Osmolality is a general measure of the particle concentration in a solute. Osmometry is affected only by the number of particles dissolved in a liquid and not by the physical or chemical properties of the solutes. Due to this linear correlation, the osmolality of a sample can be determined by precisely measuring its freezing point.
KNAUER is one of the pioneers in the field of osmometry and known for its reliable and user-friendly instruments for many decades. The proven technology of freezing point determination, in combination with the robust and intelligent design of the KNAUER‘s instrument, allows fast and reproducible measurements.
