Featured Equipment

Agricultural Science Starter Bundle

This Agricultural Science Starter Bundle contains the sensors required to perform several experiments in the Agricultural Science Manual.

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.

Wireless Oxygen Gas Sensor

The Wireless Oxygen Gas Sensor measures gaseous O₂ concentration as well as humidity and air temperature for a range of biology, environmental science, and physiology activities.

Colorimeter and Turbidity

Wireless Colorimeter & Turbidity Sensor

This sensor can function as a turbidimeter or colorimeter and is capable of measuring absorbance and transmittance at six different wavelengths.

Weather Sensor with GPS

Wireless Weather Sensor with GPS

This sensor is packed with GPS and 19 different measurements that can be monitored live or collected over the long term.

CO2 Sensor

Wireless CO₂ Sensor

The Wireless CO₂ Sensor measures Carbon Dioxide gas levels and wirelessly streams data to your computers, tablets, and smartphones.

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.

EcoZone

EcoZone System

3 interconnectable polycarbonate chambers for building your own ecosystems. Designed to easily integrate sensors for quantitative environmental measurements.

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.
