University Research and CO2Meter Sensor Technologies

University Research and CO2Meter Sensor Technologies

Over the years, CO2Meter has worked closely with universities such as Harvard, Purdue, UC Berkeley and many others that continue to use our sensor technologies to gather data for scientific research, discovery, and advancements.

To ensure validation in these scientific research projects the use of accurate gas detection sensor solutions is fundamental.

Accurate, reliable, and consistent gas sensing technologies have been used in dozens of research applications including incubation, neuroscience, robotics, biology, indoor air quality, agriculture, capnography, cryogenics, and more.

This past year, a California University was awarded a government grant to utilize the SprintIR6S 20% CO2 Smart Sensor technology in a rare brain imaging application dedicated to understanding the structure, function and direct effect of carbon dioxide and cerebral blood flow.

In using the SprintIR6S the researchers were able to record hyper-accurate data at 20x per second by incorporating the CO2Meter GasLab Data Logging Software.

This is just one example of research (the university) and the industry (CO2Meter) collaborating on a project to create accurate and replicable solutions that customers will realize for years to come. 

Another intriguing university project involved Oxygen mask design safety, from the National University capstone project. Researchers were able to conduct a study on the overall importance of O2 concentrations passing through an F-35 Lightning II pilot mask.

The CM-42951 0-25% UV Flux Oxygen Smart Sensor was incorporated into this study and led to providing the incredibly useful and reliable results shown below.

Aside from these university studies, we also want to recognize a memorable science research project from Walt Whitman High School in Cold Spring Harbor.

CO2Meter was able to assist in a project which entailed measuring CO2 levels both indoors and outdoors around the community with the K30 10,000 ppm CO2 sensor and Arduino Uno Micro-controller. The students were not only grateful for the sensor technologies CO2Meter supplied but they also won several accolades at High School level competitions for their research. 

Aaron, a student at Walt Whitman stated, "As I am relatively new to Arduino in general, I have been using the examples from the CO2Meter site to help me get started. The code examples online have been a very great help so far!".

The team at CO2Meter is proud to have the opportunity to provide technologies and support for those researchers conducting the studies today that are creating tomorrow's advancements. 

What will the future hold for scientific research and solutions you might ask?

CO2Meter found a list of intriguing university studies on the horizon which also incorporate CO2 sensing, and the possibilities are endless. 

  • Cell Respiration
  • Cactus mediated CO2 removal in micro-gravity
