Nitrate Ion Selective Electrode (ISE)

The Nitrate Ion Selective Electrode (ISE) can be used to measure the concentration of this parameter (NO3) in aqueous samples.

Measure nitrogen from nitrate ions. NT Sensors manufactures high quality, reliable and low volume nitrate selective electrodes based on the latest nanotechnology and innovative research.

Nitrate concentration, which can be increased by acidic rainfall, fertilizer runoff from fields, and plant or animal decay or waste, is an important parameter in nearly all water quality studies. However, water quality it’s not the only analyis you can use this ion for, it’s also important on:

  • Soil Extracts
  • Fertilizers
  • Soils and Plant Tissue (dissolved in an aqueuous sample)
  • Food such as meat, potatoes or spinach

The Nitrate ISE is a half reference electrode, all-solid state. Like all other PVC ISE membranes, the ISE has a limited lifespan. However, the replaceable module of ISE allows you to simply discard the used membrane module, and replace it with a new one. Check different nitrate modules and sensors available.
