Osmometry measures the total molar concentration of dissolved solids in any solution. The freezing point of a solution is depressed in direct relation to the amount of solute in solution.
Freezing-point depression osmometry is capable of measuring all osmotically active solutes within the range of 0-4000 mOsmol/kgH2O, including volatile substances, making it the most sensitive and accurate technology available. Osmometry is critical in improving patient care by its direct measurement of body fluid osmolality, thus providing clinical information not available by any other means.
Advanced Instruments Osmometers determine the osmolality of solutions using freezing point depression (FPD). It is Ideal for serum, urine or other bodily fluids in clinical applications; and media or formulations in pharmaceutical, biotech or industrial applications.
