Ion selective electrode for Nitrate
Solid-state ion selective electrode have the advantages of being robust and being miniaturized.
NT Sensors Nitrate ion selective electrode is composed by a mini nitrate ion selective electrode and a single ion probe which acts as ISE holder. The mini nitrate ISE can be exchanged for a new Nitrate sensor tip or any other sensor tip available from our catalogue.
The sensitivity and selectivity of NT Sensors solid-state ISEs is the same as for other Ion-Selective Electrodes.
The life expectance of Nitrate ISE is of 6 months, even they are stored on a shelf or installed in a probe. Different sensors differ in several months in the same conditions.
It is recommended for use with any Ion or mV meter and a reference electrode.
Nitrate ions are charged particles of nitrogen and oxygen atoms that are highly reactive in nature and form a number of useful compounds. In soils, nitrates are important plant nutrients which help to promote plant growth. Nitrates also act as electron acceptors during the process of respiration, allowing fats and proteins to be broken down into usable energy for the cell. Nitrate ions can be found in fertilizers, fertilized soil, sewage, animal wastes, runoff from agricultural areas and polluted rivers or streams.
