  • Measure pH in the laminar flow

    The life science is dealing with organisms – such as microorganisms, plants, and animals. This means, germ free or sterile conditions are most important. To achieve this, the work needs to be performed in closed systems (fermentation) or under laminar flow hoods if manipulations are needed. Working material used in the flow bench needs either be sterile or can be disinfected by ethanol. ...
