Strathkelvin Instruments/Ordering Information
You may order direct from Strathkelvin Instruments if we do not have a distributor in your country.

When ordering from us, please specify:
We endeavour to have all items available ex-stock. If any item is temporarily out of stock, we will despatch what is available immediately, the remaining items being forwarded as soon as possible.
Despatch is by courier, which is fast and reliable. Special export packaging is used for protection of the instruments and accessories whilst in transit.
The instruments are guaranteed for 1 year from the date of despatch. Electrodes are guaranteed for one month. (It is not possible to provide a longer guarantee period than this with electrodes since their life is dependent upon the care exercised by the operator).
Servicing requirements are very unlikely to arise. If we do not yet have a service agent in your country, we will service your instrument within 48 hours if you return it to us.
Payment must be made in the currency stipulated within 30 days of invoice, with all commissions paid by the purchasers.
If you would like specialist advice for your particular application, please fax, telephone or email us, using the contact us page.
Oxygen Measurement Systems
The 782 meter and 929 system comprises an interface and software together with a comprehensive instruction manual. A free demo disk is available.
Whether purchasing the 929 or a 782 oxygen meter, you will also need to purchase one or more 1302 oxygen electrodes, an electrode service kit and electrode holders or measurement cells. The service kit contains spare standard polypropylene membranes, ‘O’ rings, a membrane applicator and electrolyte.
MT200, MT200A, RC300, RC350 and RC650
For fast reactions, such as mitochondrial respiration, we recommend the use of FEP membranes. It is necessary to use the SI035 electrode jacket (which has a fine pressure relief hole) with these membranes. Please note that when using FEP membranes, the oxygen flux through the membrane is increased and vigorous stirring at the electrode tip is required.
The RC300 and RC350 are supplied complete with the central electrode holder.
Water Baths and Underwater Magnetic Stirrer
We can quote for the supply of: a suitable waterbath to circulate constant temperature water for the MC100, MT200, MT200A, RC300/350, RC650 and TC500; underwater magnetic stirrers for use with the RC400, if requested.
