Dri-Ref™ reference electrodes were developed by WPI to have extremely low electrolyte leakage properties, hence the name “Dri-Ref.” In addition to this key feature, these electrodes exhibit stable and reproducible potential and low resistance. Stored in KCl when not in use, they have a long life expectancy. Low leakage is achieved by using KONBO™, a product combining modern ceramic and conductive polymer technology, as the liquid junction. Electrode resistance is low, an important consideration when making low-noise measurements.
Although the internal filling solution contains KCI, the low fluid leakage means Dri-Ref may be used in combination with ion selective electrodes, including those for K+ and Cl-, without significant contamination from the reference electrode.
The Dri-Ref electrodes are che
