Record accurate and reliable dissolved oxygen and temperature measurements with the Thermo Scientific™ Orion™ Star A213 Dissolved Oxygen and RDO Benchtop Meter, ideal for a wide range of applications and advanced dissolved oxygen analysis in the lab. Use an RDO optical or polarographic DO probe for ultimate flexibility in sensors. Calibrate using water-saturated air, air-saturated water, custom value using Winkler titration or zero point options. Log up to 2000 data point sets with time / date stamp and easily transfer calibration and data logs via USB or RS232 to a printer or computer.

Thermo Scientific Orion Star A213 dissolved oxygen benchtop meters are easy to use, dependable laboratory meters with advanced features and functions. Selectable read modes and stability indicator give you flexibility and control over your testing. All critical data is shown with your measurements including temperature, date and time, read type, measurement stability and active calibration information. Onscreen calibration and setup instructions can be displayed in several local languages with new languages added through software updates.
Navigation is fast and simple due to the comprehensive keypad with menu-specific function keys, dual purpose scroll/shortcut keys, plus power, measure, log view and stirrer keys that ensure easy operation. All setup menus are in one location with direct access using a single shortcut key so you can quickly access, evaluate and change measurement and instrument settings.

  • Measure dissolved oxygen in percent saturation or mg/L with temperature using Orion RDO optical DO probes or Orion polarographic DO probes
  • Calibrate dissolved oxygen using water-saturated air, air-saturated water, custom value (Winkler titration) and zero point options
  • Automatically compensate dissolved oxygen readings using ATC temperature, manual salinity input and built-in barometer for barometric pressure readings
  • Informative, easy-to-read backlit graphic display with clear onscreen instructions simplifies operation
