pH meter electrode storage solution

  1. Storage of electrodes:
  2. Storage between measurements
  3. short term storage
  4. long term storage

Never store electrodes in deionized or distilled water, as this is the complete solution (3M KCL) migration from the electrode, reducing the hydrogen ion response.

Storage of electrodes:

Storage between measurements

The electrode should be left around the lab, do not store in distilled water.

short term storage

Immerse the tip of the pH electrode in the electrode storage solution (3 M KCL buffer solution/saturated KCL/pH 04.00). Do not allow a solution to evaporate and crystallize on the electrode.

long term storage

Electrode tip caps with safety cap.
