- Lab Grade ORP Probe - Neptune Systems (DISCONTINUED)
Neptune Systems tested many probes until they found a manufacturer that would provide long life as well as consistent and accurate performance. Lab grade probes are held to tighter standards and use higher quality materials allowing a longer life, and holding calibration longer than standard grade probes.
- Replace a worn out ORP probe
- Purchase a ORP probe to add to your Apex System
- Purchase a ORP probe to use with your PM1 Extension Module
ORP is the Oxidation Reduction Potential that your aquarium has. As it can be mistaken for it is not the dissolved oxygen available in the tank as there is a different probe and monitor available for that. ORP is the ability to oxidize which if you are employing ozone on your tank an ORP controller or monitor is highly recommended.
The Neptune Lab Grade ORP Probe is great for any monitor or controller that requires a BNC style connection with a high-quality probe. If you are buying a new controller that doesn't include a probe like the Apex lite, adding a new tank and need another probe, or just replacing your worn out old probe look no further.
Lab Grade probes will hold calibration longer, and generally just last longer than standard grade ORP probes.
Note: Calibration solution not included. We suggest ordering multiple packets of calibration solution to have on hand and calibrating every 60-90 days for reliable results.
I Think it Works By Jason on 1/16/2017Jason would recommend this product to a friendWhile not as important as temp and pH probes, it does prove additional information to catch issues before they become major. It is important to set limits, so the apex controller lets you know there is an issue. Please note, it takes a week or two to break in the probe in your tank.

In so few words, this probe gives a numerical value for the battle between oxidizers and reducers.
A Must if you run O-Zone.
After 2 months of use this unit has undeniably made the purchase worthwhile. A Few things to keep in mind
-ORP is Inversely related to Ph (Rises at night, Falls during day)
-The avg. value of ORP differs between tanks.
-Sharp unprovoked changes are bad. (Death?)
-Clean with white vinegar every 60 days (at most)
It's a probe. It measures ORP By Magickiwi on 10/5/2013Magickiwi would recommend this product to a friendYup it is a probe....
