Atago Malaysia PAL-COVID-19 Ethyl Alcohol Refractometer
Sanitizer % Checker
This model is specially designed to measure Ethyl Alcohol % used as sanitizer. Check alcohol % and take effective measures against COVID-19!
|It has been reported that rubbing alcohol (70%) is effective for disinfecting skin such as hands *. However, it is said that there is no effect unless it exceeds 70%. In addition, too high alcohol concentration may cause rough skin, so it is important to use at an appropriate concentration.
*The standard of the Center for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) is 60% or more. The Japanese Ministry of Health, Labor and Welfare recommends 70% or more. Also, CDC recommends 70% or more for disinfecting the surface of objects.
Low Alcohol concentration is ineffective. High Alcohol causes rough skin
How can we prove the 70% ethanol concentration?
Measurement method using PAL-COVID-19
|To measure, you first need to dilute your sample using the included spoon and beaker. Place 1 spoon of your rubbing ethanol and 1 spoon of water in the beaker and stir well.|
|(1) Place 0.3 ml on the measuring part|
|(2) Press the start button …|

|Due to the effects of the COVID-19, there are no disinfectant and disinfection ethanol. what should I do?||The disinfection ethanol can be handmade.|
|How to make disinfection ethanol?||Handmade disinfection ethanol can be made with absolute ethanol and purified water (water).|
|Please tell me how to make it in detail.||Disinfection ethanol is completed by adding about 20% of purified water to absolute ethanol.
For example, make about 100 ml of disinfection ethanol.
• Add 80 ml of absolute ethanol.
• Add 20 ml of purified water and mix.
If you have a PAL-COVID-19, you can check the concentration of the diluted liquid, so it is also possible to dilute it in a proportion.
※If you do not have purified water, you can substitute water (tap water or mineral water).
|What is the difference between absolute ethanol, ethanol, and disinfecting ethanol?||The concentration of ethanol contained in each is different.
• Absolute Ethanol: Ethanol 99.5vol% or more
• Ethanol: Ethanol 95.1～96.9vol%
• Disinfecting Ethanol: Ethanol 76.9～81.4vol%
Disinfecting ethanol is used for disinfection, because the disinfecting effect is best when the ethanol concentration is around 80%.
|Where can I buy absolute ethanol or purified water?||You can buy at a drug store.|
|• Water resistant (IP65)
• Can be washed under running water
|• External Light Interference (ELI)
• To ensure accurate measurement results, the PAL is programmed with the ELI function which displays the [nnn] warning message when intense direct light is detected.
|• High temperature samples can be measured||• The sample stage is made of metal|
|• Sample size: 2-3 drops||• Calibration with water only|
|• Measuring time: 2-3 seconds!||• Automatic Temperature Compensation (ATC)|
|• Display screen: Backlight||• NFC feature
• Measurement history (up to 100 items) can be read by touching a contactless IC card reader / writer connected to a compatible Android smartphone or a personal computer.
