REDOSTAT is the key to experimental success
Master variables, such as pH, temperature and redox potential, should be controlled during an experiment to ensure definitive results. Unfortunately, the redox potential is seldom controlled, leading to inaccurate experimentation.

Now, at last, a solution is available!

Because the redox potential is not controlled in many experiments, the concentrations of the redox couple change dramatically during the course of the experiment, and the extent of this change differs from experiment to experiment. These factors often make it difficult for the researcher to interpret the results of experiments. The REDOSTAT alleviates the problems associated with changes in redox potential during an experiment.
The REDOSTAT is a turnkey apparatus enabling the control of all the master variables, such as redox potential, in both chemical and biological experiments. Such controlled experimentation results in more precise data that can be interpreted with more certainty. Get full value out of the experiments that you perform! The REDOSTAT is a versatile apparatus that can be configured for a large variety of experiments. The high precision of the measurements and the control system that removes the uncertainty from one of the key master variables, means that you can perform experiments that are repeatable – leading to conclusions that are reliable.
