Dissolved Gases

Dissolved Gases

Dissolved gas measurements can be used in many gas exchange studies including measuring amount of dissolved nitrogen in blood, amount of dissolved oxygen and carbon dioxide in seawater or other aqueous physiological solutions.

Signal Overview

Gases can dissolve in another solute including other gases or liquids, although often synonymous with a gas-liquid mixture, where the dissolved amount and rate depends on its subjected pressure, temperature, and the interaction between the molecules of both substances.

Dissolved gas measurements can be used in a wide variety of applications including monitoring a patient health, observing the respiration of fishes, and studying photosynthesis of marine plants. Life science studies often measure the amount of dissolved oxygen, carbon dioxide and nitrogen in aqueous solutions. Additionally, there are many methods to detect and record the amount of dissolved gases, including conventional membrane-covered electrochemical sensors, optical sensors and galvanic sensors.

Enabling Discovery

LabChart

All your Dissolved Gases analysis in one place

LabChart software is designed specifically for life science data and provides up to 32 channels for data display and analysis options that are powerful and easy to use. With auto-recognition of ADI and LabChart Compatible hardware, multi-window views, one touch recording, simultaneous recording from multiple devices, specialized preconfigured settings, easy sharing options and an interface that can be customized to show only the features you want to use.

Automating the detection of gas thresholds

Manually detecting when the dissolved gas signal reaches a certain threshold can be tedious or inaccurate due to variability in reaction times.

To help with this, LabChart offers graphical aids like Guide Lines and the DVM mini window, as well as the Event Manager Add-On to automate this type of detection. Event Manager continuously monitors the level of the signal in real-time and can automatically start a series of actions when a set threshold is reached. This includes either prompting the user or running a pre-programmed event script.
