The Materials Testing Machine measures force with a 7100 N load cell and displacement with an optical encoder. It runs on PASCO Capstone software which has a built-in compliance calibration wizard and has all the tools to record and display stress vs. strain, apply linear fits to find Young’s Modulus, and to record and play back webcam movies of the breaking samples, synced to the data.

Now PASCO offers wireless spectrometry! The Bluetooth and USB connectivity enable use with your iPads, tablets, and computers, which makes this a powerful and intuitive tool for your spectroscopy needs. With this one apparatus you can measure intensity, absorbance, transmittance, and fluorescence. Read more.
PASCO’s new Optical Dissolved Oxygen Sensor makes it easier than ever before to measure dissolved oxygen in the field or in a lab environment. The luminescent technology has several advantages over a galvanic dissolved oxygen sensor including:
- A There is no warm-up time.
- No calibration is required
- It is low maintenance (no filling solution and electrode polishing).
- There is a built-in temperature and pressure compensation
- No flow dependency
- Optional Salinity Compensation Read more.
