About Index Instruments

Index Instruments have been making refractometers since 1980 and offer a wealth of experience in this specialised field of scientific instrumentation.

All of our equipment is designed with simplicity of use in mind. With their automatic control routines, even unskilled personnel can obtain quick, accurate results, freeing qualified technicians or chemists for other work. Training time is minimised and maintenance costs are very low.
We spend a high proportion of our turnover in a programme of continuous research and development to improve and innovate our products.

For over 30 years our instruments have been used in Education, Research, QC Laboratories and Production Plants, particularly in the sugar and pharmaceutical industries.

The company is based near Cambridge in the UK and the majority of our instruments are designed, assembled, calibrated and tested here. You are very welcome to visit us in our extensive premises and see for yourself what makes us a world leading manufacturer of refractometers.
