Ion meter

A pH meter is a laboratory instrument for scientific use, which measures the activity of the hydrogen ion in aqueous solutions, indicating its degree of acidity or alkalinity expressed as pH, is used in laboratories and in multiple other fields or areas; a pH measurement can be obtained using pH indicators or tapes, or meters such as pH meters, portable meters or pH electrodes.

This pH meter instrument makes a measurement of the pH by a potentiometric method, based on the fact that between two solutions with different H + a potential difference is established, which determines when the two solutions come into contact a flow of electric current occurs, in practice the pH measurement is relative, since the pH of a sample is compared with that of a known pH standard solution.

Types of Laboratory Ion Meter a Laboratory May Need


As mentioned above the measurement of the ion concentration or the measurements of specific ions through an ion meter can be performed on a wide variety of samples such as: water, food, beverages, pharmaceuticals and also samples of biological origin.

An ion meter works by selective ion electrodes (ISEs) which are measuring devices with a sensitive membrane capable of measuring ion activity. These devices measure the concentration of ion determined in a solution using a sensor electrode and a reference electrode. They work through ion exchange, where the difference in potential that is generated when the electrode comes in contact with the ion being studied is measured. The specific ion activity is transformed into electrical potential at the moment it comes into contact with the active membrane of the selective ion electrode.

Ion meter in operation

An ion meter is an electrochemical analytical device that is used to measure ion concentration in a solution. It is used with several ion electrodes (ISE).

An ion is an atom or a group of atoms with electric charge. This charged particle can be positive or negative. A cation is an ion with positive charge and an anion is one with a negative charge (atom or molecule). The ions are formed when a neutral (electrically neutral) atom loses or gains electrons. The anions have more electrons than protons and cations have a higher proton number.

Measuring the concentration of ions or measurements of specific ions through an ion meter can be performed in a wide variety of samples such as water, food, beverages, pharmaceutical products and samples of biological origin.
