From R&D and quality control to diagnostic / medical and commercial testing, laboratory applications vary widely in their purpose. In the laboratory, oxidation-reduction potential (ORP or REDOX) measurements are an invaluable tool to understand the condition of the targeted oxidation-reduction reaction.
Depending on the purpose of the laboratory procedure, the analyst can use the ORP measurement to find the best way to influence the reaction to meet the desired result. For example, ORP is a part of a titration procedure to quantify an endpoint or measure the concentration of a targeted substance.
Laboratory sensors involve specialized form factors like miniaturization, flow cell apparatus, custom reference electrolytes, or automation. Additionally, reference system designs like refillable and free-flowing junctions are optimal for lab applications.
