Atago 4410 Digital Pocket Urine Specific Gravity Refractometer, PAL-10S PAL Series, Urine Specific Gravity : 1.000 to 1.060 Measurement Range
Pocket >> Palm >> Perform IoT Supported With NFC Technology
The PAL-10S is a digital hand-held compact refractometer to measure urine specific gravity. To operate it, simply place a drop of urine on the prism top and press the "Start"key. Then, the urine specific gravity value will be displayed on the LCD instantly.
A urinalysis is a test of your urine. A urinalysis is used to detect and manage a wide range of disorders, such as urinary tract infections, kidney disease and diabetes. A urinalysis involves checking the appearance, concentration and content of urine. Abnormal urinalysis results may point to a disease or illness
Urinalysis results can have many interpretations. Abnormal findings are a warning that something may be wrong and should be looked at further. Normal urinalysis results do not mean there is no illness. Urinalysis is only one screening test that can provide a general overview of a person’s health

The Visual Examination
During the visual examination of the urine, the laboratory scientist may look at the urine’s colour, clarity, and concentration. Urine can be a variety of colours, most often shades of yellow, from very pale or colourless to very dark or amber.
The depth of urine colour is also a crude indicator of urine concentration:
- Pale yellow or colourless urine indicates dilute urine where lots of water is being excreted.
- Dark yellow urine indicates concentrated urine and the excretion of waste products in a smaller quantity of water, such as is seen with the first morning urine, with dehydration, and during a fever.
The Chemical Examination
The first test, specific gravity, is a measure of urine concentration and is measured using a chemical test.
There are no “abnormal” specific gravity values. This test simply indicates how concentrated the urine is. Specific gravity measurements provide a comparison of the amount of substances dissolved in urine as compared to pure water. If there were no solutes present, the SG of urine would be 1.000 – the same as pure water. Since all urine have some substances dissolved, a urine SG of 1.000 is not possible. If a person drinks excessive quantities of water in a short period of time or gets an intravenous (IV) infusion of large volumes of fluid, then the urine SG may be as low as 1.002. The upper limit of the test pad, an SG of 1.035, indicates a concentrated urine.
A new ergonomic design for comfort and ease of use! In pursuit of an "easy to use" , "easy to operate" and ergonomic architecture of new instruments, ATAGO has achieved a "palm fitting" masterpiece as well as unit that is high in hygienic properties. By reducing the number of unnecessary assembly parts, we have reduced the risks of a germ reproductive environment. Through our efforts to produce a hygienic instrument to be used in any industry, these units are designed to be completely washable. The new PAL series has been approved by the HACCP, and are equipped with the new ELI feature, which ensures accurate measurements - even outdoors. Requests from our customers worldwide are reflected in the development of the new PAL units
ATAGO Releases NFC (Near Field Communication) Equipped Refractometers
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.
How to Use NFC Feature on PAL:
Step 1) For cellphones, download NFC reader app or turn on the NFC feature. For computers, connect the NFC reader.
Step 2) Place NFC reader to the PAL device.
Step 3) Download data.
Quick and easy three steps
Measurement Methods in 3 easy steps
Apply 2-3 drops on the prism surface.
Press the START key.
Measurement value and prism temperature are displayed in 3 seconds!
|Light & Compact, 100g. Ergonomically designed for one-handed operation.The innovative design makes it easy to pour out and remove a sample, but difficult to spill the sample||Sample size 2-3 drops.|
|The speedy performance of the PAL is amazing. Simply put a drop of a sample on the prism surface and press the START key. The Brix value ( sugar content / concentration ) will be displayed in just 3 seconds.||High temperature sample can be measured.|
|Protection class of the PAL is IP65. You can rinse off the sample by running water on the sample stage. The design allows the user to easily wipe off the sample. Will float if accidentally dropped in water||Revolutionary new External Light interference (ELI) feature Patented|
When intense light penetrates the prism of a digital refractometer, the light waves interfere with the sensor, which may lead to inaccurate measurements. To ensure accurate measurement results, the PAL is programmed with the ELI function which displays the [nnn] warning message when intense direct light is detected. Forming a habit of shading the sample stage with your hand and re-pressing the START key (when the warning message from the ELI function is displayed) will ensure accurate measurement results each time
|The sample stage is designed to keep sample solutions from spilling out.||Calibration with water only.|
|The Automatic Temperature Compensation function of the PAL enables you to take measurement readings regardless of the ambient temperature.||Convenient Storage case.|
|New Digital Hand-Held "Pocket" Meter for PAL-Series Equipped with NFC Data Transmission Function Data history can be accessed by bringing PAL-NFC to any Android devices or PC-linked USB NFC Reader.|
