LAQUAtwin series is a compact water quality tester. Using Ion Specific Electrode (ISE) technology, they are available for Conductivity, Calcium ion, Nitrate ion, Potassium ion, Sodium ion and pH measurement.
Using just a single drop of liquid, the LAQUAtwin proprietary flat sensors can quickly and accurately measure the values of the chemical parameters for artificial seawater or freshwater requirements.

LAQUAtwin conductivity meter (B-771) can be used for seawater salinity
measurement. Take conductivity measurement of seawater then convert into
salinity concentration referring to the PSS-78 (Practical Salinity Scale of 1978)
conversion table.

*Automatic salinity conversion of B-771 is not based on PSS-78

With LAQUAtwin, quick and easy check of Ca2+ (B-751), Na+ (B-722), K+ (B-731) and pH (B-712) are possible. Error of measurement data to artificial seawater with LAQUAtwin is within ± 20%.

※ Chloride ion is one of interfering ions for nitrate ion measurement. Chloride ion in seawater or artificial seawater around 20,000ppm will affect the nitrate ion measurement of less than 500 ppm.

Flat sensor technology and 60 years of sensor engineering realizes a reliable and direct measurement of a drop of the sample from 0.12mL. No need for a beaker to calibrate or measure. Just drop the standards and sample on the flat sensor, saves you time and minimize wasting your precious sample. Conductivity readings can be converted into salinity and TDS.
