Laboratory pH Meter for testing in Microplates and Tubes
The Rapid_pH™ benchtop pH meter reduces the time and tedium associated with manual pH testing. Manual use of Laboratory pH meters typically requires endless rinsing, drying, immersing, waiting for stabilization and recording of the result. The Rapid_pH automated pH meter makes your life so much easier by completely automating all of these steps at the press of a single click.
Not only is the pH of all of your samples measured quickly, but your accuracy and precision will be greatly improved. The accompanying Rapid_pH software makes it extremely simple to calibrate the pH meter using standard pH calibration buffers. Once calibrated, the results of the pH probe have an accuracy of +/- 0.05 pH units. pH sample volumes can be as small as 75 ul in half area 96 well microplates. Larger volumes are not a problem.
The Rapid_pH automated pH meter enables pH testing of large
sets of samples as never before possible:
- Provides walk away time from pH testing to perform more important tasks
- Increase throughput of testing
- Accurate to 0.05 pH
- Automated assures consistency of results
- pH measurement range from 0.0 to 14.0
- Easy pH meter calibration
- Completely automated protocol, requires no user intervention during operation
- Can be used as part of a larger automated system
The Rapid_pH software is intuitive so it is easy to calibrate the pH meter and then run your pH samples with minimal training. The Rapid_pH software allows you to import data about your sample sets and export the pH results. The pH meter calibration screen is shown below. Simply select the type of plate you are using, enter the standards (any number of repetitions is supported), and press the play button:
pH samples are run from a similar screen. In this case, the user picks the microplate format, then either manually selects the wells to be read or imports the data from a saved file that the user creates. A run can be run in row or column order. The Rapid_pH used Mettler Toledo InLab Micro Probes. It is not compatible with HANNA pH probes or Thermo Fisher pH probes.
