Details

The Hach Low Ionic Strength Sample Chamber Kit prevents sample contamination by
atmospheric carbon dioxide and oxygen. When a sample absorbs carbon dioxide from the
atmosphere, carbonic acid forms. Carbonic acid decreases the sample pH and increases
conductivity, causing inaccurate readings. Samples can also absorb oxygen from the atmosphere. This disrupts dissolved oxygen measurements.

This kit contains a sample chamber with a cap suitable for:
Measuring a grab sample while reducing the samples exposure to the atmosphere
Measuring a flow or plug-flow sample with no exposure to the atmosphere.

The kit contains two lids that will accommodate Hach Platinum pH, Hach Dissolved Oxygen
and Hach Conductivity electrodes. Use the lids with the 0.55 in. diameter electrode port for the
conductivity electrode and the lids with the 0.45 in. diameter electrode port for the pH and
dissolved oxygen electrodes. The kit also contains 6 ft. of tubing that users can cut into lengths
that meet their needs.
What's Included:
  • (1) Sample chamber
  • (2) Lids
  • (2) Stoppers
  • Tubing, 6 ft
  • Instruction sheet

Seeking an Elegant, Affordable Solution to Contamination

Dr. Charley Liberko of Cornell College's Department of Chemistry has an idea he's working to bring to fruition. “Imagine a remote village in an underdeveloped country whose only source of water is a stream contaminated with toxic levels of metal ions such as cadmium and nickel,” states Dr. Liberko. “The villagers take locally available woody plant material, soak it in potash, and heat it up for several days until the wood partially decomposes. They then filter their water through this material to remove the metal ions. When they are done with it, they put the material in a clay pot and heat it up even hotter until the organic matter decomposes completely, leaving the metal ion salts as a residue, safely in the clay pot.

New Fish Lab Offers Unique Opportunities

Sometimes scientists have to make an extraordinary effort to study the questions that concern them. In fact, they may even need to design and build labs to their specifications. This was the case with the University of Nebraska, Lincoln's (UNL’s) Fish Conservation Behavior and Physiology Lab , which serves as a locus for research on water management best practices based on fish physiology—work conducted by up and coming scientists as well as more established researchers. Dr. Jamilynn Poletto spoke to EM about how the lab was built and the work that is happening there. Building a customized solution “My problem was that in the lab we get city water from Lincoln, and any water from any city in the country has chlorine and chloramine in it,” explains Dr.

From Acid Rain to Cyanobacteria, Cary Institute of Ecosystem Studies is a Leader in Environmental Monitoring

Cary Institute of Ecosystem Studies , an independent environmental research organization in Millbrook, NY, is a leader in environmental monitoring – particularly long-term monitoring that spans decades. Steve Hamilton is a freshwater ecologist at Cary Institute and professor at Kellogg Biological Station , a member of the Organization of Biological Field Stations ( OBFS ), at Michigan State University. Hamilton explains, “Environmental monitoring is how ecologists keep a finger on the planet’s rapidly-shifting pulse. By tracking ecological indicators over long timescales, we can identify patterns and better understand how ecosystems are changing. This understanding will guide us as we work to adapt to and mitigate environmental degradation.
