The utilization of accurate, and precise gas detection and measurement solutions is vital to ensure validation in these scientific research projects.

Reliable, innovative and consistent gas sensing technologies have been utilized in thousands of research applications including composting, respiratory, capnography, neuroscience, robotics, incubation, indoor air quality, biology, and hundreds more.

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

The researchers could record hyper-accurate data by using the SprintIR6S at 20x per second by incorporating the CO2Meter GasLab Data Logging Software.

This is just a small example of industry (CO2Meter) and research (the university) collaborating on a project to generate replicable and accurate solutions. Consumers will eventually realize the benefits of these types of research, although it will take years for these new technologies to reach the markets.

Oxygen mask design safety was another intriguing university project from the National University capstone project. Researchers could perform 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 resulted in supplying the incredibly useful and reliable results shown below. A memorable science research project from Walt Whitman High School in Cold Spring Harbor should also be recognized in addition to these university studies.

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

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 very great help so far!
