with refractometers and polarimeters. Products include a Refractive Index to Brix converter, software to assist with identifying spectral lines when using arc lamps. Instrument specific software is also available such as RFM user defined scale creation, user TC creation, data aquisition etc. Click here.

Legislation and Regulation

All sugar scales are based on % w/w sucrose in water (1974 ICUMSA). All B+S Refractometers are adjusted to read at 20 °C/ 589.3 nm, in accordance with International Standard Practice.

These products comply with the requirements of the EMC Directive 2014/30/EU and the Low Voltage Directive 2014/35/EU. Bellingham + Stanley pursue a policy of continuous product development and improvement and as such, any information in this website or contained in any published documentation therein may be updated or withdrawn without notice.
