Calcium ion selective electrodes are used to measure that parameter in an aqueuous solution. In addition, the electrode combined with our ion meters is an easy, quick method used to check the amount of calcium present in water and related samples.
Above all, our calcium ISE is specifically designed to measure 0.5 ppm to saturated (5×10-6 M to Saturated) concentrations of Ca+2.
Measure calcium in a wide range of aqueous solutions. In conclusion, our half cell ion selective electrode is based on the latest nanotechnology innovative research. All the same, it must work along with a reference electrode.

Where is Calcium measurement required so far?
Calcium sensors are used for measuring calcium in water. The concentration of calcium in water is also known as water hardness. Hard water contributes to scaling in boilers and industrial equipment. Measuring calcium in water is important in industrial settings in order to prevent costly breakdowns that can be caused by limescale.
Water hardness also affects fish because it influences osmoregulation, which is their constant internal regulation of body fluid concentration. High levels of calcium in water can trigger diseases in fish. Calcium sensors can be used in fish farming to ensure the levels are maintained at an optimum place and can also be used for measuring calcium in water that is designed for drinking.
Also, calcium is also one of the most important minerals in the blood. Total blood calcium testing is important to measure the total amount of calcium in the blood.
Calcium is also essential for the nerves, heart and muscles to function properly.
