The PH850-SS from Apera Instruments is a handy and easy-to-use meter for the determination of pH, ORP (electrode sold separately e.g. 301Pt-C) and temperature. It is especially suitable for direct pH measurement of food samples (meat, cheese, dairy products, fruit, etc.) and other semi-solids (e.g. soil). The included LabSen® 753 pH electrode has a pointed & stable glass membrane and a solid polymer electrolyte, so it can easily penetrate food without causing damage or clogging the diaphragm. It is encased in a food-grade titanium alloy, which is easy to clean and provides additional stability. The electrode has an integrated temperature sensor, which enables automatic temperature compensation (ATC). The PH850-SS is protected by a silicone cover and is waterproof and dustproof (IP57), making it particularly well suited for field use, even in harsh environments.

The meter is RoHS and EC certified and has a 3 year warranty (6 months on the electrode).
The LabSen® 753 from Apera Instruments is a pH insertion electrode with integrated temperature sensor and is manufactured using proprietary Swiss sensor technology and materials. It can easily penetrate solid or semi-solid samples thanks to its tip and is particularly suitable for pH measurement of foods such as cheese, flour products, meat, fruits, etc.
LabSen S-Type Pointed Glass Diaphragm – Thanks to the low-resistance and rugged pointed glass diaphragm, the electrode delivers fully stabilized readings in 15 to 30 seconds, yet is up to 10 times more robust than conventional products, significantly reducing the likelihood of the electrode breaking during impact or when penetrating samples.
Polymer electrolyte with hole diaphragm structure – Allows direct contact with test samples without clogging the diaphragm structure. The electrolyte does not need to be refilled.
Long-life reference system – The LabSen 753 pH electrode uses a long-life reference system consisting of a glass tube, AgCl and a reference silver wire. The top of the slim glass tube is filled with cotton, which prevents the reaction between AgCl and electrolyte when the temperature changes. It improves the stability of the reference electrode and extends the life of the electrode.
