In 2017, ATAGO® introduced the world’s first all-in-one portable CO2 meter, the CooRe, which measures CO2 concentration, pressure, brix, and temperature. The CooRe is a perfect addition to your beverage company, and it liberates intense labor work of manual shaking! This instrument can easily pierce through any cans and bottles. It only takes one minute to measure and can be either battery operated or plug-in operated. You now have the option to decide how to power it on, depending on where you are! There is no other CO2 meter in the world that can measure CO2 and brix in one unit that can be taken anywhere.  With this unit, you can take consistent measurement results regardless of who is measuring; all it takes is one to press a button! ATAGO®’s high capability of innovating new products that are new to the world is what makes ATAGO® stand out. Our RePo series were also the first in the world to measure both angle of rotation and brix in one unit. It is a portable, 2 in 1 hybrid instrument that requires no more observation tubes! We are always coming up with revolutionized ideas to create the most efficient products that meets our customer’s needs.


Our other quality control devices such as the PAL-BX/ACID101 for beer would also be a great asset for the craft beverage industry! PAL-BX/ACID101 for beer measures both total acidity and brix in one unit. It also displays the sugar/acid ratio. This unit is fully equipped with automatic temperature compensation and is even water resistant. This handheld digital acidity and brix meter is sure to make your life easier! ATAGO® is constantly thinking of ways to maximize benefit for our customers, which is why our units do not require any titration! Save money and save the environment at the same time. For other craft beverage industries such as apple cider or sake, we got you covered as well!
