Ethanol (also called ethyl alcohol, grain alcohol, drinking alcohol, or simply alcohol) is a chemical compound, a simple alcohol with the chemical formula C2H 6O. Its formula can be also written as CH 3−CH 2−OH or C2H 5OH (an ethyl group linked to a hydroxyl group), and is often abbreviated as EtOH. Ethanol is a volatile, flammable, colourless liquid with a slight characteristic odour. It is a psychoactive substance and is the principal active ingredient found in alcoholic drinks.

Ethanol is naturally produced by the fermentation of sugars by yeasts or via petrochemical processes, and is commonly consumed as a popular recreational drug. It also has medical applications as an antiseptic and disinfectant. The compound is widely used as a chemical solvent, either for scientific chemical testing or in synthesis of other organic compounds, and is a vital substance used across many different kinds of manufacturing industries. Ethanol is also used as an alternative fuel source.

In addition to the Bluetooth enabled refractometers, ATAGO ® released refractometers with near-field communication (NFC) technology for the ease of storing and sharing data with phones, tablets, laptops, and other NFC-equipped devices. Simply by tapping NFC-equipped devices, up to 100 measurement data with the date and time are transferred in a matter of seconds. The NFC solution is simpler and prevents typical human errors in data collection and data generation.

With ever evolving movement of profound change in how human interact with machine automation, this upgrade seizes one’s time to write down measurements with a pen or paper.

The Palette series - digital refractometers, are compact battery operated instruments that can display the measured values of samples quickly with one touch of the START switch.
