Easy to use

With its robust metal housing and the user-friendly operation system the Allrounder is a high-performance polarimeter for different applications.


The SCHMIDT + HAENSCH Polartronic V Allrounder is designed for the polarimetric determination of starch in raw materials. Polartronic® V is perfectly suited for the sugar industry, food and beverage production laboratories, and the pulp and paper industries, where it can assist in determining starch and cellulose content.

The SCHMIDT + HAENSCH Polartronic V can also be applied for pharma applications such as chirality testing and the determination of enantiomeric excess. Polartronic V measurements comply with the International Pharmacopeia, OIML, ASTM, ICUMSA, Australian Standard K157.

Product in detail

With its robust metal housing and the user-friendly operation system the Polartronic® V demonstrates high-performance for different applications. Due to its ability to measure continuously it is applicable for control of changes in concentration, depending on time or reaction. Data can be stored in internal measuring data storage. GLP/GMP conform data can be transferred to printer or PC. The long-lasting LED light source and the remote diagnostics and servicing contribute to a minimal maintenance effort. Calibrations can be performed with certified Quartz Control Plates made in Germany. Together with the Aquisys 2 software with internal 21 CFR Part 11 software and temperature-controller tubes it is also perfectly suited for pharma applications.
