The waterproof, battery-operated Thermo Orion Star A223 portable RDO/DO meter stands up to the most demanding field applications and delivers over 800 hours of continuous operation. The informative, backlit display shows DO concentration, DO percent saturation and temperature readings along with time, date, sample ID, user ID and calibration information. The meter accepts both Orion polarographic probes and RDO optical probes for increased accuracy and versatility. For advanced users, features such as stability and averaging choices provide additional options.

Thermo Orion Star A220 series benchtop meters provide a large storage capacity for time-stamped data points, which can be conveniently uploaded to a PC through the meter's USB and RS-232 ports. Complimentary data analysis software allows users to quickly view and manipulate data. Accuracy can be ensured through a variety of pressure compensation options and calibration methods.

Questions & Answers
Which Thermo Star DO meter has better reading ranges?

All three meters (A213, A323. and A223) have the same dissolved oxygen range using either an RDO optical dissolved oxygen probe or a polarographic dissolved oxygen probe.

Will my meter read dissolved oxygen in percent saturation?

The Star A223 will display dissolved oxygen in percent air saturation or concentration.

Does the kit come with an optical probe or a polarographic probe?

The Thermo Orion Star kit (STARA2235) comes with an optical DO probe.

Choosing The Right Thermo Portable For Your Project

With so many options in Thermo Scientific’s Orion Star A line, it can be difficult to narrow down which meter will best fulfill a project’s needs. One easy way to rule out some meters is by considering application type. For projects that rely largely on collecting samples in the field, a portable meter is clearly the way to go. But there’s still a handful of meters to choose from. To simplify making the right choice, we spoke with Ricki Hartwell, the global product manager for Thermo Scientific’s Orion Laboratory and Field Instruments. She recently shared her tips on choosing the right Thermo benchtop. Let’s take a look at her recommendations for selecting the right portable meter.

Protecting Endangered Species: Conducting Mussel Surveys

*This is part two of a two-part story on endangered mussels. To read part one, click here * With over 300 endangered mussel species in the United States, environmental agencies like EnviroScience rise to the challenge of protecting these vital species. When new construction sites are determined, the Endangered Species Act steps in to protect any endangered wildlife within the impacted area. Unfortunately, the protocols surrounding these protections can be complex and difficult to understand, making the work of scientists like Greg Zimmerman, Corporate Vice President for EnviroScience and an endangered mussel surveyor, vital to protecting biodiversity.

Protecting Endangered Species: Why Freshwater Mussels Matter

*This is part one of a two-part story on endangered mussels. To read part two, click here * Though few people pay any mind to the occasional “clam” shell spotted along a river bank or lake, these small but mighty creatures are deeply important to water systems across the United States, and many of them are federally and state endangered. Greg Zimmerman of EnviroScience, Inc.  shares, “We have about 300 species of mussels in the U.S., compared to other regions of the world like Europe that have under 20 species.” Zimmerman spent his life around water and always knew he wanted to return to help protect aquatic ecosystems. “I’ve always had a love of water, since I was 2. I grew up on an island in Buckeye Lake in Ohio.
