How do I maintain my ammonia electrode?

The tip of the electrode should be rinsed with deionised water between measurements. To maintain electrode health strongly acidic samples, strong detergents or organic solvents should be avoided.

To take a reading ammonia electrodes require the end cap to be filled with ammonium chloride solution. This solution should be removed after each usage, so that the electrode is stored dry, in order to prevent the solution from damaging the membrane. If this is done the membrane will last 3-6 months depending on usage. 2 caps are initially included with the TRUEscience Ammonia ion selective electrode.
