Packages for Teaching & Research in the Biological Sciences:

OX1LP Dissolved Oxygen Package

The OX1LP Dissolved Oxygen Packages are based on the use Polarographic Dissolved Oxygen Electrodes and may be used to measure Photosynthesis and/or Respiration in the Aqueous Phase, using Suspensions of Plants, Animals and Organelles (chloroplasts and mitochondria). It may also be used to monitor chemical and biochemical reactions that either produce or consume O2 in the Aqueous Phase. The Dissolved Oxygen Package comes complete with instruments, accessories, software and interface.

The OX1LP Dissolved Oxygen Packages are available with DO Electrodes of different volumes from 100µl (flow-through) to 50ml. The O2 electrode within the water-jacketed cuvette may be used for measurements of O2 consumption (or production) by biological samples or enzymatic reactions. Calibration is a simple 2-point process, and all the required accessories for calibration are supplied as part of the package.

The Dissolved Oxygen Package provides excellent accuracy and a resolution of 0.03% O2 (where air saturated water: 100%). Dissolved O2 values may be expressed in any desired units (mg/L; % Dissolved O2; ppm etc.) based on a simple calibration procedure. The water jacket allows calibrations and experiments to be carried out at the same temperature, or a simple temperature correction can be made in software for measurements made at different temperatures.

OX1LP Dissolved Oxygen Packages may be provided with Q-Box Rugged Case for Easy Transport and Storage

An Optional S172 Thermistor may be provided for measurements of Temp. inside zthe DO Electrode Cuvette
