Cañada College Upgrades Data Acquisition With Laboratory Renovation
June 5, 2008
Redwood City California’s Cañada College has chosen a 12-station MeasureNet Network as the data acquisition interface for its newly-renovated chemistry laboratory. The college will employ an array of probes, including electrochemistry probeware and MeasureNet's multi-function dual-beam colorimeter. Chemistry professors Jeanette Medina and Anuradha Pattanayak said the system’s higher resolution “will enable the use of smaller quantities of chemicals, thereby making experiments safer and cutting down on disposal. In addition, it will give us the ability to design innovative experiments to expand our chemistry curriculum to incorporate UV-VIS spectroscopy, chromatography and HPLC techniques.”
Serving some 6,000 full and part-time students, Cañada College ranks as one of the state's leading community colleges in transfer and completion rates. Its Redwood City location is home to Pixar Animation Studios and Oracle Corporation.
