Featured Equipment

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.

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.
