Function and Applications

Bench-top LED polarimeter to precisely determine the optical rotation of substances by measuring the optical rotation over the entire measuring range at the same high accuracy in the educational field (physics and chemistry) and quality/process control in labs. The monochromatic LED light source provides immediate operation and unparalleled performance in terms of illumination with a much longer lifespan than the conventional solutions using sodium bulbs.


  • Designed for teaching and QC purposes
  • Combines wide measuring range with simplicity
  • Unparalleled illumination with 30x longer lifespan than sodium bulbs
  • Plug & measure, no heating time required
  • New design for a compact and space-saving solution
  • Low voltage, external power supply for enhanced safety and convenient servicing
