There's more than one way to measure pH

What's wrong with some of the methods of measuring pH? At ZP we recently discovered the answer to this question whilst working on a novel application, and the answer is that potentiometric measurements using oxide based sensors can take some time to reach equilibrium, When we say 'some time' we specifically mean 200 seconds, which may not sound like a lot, but if you want or need to know the pH of a sample within 30 seconds then 200 seconds is too long.


At ZP we have a different attitude to problems, as we seem them as opportunities and so when faced with a challenge of needing a fast to respond pH sensor, we changed the mode of operation and the chemistry of detection; what we created was a ZP voltammetric pH sensor which was able to measure pH within 30 seconds. 2019
