The FC-10 oxygen analyzer is the instrument of choice for single channel oxygen measurements in applications such as respirometry, metallurgy and tissue culture. Oxygen resolution down to 1 part per million, low noise and low drift make it perfect for demanding applications.

Unlike zirconia-cell O2 analyzers, the FC-10 oxygen analyzer runs at room temperature and requires only a minute of warm-up time. Low operating temperature makes it more reliable than oxygen analyzers that rely on heated sensors. Furthermore, the FC-10 does not interact with CO2, water vapor or volatile organic compounds.  The long-life fuel cell sensor lasts approximately 18-36 months in normoxic service and can be replaced by the user in less than 5 minutes. Though designed primarily as a bench instrument, the FC-10 O2 analyzer is rugged, light and power-thrifty enough to use in the field as well.
