ANALOX Sensor Technology played an important part in last week’s episode of Jamie’s Dream School on Channel 4.
In the programme, participating student Danielle discovered a fascination for science through spending three days and nights in a sealed biosphere.
When environmentalist Jayne Poynter decided to move her science lesson out of the classroom, she installed a biosphere in the grounds of “Dream School”, taking the students inside to study eco-systems and charging them with constantly monitoring the oxygen levels to ensure the plants were creating enough of the gas for humans to survive.
The students are shown monitoring an Analox Aspida installed inside the biosphere.
Analox supplied the Aspida along with a number of other analysers to ensure the safety of the participants at all times.
The company visited the set to install and demonstrate fixed and portable units used to monitor the levels of carbon dioxide, oxygen, temperature and humidity within the biosphere.
Michelle Morley of Analox Sensor Technology said: “Analox was delighted to play its part in Jamie’s Dream School, not only in ensuring the safety of the participants but also in giving the students the tools to monitor the atmosphere in which they were living and studying for a few days.”
The Aspida was launched by Analox in 2009 as a portable detector of both high carbon dioxide (CO²) levels and low oxygen (O²) levels. It is designed to minimise risks in potentially dangerous environments and sounds an alarm should CO² levels rise or O² levels fall.
Analox Sensor Technology Ltd is based in Stokesley and specialises in the design and manufacture of gas analysers for military and commercial use.
