Ocean Insight optical oxygen sensors use light to probe the interaction between a sample and one of our proprietary sensing materials in order to quantify a chemical property of the sample. Our oxygen sensors have been used to monitor biological samples, headspace gases, industrial slurries, cosmetics, foods, and liquids in natural environments.
Recent enhancements to our line of optical oxygen sensors include a more convenient probe option for process environments; Lab Services testing options for chemical compatibility and custom configurations; and redesigned NeoFox Viewer sensor software. The latter has been beefed up with faster response times, a friendlier graphical interface, and additional functions such as data logging capability and LED duty cycle control.
A popular option for oxygen measurements is the NeoFox-Kit-Probe. It comprises several components in one convenient kit:
- NeoFox-GT phase fluorometer
- FOSPOR-R general-purpose probe
- BIFBORO-1000-2 1000 µm bifurcated fiber assembly w/21-02 splice bushing
- NeoFox-TP thermistor for temperature compensation in convenient, single assembly
- NeoFox-Viewer operating software
Depending on the oxygen measurement level, the NEOFOX-KIT-PROBE has accuracy of 0.1% to 0.5% oxygen and resolution from 0.005% to 0.20% oxygen.
Indicator material is easily applied to probes, patches, cuvettes, and other media
Fiber optic sensors are more robust and require less maintenance than most electrodes
Sensors do not consume or alter the chemical composition of the sample
Sensors are less susceptible to environmental changes, moisture, and interfering chemicals
- Available as a modular configuration (NEOFOX-GT plus sensor probe), as a probe-based kit (NEOFOX-KIT-PROBE), or as a patch-based kit (NEOFOX-KIT-PATCH)
- Consider our Lab Services testing capabilities to determine chemical compatibility or prove feasibility of custom sensing configurations
