How to use pH Buffer Solution?

PH Buffer Solution is used to calibrate pH measuring instruments such as:

Using pH buffer solution or pH calibration buffer is very easy and straightforward. But preparation is everything, so make sure you follow the next steps and you will calibrate your pH meter and probe like a professional.

PH Calibration Solution pH 7

All our pH buffer solutions are compatible with all brands and manufacturers of pH meters and pH electrodes. 

  1. Make sure you have the correct pH buffer solution. You can find the exact pH buffer solution in the manual of your pH meter or pH electrode. Some pH meter or pH probe require a calibration on 2 or 3 points, so you need to have all 3 available. 
  2. Check if your pH calibration buffer is still fresh. It needs to be stored in a dry and dark place. It is very important that you never store your pH buffer solution in direct sunlight. Check the expiry date.
  3. Prepare a clean cup that is just big enough so that you can fit your pH meter or pH electrode inside it.
  4. Fill the cup with pH calibration buffer, just enough so the pH electrode is fully submerged in the pH buffer solution.
  5. Perform the calibration (follow the manual of your pH meter or pH probe)
  6. Always try to avoid contamination by making sure you do not mix different pH calibration buffers. 
  7. Make sure you seal the bottle and store it in a dark and dry place outside the reach of children. 

NEVER pour used pH calibration buffer back in the bottle. pH buffer solution can only be used 1 time.
