pH is one of the most critical parameters determining the performance of culture media. The embryo´s internal pH which is known to regulate various metabolic and transport processes can only be maintained in an appropriate environment. Typically, checking media pH by conventional pH meters is too cumbersome and time-consuming to be done in short intervals.
pH Online™ has been designed to continuously monitor media pH from a reference dish placed in the incubator. Measurement is based on a non-contact, internally referenced dual luminophore technology which has huge advantages over conventional pH electrodes:
• Designed for long-term pH measurement
• No pH drift
• Disposable sensor dishes – no cleaning or sterilization pH OnlineTM is operated via the OCTAX Log & Guard™ controller and supports all Log & Guard™ features.
