Need to buy pH electrode for my ABL 5
I think that the distribuitor in my country is very expensive, he wants almost $4000 (dolars) for one pH electrode. Is it OK? Can I find another provider?
Thanks for the answer to: firstname.lastname@example.org

I have made some maintenance for ABL5 lately (replacing the membranes and the rinse solution and re-adjust the gas flow) and everything went fine and instrument was ok. After 3 days of shutting down (after maintenance), all parameters are almost ok except for PCO2 reading sensitivity, it reads 537. I don't know the cause of this very high sensitivity reading?!!!
The other thing I did not liked in ABL5 is the long time taking in calibration to set normal values after shut down. I know it should be running continuously but due to lack of fund forced me to shut down the instrument to save solutions. They are really very expensive and we are just non-profit educational/research institute.Reply
