Featured Equipment

Agricultural Science Starter Bundle

The Agricultural Science Starter Bundle contains the sensors required to perform several experiments in the Agricultural Science Manu

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.

Conductivity Sensor

Wireless Conductivity Sensor

This waterproof sensor connects via Bluetooth® to measure both conductivity (ionic content in solution) and total dissolved solids.

pH Sensor

Wireless pH Sensor

Here’s the best tool for measuring pH since litmus paper. The Wireless pH Sensor connects via Bluetooth® to monitor the pH of solutions.

Temperature Sensor

Wireless Temperature Sensor

The Wireless Temperature Sensor is a general-purpose sensor found in many science labs. With a rugged, waterproof design, and long-lasting battery, students can spend more time collecting data and less time dealing with equipment.

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.
