Algae cultures are sensitive to pH (acid/alkaline) and will grow within certain pH ranges. We recommend that you have a pH meter handy for confirming pH.
This economical pH meter is easy-to-use for quick and reliable pH measurements.
Includes: meter complete with protective cap, calibration screwdriver, batteries, instructions, and powdered calibration standards.
|Range:||0.0 - 14.0 pH|
|Accuracy:||± 0.1 pH|
1 Point (7.0 pH)
|Probe:||Glass (Not replacable)|
|Environment:||32° - 122°F / 0° - 50°C; max RH 95%|
|Battery Life:||700 hours of use|

Important: Like all economy pH testers, our basic meter uses a glass electrode sensor, which is unprotected and susceptible to breakage. This sensor must be handled with extreme care and stored in a buffer solution. If the sensor is broken it cannot be replaced. If the sensor is allowed to dry out it may affect the accuracy of the meter readings.View full product details

Sold OutMy kids love to play in my lab, but they shouldn't! However, playing in the bathtub is an awesome idea. I have collected bathtub appropriate REAL LABORATORY EQUIPMENT and put it into a hanging mesh bag. It is made of polypropylene, so it can be thrown around and won't break easily- perfect for the tub. The package comes with a graduated cylinder (100ml), 3 beakers (250ml, 100ml, 50ml), a syringe (10ml), a funnel, a dripper, a mesh bag to drip dry the equipment, and a suction cup with a hook to hang the bag on the bathtub wall. I hope you all enjoy this as much as I do with my kids! Safety note: As with most bathtub activities, don't leave the kids unattended. There are small parts so it is intended for kids 6 and up.
