The new, fully automated oxygen calibration system that is currently available on the Whitley H135 HEPA Hypoxystation could really make a difference. This system allows you to calibrate your workstation efficiently and easily and so improve the accuracy of experimental data.
The Whitley Automated Calibration System (patent pending) is very user friendly – all you have to do is touch a couple of icons on the colour touchscreen and the routine activates. No further user intervention is required. It takes just eight minutes to complete and readings are taken at two points – 0% oxygen and 20.9% oxygen levels. You don’t have to enter the chamber at all.
The oxygen sensor is not removed for calibration so the sensor remains within a stable environment and is not subjected to any changes in humidity and temperature when a calibration routine is conducted. Leaving the sensor in place prevents the risk of condensation forming on the component, which could affect its sensitivity, accuracy and life.
You can set the system to prompt you when the next calibration is due (from 7 – 21 days). Don Whitley Scientific recommends that calibration is conducted every two weeks. Full training, confirming how easy the routine is to perform, is provided during the workstation installation procedure. Click on the image below for a video demonstration.
