Oxygen Measurement Overview

Hansatech Instruments Ltd Oxygen Electrode Measurement Systems are based around the S1 Clark type oxygen electrode disc. The oxygen electrode systems featured on this website are configured to allow studies within a wide range of applications in cellular respiration and photosynthesis research. The systems are divided into 2 categories.

  • Liquid-phase
    Oxygen electrode systems are available for the measurement of oxygen evolution or uptake from chloroplasts and other suspended plant photosynthetic materials (micro-algae etc.) and oxygen consumption by various components including plant roots or various plant or animal cell suspensions including mitochondria respiration studies. These may be effectively monitored using different combinations of modular items that together form compact, user-friendly systems for research applications or teaching.
  • Gas-phase
    Gas-phase oxygen electrode systems allow the measurement of oxygen evolution or uptake within a sealed sample chamber. The sample chamber is designed to accommodate 10cm2 leaf discs which are cut using a special leaf disc cutter. However, any sample type such as root sections, lichens, mosses, conifer needles or small seeds may be used.

To learn more about these systems and to determine which instrument best suits your application, please get in contact with PP Systems to speak to a products specialist.  We look forward to being of assistance.

NEW Oxytherm+

Oxytherm+ is supplied in 2 versions; Oxytherm+R (Respiration) and Oxytherm+P (Photosynthesis). Each version is fitted with an advanced electronic oxygen electrode chamber with a specific feature set to suit the intended purpose.

Both versions offer precision sample and sensor temperature control between 3 – 40°C via an integral Peltier element. Chamber temperature is configured from within the OxyTrace+ Windows software with actual chamber temperature indicated on an LCD display mounted on the front panel of the Oxytherm+ electrode chamber. A tricolour LED indicates if the chamber is cooling (blue), heating (red) or at set temperature (green).

NEW Oxytherm+R

Oxytherm+R is perfectly suited to measurements of cellular respiration with its predecessor used widely all over the world in measurements of mitochondrial respiration. Oxytherm+R is fitted with a gas-tight version of the plunger.

Liquid Phase Photosynthesis Systems

Oxytherm+ P

NEW Oxytherm+P

The Oxytherm+P has additional functionality to provide optimum suitability for photosynthesis studies. 2 high-intensity white LED light sources are mounted against the outer wall of the reaction vessel. This provides uniform illumination of samples between 1 and 2ml in volume up to 4,000μmols m-2 s-1. (blue), heating (red) or at set temperature (green).
