Featured Equipment

Wireless Optical Dissolved Oxygen Sensor

This sensor is perfect for the live or long-term monitoring of dissolved oxygen concentration, saturation, atmospheric pressure, and water temperature in both the lab and field.

Photosynthesis Tank

Photosynthesis Tank

Designed to work with PASCO sensors, the Photosynthesis Tank is an ideal apparatus for studying photosynthesis and respiration in aquatic life.

Many lab activities can be conducted with our Wireless, PASPORT, or even ScienceWorkshop sensors and equipment. For assistance with substituting compatible instruments, contact PASCO Technical Support. We're here to help.
