THE LATEST INNOVATION IN OSMOMETRY

THE LATEST INNOVATION IN OSMOMETRY

Why osmolality determination matters.
Osmolality is a fundamental measurement of the total solute concentration of body fluids including whole blood, serum, plasma, urine, feces, sweat, and tissue homogenate, and it is directly related to osmotic pressure. Osmotic pressure is of vital importance in biology as it relates to fluid balance, nutrient transfer, and waste removal processes in cellular organisms.

Why freezing point depression is the preferred method.
There are many methods for measuring concentration of solutions including: specific gravity, refractive index, and conductivity. Freezing point osmolality, however, is the only method which is truly independent from the size, shape, and other physical characteristics of the liquid solution. This is why freezing point depression is the industry-preferred solution and the gold standard in clinical laboratories around the world.

Theory of freezing point depression for osmolality determination.
Advanced Instruments' osmometers utilise the industry preferred freezing point depression method to determine the osmolality of body fluids. When solutes (particles) are dissolved in a solvent (water), the freezing point of the solution is lowered compared to that of the solvent alone. As more solute is added, the freezing point decreases further. Therefore, by precisely measuring the freezing point of the solution, the osmolality (i.e. concentration) can be determined. Freezing point osmometry can ascertain volatiles in solutions such as CO2, ammonia, and alcohol unlike vapor pressure osmometry.
