The LAQUA Twin range of Pocket Meters are quick, accurate and designed for very small sample volumes.
Full product descriptions and specifications can be found here
There are three very easy steps to operate them:
Calibrate after cleaning the sensor with pure water
Testing the sample
Cleaning the sensor ready for next use.
Auto Buffer / Standard Recognition:
Automatically calibrates pH buffers and standards
Pre-programmed into the software (Refer to specs.)
Avoid errors during calibration
Auto Stable / Auto Hold Measurement:
Auto Stable Display live reading (default setting)
Auto Hold Lock stable reading;
Applicable to EC meters
Switches to appropriate measurement range and unit
Enter the dilution factor 0.01 9.90 (default value 1.00) into the meter to correct the sample reading
Avoid manual computation
Applicable to diluted samples and ion meter
Changeable Low & High New! Calibration Values:
Change default standard solution values to match the concentration(s) of user-prepared standard solution(s)
Default values: 150 & 2000 ppm
Applicable to ion meters
Temperature Calibration New!:
Applicable to models with temperature display
Adjust the measured temperature to a reference value (e.g., calibrated thermometer)
Automatically correct the reading based on measured temperature
All sensors have built-in temperature element and meters
Low Battery Indicator:
Batterywarning appears when the CR2032 batteries need replacement

Which pH meter/electrode do I need?...
Making sure you have the right electrode and meter for your application can be confusing, not to mention correct maintenance and what to do if you are having issues. You can find links to our support guides below to help you through the process.
If you are after an electrode selector guide for some of our most popular electrodes and what applications they are recommended for you can find that below.
pH, put simply is a measure of how acidic or basic a solution is. It is a measure of H+ions present.
pH can be measured in a number of ways including test strips, indicator solution or with a pH meter and electrode. If you want to read more about the pH and the pros and cons of these methods, you can check out our introduction guide here.
How to take a pH reading and care for your electrode
pH electrodes require the correct storage and regular calibration.
If you have a pH meter or are looking to purchase and need to find out more about the care and maintenance process then you can read our guide here. We also include a troubleshoot sections with the most reported issues and possible solutions.
Selecting the right electrode and meter for your application
So you have decided you need to purchase a pH meter with electrode, but with such a wide selection out there, how do you know which is right for you?
You can read our guide on the differences between electrodes and what applications different features are good for. We also have an electrode selection guide for some of our most popular electrodes.
If you require any further assistance, or extra information you can request that here and one of our trained technical specialists will be in contact. Please provide as much detail as possible so that we can get back to you with the right information.
Have you considered your servicing requirements? Much like a car, scientific instruments may need a bit of care to keep them working reliably and at their most accurate.
The Camlab Service Department have over 60 years experience in scientific instrumentation. We have a number of highly qualified internal and field-based service engineers able to perform a variety of jobs including preventative maintenance servicing and calibration.
Camlab can offer yearly service contracts which include two main types of preventative maintenance/calibration services – the back to base service and an engineer visit to your site. These options are can be offered with differing turn around times depending on the instrument type and your requirements along with loan instruments if available.
A typical preventative maintenance service includes the following:
Inspection and testing of the unit
Dismantling, cleaning and inspection of the key parts
Correction of minor defects including adjustments if necessary
Reassembly and testing
Take post adjustment / cleaning readings
Supply of calibration certificate
Return of the item to you (back to base services)
