Respiration Vials with Integrated Optical Oxygen and Temperature Sensors
- Vials with ca. 4 ml or ca. 20 ml
- For small scale respirometry or metabolic rate measurements
- Track oxygen levels in the liquid phase and simultaneously in the gaseous headspace
- Measures simultaneously temperature and oxygen in gas or water
- For true temperature compensation of the oxygen measurement
- Lids with septum
- No oxygen consumption
- >3 years shelf time
The new optical temperature sensors from PyroScience are based on an innovative technology utilizing temperature-sensing properties of luminescent indicators. The combined respiration vials have an integrated optical temperature and oxygen sensor for contactless measurements in gaseous or liquid samples. The ready assembled respiration vials with integrated optical temperature and oxygen sensor stripes are available with a volume of ca. 4mL (TOVIAL4) or with ca. 20mL (TOVIAL20). Separately available adapter rings ADVIAL4 and ADVIAL20 allow for easy fixation of optical fibers connecting the respiration vials to the FireStingO2 optical oxygen meter from PyroScience. The elongated shape of the sensors allows simulatenous oxygen and temperature measurements at different heights within the vial by simply sliding the adapter rings up and down. The optical temperature sensor in the combined respiration vial can be used for true temperature compensation of the integrated oxygen sensor for high precision measurements.
Application Examples. True temperature-compensated respiration rate measurements of bacteria or cell cultures, oxygen production/consumption rates of microalgae, general metabolic rate measurements, respiration rate measurements of eggs, larvae or small fish etc.
- Small-scale respirometry and metabolic rate measurements of e.g. cell cultures, eggs, larvae, small crustaceans, small fish, water-, plant-, algal-samples etc.
- Simultaneous oxygen measurements in a liquid phase and a gaseous headspace within the same vial (using e.g. 2 adapter rings, optical fibers, 2 oxygen channels FSO2-2)
- Oxygen monitoring in enclosed gas samples
- Oxygen monitoring in enclosed aqueous samples
- Measurements of oxygen evolution rates/net photosynthesis rates in e.g. enclosed photosynthetic biofilms, micro-algae
