|Description|| OROBOROS O2k-Core - the experimental system complete for basic high-resolution respirometry (HRR). The O2k-Core includes the O2k-Main Unit with stainless steel housing, O2k-Assembly Kit, two OroboPOS (polarographic oxygen sensors) and OroboPOS-Service Kit, DatLab software, the ISS-Integrated Suction System and the O2k-Titration Set. The O2k-Core supports all add-on O2k-Modules of the O2k, and is a component of the O2k-Fluorometer.
On-line display of oxygen flux (rate of respiration) is provided in addition to the conventional 'oxygraphic' plot of oxygen concentration over time. Highest signal stability minimizes the required amounts of biological sample, and provides the basis for resolution in the extreme low-oxygen range. Peltier temperature control provides a thermal stability at ±0.002 °C in the range of 4 °C to 47 °C at typical constant room temperature. Electronically controlled PVDF or PEEK stirrers are integrated in the two-chamber design of the O2k, and a barometric pressure transducer enables automatic oxygen calibrations implemented in the DatLab software.
The O2k is a sole source apparatus with no other instruments meeting its specifications.

|O2k-Main Unit||The O2k-Main Unit is a component of the O2k-Core. The O2k-Main Unit consists of functionally defined, integral elements, the (O2k-Main Basic, O2k-Peltier Temperature Control, two O2k-Electromagnetic Stirrer Twin-Control units, two O2k-Amperometric OroboPOS Twin-Channels, O2k-Barometric Pressure Transducer), which cannot be obtained separately.||20000|
|O2k-Assembly Kit||The O2k-Assembly Kit is a component of the O2k-Core, consisting of 2 O2k-Chambers (Duran glass), 2 PVDF Stirrer-Bars, 2 PVDF or PEEK O2k-Stoppers, O2k-Chamber Holders OroboPOS-Holders and OroboPOS-Connectors, and cables (power supply, USB-connection). Several components of the O2k-Assembly Kit are included in the O2k-Service Box either for shipment or for storage.||20100|
|2 OroboPOS||The 2 OroboPOS set (two polarographic oxygen sensors, POS) is included in the O2k-Core, shipped with the O2k in the O2k-Service Box. For details, see OroboPOS.||20600|
|OroboPOS-Service Kit||OroboPOS-Service_Kit, with O2k-Service Box including all oxygen sensor service accessories for membrane mounting and service of the OroboPOS.||20610-02|
|DatLab||DatLab is the O2k-Software for Data Acquisition & Analysis, specifically developed for O2k high-resolution respirometry with the Oxygraph-2k. The newest DatLab version is included in the O2k-Core, and updates of DatLab are free of charge during the warranty period of the O2k.||20700|
|ISS-Integrated Suction System||ISS-Integrated Suction System: Suction pump 230 or 120 V with stainless steel housing, 2 liter waste bottle, filter and tubing; for siphoning off excess medium from the O2k-Stopper and for emptying the O2k-Chambers. The ISS is included as a standard component of the O2k-Core. Media containing living cells or microorganisms, various poisons (inhibitors, uncouplers) and mixtures of proteins and substrates are safely disposed off in the 2-litre waste bottle.
The suction pump (230 V or 120 V) is enclosed in a stainless steel housing, which holds a readily accessible mains switch, two removable receptacles for the tip of the tubing, an easily removable and safe connection to the gas filter which further connects to the fully stabilized waste bottle. The waste bottle with filter can be simply removed for emptying, cleaning and drying.For specific country configurations, see Product ID 28101, 28102, 28103.
|O2k-Titration Set||The O2k-Titration Set consists of Hamilton microsyringes (6 x 10 mm3 and 3 spare plungers, 6 x 25 mm3, 2 x 50 mm3, 1 x 500 mm3), provided in the Syringe Storage Box with Syringe Labels, a set of two Syringe Racks with Syringe Collars, and a set of two Tube Racks. The O2k-Titration Set is a basic HRR-Accessory included in the O2k-Core.||20820-02|
|O2k-Compendium||O2k-Compendium for high-resolution respirometry, consisting of the O2k-Manual and a USB flash drive with DatLab, O2k-Manual, O2k-Protocols, O2k-Publications, and info on O2k-Workshops. The O2k-Compendium is a component of the O2k-Core.||20900|
