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.

CastAway Doubts about Conductivity, Depth and Temperature Monitoring

The Sontek CastAway-CTD is a castable device that measures conductivity, temperature and depth. The instrument has been used in the field for over a decade by oceanographers, limnologists, divers, fishers and educators. There have been few changes since the first iteration in 2010, showing that the instrument is durable and accurate without requiring new models.   The CastAway is the first conductivity, temperature and depth (CTD) instrument of its kind. While other CTDs are large and cumbersome to deploy, with cages and isolated sensors, the CastAway is a small, lightweight and easy-to-use instrument. Typical CTDs utilize pumps to ensure water flows over the sensors during deployment.

Dimethyl Sulfide: A Key to Marine Sulfur Biogeochemistry

Christopher Spiese is assistant dean at the Getty College of Arts & Sciences, acting director of the school of social sciences and human interaction, and associate professor of chemistry at Ohio Northern University. He is also a marine sulfur enthusiast. Marine sulfur biogeochemistry, which involves the cycling of sulfur through aquatic biological and geological systems, is essential for the functioning of marine life. However, the exact chemistry involved is not entirely known, piquing the interest of researchers like Spiese. “I went into marine sulfur biogeochemistry during my graduate work. I completed a doctoral environmental chemistry program at SUNY College of Environmental Science and Forestry (SUNY-ESF) under David Kieber.
