Reichert Vet360-Chek Refractometer 13940018
All-in-one dependable, automatic, digital, clinical refractometer for veterinary practice.
Compact, Powerful, Dependable, Accurate
The Reichert Vet360-Chek is a multi-scale clinical refractometer specifically designed for veterinary use. Unlike other models, this refractometer was designed for multi-scales developed using the appropriate chemistry data for large and small animals.
Using digital technology, the measurements are accurate and precise.
Four measurement scales can be quickly accessed with a simple push of a button:
- Canine Urine Specific Gravity (USG)
- Feline Urine Specific Gravity (USG)
- Large Animal Urine Specific Gravity (USG)
- Serum Protein Concentration for all animals
The Reichert Vet360-Chek is the first choice in a true veterinary clinical refractometer. Measure with confidence.
In many veterinary practices, clinical refractometers designed for humans are being used to measure the Urine Specific Gravity and Serum Protein Concentration of animals. Unfortunately, these measurements are not accurate and can lead to a misdiagnosis of the animals condition. All clinical refractometers measure Refractive Index and then correlates that measurement to a USG or Serum Protein value that is imprinted on a scale. That correlation is based on the chemistry tables of the particular species, e.g., human or animal.
The Reichert Vet360-Chek digital refractometer follows in the tradition of our Reichert RHINO Vet360 analog clinical model in that the actual chemistry data from animals, not humans, are used so that the measurement is accurate and precise, all the time.
In addition, the Vet360-Chek has separate Urine Specific Gravity measurement scales for Feline and Canine. Numerous research studies have shown that the urine chemistry from cats differ from dogs and larger animals. If one measures a cat's Urine Specific Gravity on a refractometer scale designed for either human or dog, the refractometer will produce falsely elevated levels. The Reichert Vet360-Chek solves this problem by offering multiple measurement scales programmed with the specific chemistry tables for dogs, cats, and large animals.
