The Extech VPC300 is a unique particle counter with built-in camera for capturing videos and photos that are stored in the internal memory or a microSD card.
The Extech VPC300 features a color TFT LCD display, a 74MB internal data storage bank, a micro-SD memory card slot for capturing images and videos for viewing on a PC, and a built-in 320x240 pixel camera for capturing stills/video of test locations. It offers quick and accurate readings for particle count, air temperature, most surface temperatures, and relative humidity. Additionally, it offers a dew point and wet bulb temperature calculation geared for energy efficiency and environmental protection applications. The included PC software enables report generations based on recorded data, images, and videos.
The convenient keystroke menu structure allows for measurements, setup, and other programming. Images can be saved to a PC in JPEG format, and videos in 3GP format. The meter stores up to 5000 records with date and time stamp, as well as 20 minutes of video. A micro-SD memory card slot hosts 8GB maximum memory cards for additional storage space. Selectable sample time, count data, and programmable delay can all be adjusted and viewed using the keypad for navigation. A tripod mount is included for continuous recording. The meter is NIST calibrated for complete assurance.

Teeming communities of life inhabit the bottoms of nearly all waterways everywhere. Hidden from most observers, whether by lack of access or lack of awareness, these benthic macroinvertebrates form much of the foundation of any aquatic food web and ecosystem. However, these tiny denizens of the nation's waterways are also a mostly captive audience when it comes to poor water quality; they spend most of their lives in water, and unlike fish, cannot flee pollution or disruption. For this reason, scientists see benthic macroinvertebrates as indicators, nature's water quality detectives.Read More
Researchers today are turning to the community more often in their work to make use of citizen scientists, dedicated volunteers in the community who want to get involved in scientific research. Two recent examples from Michigan, the Oakland County Healthy Lake Initiative and a study concerning botulism deaths of waterfowl on Lake Michigan, prove how effective these collaborations can be. The Oakland County Lake monitoring project Dr. Paul Steen, a watershed ecologist with the Huron River Watershed Council , administers the Oakland County Healthy Lake Initiative as program manager of the Michigan Clean Water Corps (MiCorps) .Read More
Both the concept of the food web and the ecosystem are founded on the idea that all species inhabiting a region rely upon each other for survival. Every individual species lives an intimately interconnected existence. An insult to one species typically affects at least those species that rely upon it—and sometimes affects many, many other species in an attenuated ripple outward. Food webs in particular are masses of connected food chains. Each chain represents the direct transfer of energy from one species to another. The tiny autotrophs that harvest energy from things like carbon dioxide and minerals require sunlight energy to function, and these species make up the foundation of the food web.Read More
