Monitoring pH in a sealed environment

Monitoring pH in a sealed environment

Jonathan is a PhD student in the Thordarson group at UNSW Australia. Their research group is developing supramolecular peptide hydrogels for biomedical applications. These hydrogels are highly responsive to various stimuli such as pH. “The BlueBox makes taking...
How do you clean and store your pH Electrode?

How do you clean and store your pH Electrode?

Cleaning pH Electrodes If you are noticing slower response times when using your pH electrode, check for visible build up of material on the glass membrane bulb. Electrodes which have no broken parts, and have not been allowed to dry out can often be restored to...

Last week Instrument Works presented at the Asian Pacific Confederation of Chemical Engineering (APCChE) conference on a recent collaboration, investigating how junior researchers use data acquisition equipment in the lab and reported on the success of a recent...
Understanding Temperature Compensation in pH

Understanding Temperature Compensation in pH

The output of a pH electrode is effected by the temperature of the solution being measured, and whether temperature compensation is needed will depend on the pH accuracy required. The relationship between the pH and temperature is given by the Nernst equation: E =...
