    Good Laboratory Practice Files

    WQSensors software automatically records every calibration to a Good Laboratory Practice (GLP) file. The GLP file includes date & time, calibration values, and mV values for each calibration. This file is stored on the sensor and will carry over between computers. The GLP files can be accessed for any sensor connected to the computer by […]

    Calibrating WQ-BR Bromide Smart USB Sensor

    It is recommended that calibration is done on a daily basis, or at least prior to each use. During calibration, observe the slope of the mV readings between the two points that are being used for calibration. Slope is defined as the change in voltage read by the sensor with a ten-fold change in concentration […]
