Ethanol Vapor Sensor

Description

Go Direct Ethanol Vapor measures the concentration of ethanol in the air above an aqueous sample. This sensor can be used in a wide variety of experiments in biological, agricultural, food, and environmental studies.

Go Direct Ethanol Vapor can be used in a variety of experiments:

  • Determine the rate of ethanol production during fermentation.
  • Measure the discrete amount of ethanol in a given sample.
  • Investigate which sugars yeast can ferment.
  • Identify specific organisms that can utilize ethanol fermentation as a metabolic pathway.

Rechargeable Battery—Ready When You Are

The robust rechargeable battery offers long battery life and provides always-ready operation when using the sensor wirelessly. Monitor battery life directly from our free Graphical Analysis 4 app or LabQuest 2 App. Should the battery run low, simply connect the sensor to the charging cable and keep on collecting—no interruptions or inconvenience to you or your students.

Wired or Wireless—The Flexibility to Choose

Our Go Direct sensors connect directly to your mobile device, Chromebook, or computer using our free Graphical Analysis 4 app—no additional equipment or software purchases are necessary. Go Direct sensors can be used wired via USB or wirelessly via Bluetooth® wireless technology, allowing you to choose the solution best for your classroom or laboratory.
