Q. Do I need to use a special meter working with detectION ISEs?
A. No. Any pH meter with mV scale or Ion Meter (preferably) is compatible with any detectION probe.
Q. What is the difference between Combination and Mono ISEs?
A. Mono ISE requires separate Reference Electrodes while Combination probe has this one already built-in.
Q. I measure X-Ion following EPA (ASTM, FDA or so) method. Can I use detectION Electrode?
A. Yes, you can.
Q. The method I use to measure X-Ion, requires a certain buffer. Can I skip the buffer by using detectION electrodes?
No, you cant. The method itself has to be the same.
Q. Do I still need to calibrate these ISE with a Standard Solution?
A. Yes, you do, since thats the nature of the measurement comparison sample to the standard.
Q. Do you sell ISE storage bottles and solutions?
A. No, because you dont need any. Just store detectION probes dry.
Q. I need to measure X-Ion. My Orion (etc.) ISE is not sensitive enough
(The concentration is below lower limit). Will detectION probe be better?
Unfortunately, no. Concentration range is the same.
Q. I need to measure X-Ion in the presence of Y-Ion, which is interfering ion for X ion determination, according to the specs. Will detectION probe change the situation?
A. No, it will not.
Q. I have everything set up for my existing ISEs (meter, holder, standards, buffers, etc.) Can I use all this stuff with detectION or Ill need to purchase everything all over again?
A. No, you dont need anything special and can use what ever was used for.
Q. I think,there is something wrong with my Electrode. Is there any criteria to find out if it works properly?
A. Yes, it is. Electrodes potential (millivolt reading) has to be changed for about (56 +/- 6) mV for monovalent and about (27+/- 6) mV for divalent ion with 10 fold concentration change.
