Featured Equipment

AirLink Interface

This economical interface makes PASPORT sensors cross-platform compatible.

Ethanol Sensor

PASPORT Ethanol Sensor

The PASPORT Ethanol Sensor measures the concentration of ethanol in a gas and or liquid. It is well-suited for both continuous recording and discrete measurements. For use with PASPORT Interfaces.

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.
