Must-Have Holiday Gifts for Scientists and Lab Professionals


Looking for a gift for a lab co-worker or a few stocking stuffers for the scientist in your family? Don’t overlook gifts that can make someone’s job a little easier and safer. We listed a few cool tools below that we think would make the scientist or lab professional in your life very happy this holiday season.

1. Data loggers with remote monitoring

If storing valuable samples, every lab professional should have a Digi-Sense® data logger with TraceableLIVE® remote monitoring to securely and wirelessly monitor critical environments and get notified via a smartphone, tablet, or PC if anything goes wrong. This handy instrument can send emails, texts, and push notifications on the monitored environments. The end user can remotely view data logging history, run reports, and control alarm parameters. This is a great gift for someone who wants to stay connected to their critical environments around the clock.

2. Water quality pocket testers

Oakton thought of everything when designing these nifty pocket testers including a leakproof cap that functions as a sample/calibration cup, hydrating cup, and stabilizing base to stand the meter upright. These are ideal for those working in the lab or out in the field. Need more ideas? Check out the complete Oakton product line.
