Aber Instruments has a wide range of probes to suit all applications, the 12mm diameter probes ideal for small bioreactors and 25mm diameter for larger vessels, typically used in manufacturing / production environments.

Tri clamp probe and probe port adaptors are also available. Please contact us for details.

All probes are electro-polished and passivated with options for USP class VI and FDA CFR21 177 certificates. By default a probe is shipped with a standard certificate of traceability. If you wish to have a full breakdown of all the materials used in the production of a probe, a ‘Probe Certificate of Conformance’ package is available.

    Port adaptors

    The port adaptors are designed to allow the 12mm straight Aber probes to be fitted into either Braun or Applikon 19mm (3/4”) top plate, female port fitting. The New Brunswick version is similar but fits a male threaded port on either the top plate or side entry port. The o’rings provide a seal and the nut with nylon ferrules lock the probe in place.
