What to Look for in a Benchtop pH Meter

A functional and accurate pH meter is integral to a microbiology laboratory. pH measurements are used for various applications, such as testing municipal water quality supplies, blood chemistry, swimming pools, soil, environmental remediation, the spirits brewing, manufacturing, and many other applications. Choosing the right pH meter for your specific needs [...]

Choosing the Right pH Meter for Your Laboratory or Field Applications

A few pieces of equipment are imperative to have in your microbiology, synthetic biology, or other laboratory. Having the right pH meter in your laboratory, or using the correct one in fieldwork, is essential to perform numerous types of applications, from testing soil to water quality. Regarding pH meters vs [...]

Improving Accuracy and Reproducibility with Automated Colony Picking

The process of colony picking involves selecting a colony of single-strain, pure microbes so they can be duplicated later. Colony picking is used in a vast amount of applications, including polymerase chain reaction (PCR), mass spectrometry, protein purification, and others. Decades ago, all colony picking was performed by hand, which [...]

Exploring the Working Principles of pH Meters: How Do They Measure pH?

A pH meter is used to measure the alkalinity or acidity of a substance, usually a solution. The pH scale itself is numbered from 0 to 14, with 0 being the most acidic and 14 being the most basic (alkaline). The principle of a pH meter, or any pH reading, [...]

pH Meters: A Comprehensive Guide to pH Measurement and Monitoring

One of the more fundamental tools in every laboratory, a pH meter is an absolute necessity. Decades ago, researchers would have used a pH indicator kit, but in the interest of time and faster processing, a meter (whether benchtop or handheld) is a staple in a modern lab. The “p” [...]

Introduction to Synthetic Biology: Exploring the Basics and Applications

No introduction to synthetic biology would be complete without the precise definition provided by The National Human Genome Institute, which describes syn-bio as “a field of science that involves redesigning organisms for useful purposes by engineering them to have new abilities.” A complete history and introduction to synthetic biology would [...]

A Guide to pH Measurement Instruments in the Lab

Why Do Workers Like Using an Automated Pipette Machine? Lab workers compare sample ratings with pH standards called buffers to garner reliable results. Measuring accurately is all-important when making complex pH measurements are important to get accurate.  pH measurement instruments help laboratories compare acidity and alkalinity of solutions at given [...]

Standard Operating Protocol for Calibration of pH Meter

The calibration of the pH meter using an SOP (standard operating procedure/protocol) is highly important and serves a very important purpose - keeping the data that the electrodes generate within specifications. pH determinations need several measurement, calibration, and maintenance processes. If an electrode is not properly calibrated, it can lead [...]
