microLAB VERSA

With dedicated laboratory learning time becoming less and less available, instructors are finding ways to make the most of the face-to-face time they have. They’re utilizing tools and technology to reach students in-and-outside the classroom.

Computer-based measurement systems have long been proven valuable in maximizing laboratory time so students can focus their learning on comprehending the principles of science and not tedious graphing and calculations. Students learn more, faster, with more accurate and robust data. For almost 20 years we’ve been leaders in this electronic data acquisition, providing colleges with the most precise, versatile, dependable computer-based measurement systems on the market. We’re now bringing all that to you in a smaller package. 

We've taken the power of microLAB technology and placed it in a safe, compact interface that brings the chemistry lab directly to your students wherever they are. With small sample sizes and a small footprint the microLAB VERSA can safely and easily fit in a laboratory or at-home setting, making it the ideal choice for any remote chemistry courses taught at high-school or university levels. The microLAB VERSA provides precise, real-time data collection and vibrant, engaging analysis for 85% of the topics covered in an ACS Accredited introductory chemistry course.

Engage your students in traditional labs, at-home labs, or over video conferencing with live experiments and real-time data.

  • Absorption Spectrophotometry
    • An easy, safe, and inexpensive way to start students exploring analytical chemistry. Monochromatic LED light sources provide quick and accurate measurements used to determine the identity and concentration of colored solutions.
  • The Energy of Light + Plank's Constant
    • Experience the relationship between energy and color, wavelength, and frequency of light waves. Build an understanding of the behavior of electrons in atoms and molecules with visual experiments that measure the energy required to create light.
  • Molecular Motion, Energy, and Temperature
    • Understand the driving force behind chemical reactions by using Celsius and absolute temperature to observe changes in energy and the relationship between molecular motion, energy, and the physical state of atoms.
  • Absolute Temperature, Avagadro's Number, and Gas Laws
    • Using gas pressure, students can track the progress of chemical reactions, and demonstrate gas laws and their relationship to absolute temperature, pressure, volume, and moles.
  • Proton Transfer | Acid-Base Chemistry
    • Explore the importance of Hydrogen ions in chemical reactions with pH, indicators, buffers, and Titration Curves.
  • Electron Transfer | Electrochemistry
    • Easily explore the concepts of spontaneous electron transfer that make up the Electrochemical Series, and their relationship to oxidation and reduction, using simple experiments involving metallic electrodes and citrus batteries. Students can also investigate the Nernst equation variables.
