Questions & Answers
How is my Star A213 Meter powered?

The Star A213 Meter has an AC adapter (included) but can also be powered with 4 AA batteries. The battery life is about 800 hours.

Can my Star A213 meter get wet?

The Star A213 meter is splash proof with an IP54 rating.

Does this meter measure temperature?

Yes, the temperature can be measured by a DO probe or manually input for calculations.

What does "RDO" mean?

RDO stands for Rugged Dissolved Oxygen. The optional RDO probe uses luminescent technology instead of polarographic to measure dissolved oxygen.

Choosing The Right Thermo Benchtop For Your Project

Thermo Scientific’s Orion Star A line is full of options for completing projects from environmental monitoring to quality control and beyond. These include benchtops like the Orion Versa Star and portables like the Orion Star A329 . Making the right selection is important for ensuring project success, but sometimes choosing a meter can be difficult. To make things a little easier, we talked with Ricki Hartwell, the global product manager for Thermo Scientific’s Orion Laboratory and Field Instruments. She gave some tips to help customers find the best meter to meet their needs. Let’s take a look at her recommendations for benchtops.

Sewage an Unseen and Ignored Threat to Coral Reefs and Human Health

It’s an open, dirty secret that the ocean is used as the ultimate sewage solution. Each year trillions of gallons of untreated waste are sent to the ocean due to a widespread lack of sanitation technology or infrastructure that needs updating as cities and populations grow. As the impact of untreated sewage on the ocean becomes clearer, attention to the problem and strategies for dealing with it have not kept up. “This is a massive problem and it’s been largely ignored,” said Stephanie Wear, senior scientist and strategy advisor for The Nature Conservancy. Wear has turned her attention to raising the alarm about the effects of sewage on coral reefs, which often loses airtime to other pressing issues like climate change and overfishing.

Lake Superior Algal Blooms Surprise, Highlight Need for More Monitoring

In 2012, for maybe the first time, Lake Superior got scummy. Visitors to the Apostle Islands National Lakeshore reported algae washing up on shore around the park.  It was a marked shift for the park, made up of a portion of the Lake Superior lakeshore and nearby islands. The water surrounding the park is cold, clear and typically low in nutrients: a combination unlikely to result in algal blooms. But, in 2012 and again in 2018 after violent storms, major algal blooms—ones observed over multiple days—washed ashore and clogged the beaches with unsightly, scummy algae. Not the usual suspects The algal blooms of Lake Superior are not the algal blooms of warmer, more nutrient-rich lakes like Lake Erie.
