Today, Vaisala, a global leader in weather, environmental, and industrial measurements, introduced a portable carbon dioxide probe called the GMP80P, which is designed for applications such as life science incubators and other demanding environments where accuracy, reliability, and stability are required. 

The Vaisala GMP80P carbon dioxide probe with pump sampling is the newest product to Vaisala's portable products family. It can be used with a handheld Indigo80 indicator to meet professional CO2 measurement requirements. The GMP80P measurement probe is ideal for sampling CO2 from incubators, spot-checking fixed CO2 transmitters, and sampling from other areas. 

A robust design for demanding applications

It is ideal for demanding industrial applications where CO2 concentration levels are to be measured precisely and accurately at a given time. Its rugged enclosure guarantees reliable performance in demanding conditions. 

“I am delighted to announce the addition of the new portable probe to the modular portable product family. With the Vaisala Indigo80 handheld indicator and compatible products, you can measure high-quality data for a wide range of industrial processes. The new CO2 measurement probe is designed to meet the demands of the most demanding applications, such as life science incubators. This probe, for example, allows you to acquire samples with a pumping system from inside the incubator without opening the door. In this way, the measurement won't affect the incubator condition. The measurement can be done much faster without waiting for the cabinet to stabilize again. By doing this, it is also possible to ensure the incubation process continues without contamination," says Vaisala Product Manager Vuokko Lantz. 
Designed to meet customer demands, the GMP80P measurement probe can be easily attached to the incubator. A compact indicator connected to the GMP80P can monitor CO2 measurement data. Additionally, the Indigo80 can be used to log measurement data from the GMP80P, and calibration and adjustment are easy with the device.

“Our customers wanted a simple solution with the added benefit of a pump function that could be used even in the most demanding conditions when measuring important CO2 levels in incubators”, says Lantz. We offer our customers the GMP80P measurement probe with a high degree of reliability and accuracy. In addition, we offer many accessories like sampling tube and pipe options. This way the probe can be easily installed to various inlets in the incubator door or walls. 'We are very confident that Vaisala's new probe will meet their high quality and performance standards," Lantz concludes. 

Vaisala GMP80P carbon dioxide probe with pump sampling will be available in June 2024 on the North American and European markets.
