Focus (the the eye end) so that you can read the scale. Use fresh water for the zero setting. Requires a known % brix standard solution for accurate calibration or use extra virgin olive oil and set at 71.5 on the Brix scale. Olive oil should spread across the entire surface. Wait about 30 seconds and view under light. Adjust the blue horizon to read 71.5 with a screwdriver or the adjustment nut, depending on the model design. The unit is now calibrated. Dry with a clean cloth or tissue. Add sample and close cover so that there are no air bubbles. Read the content indicated by the blue horizon line. Dry and clean and replace in storage container.
