Hi Lab Guy,
I need to do infiltration of plant tissues with a solution containing bacteria. The literature suggests to expose plant tissue to a low vacuum of around 80.000 Pascal/24 inches Hg. To perform this experimental step, I am looking for a desiccator.
The major difficulty I have is that those desiccators come without the vacuum gauge. I have been searching for the proper gauge and how to connect it to the tubing between the desiccator and the pump and got lost. Could you please recommend:
1) The proper and reasonably priced vacuum gauge and tubing connectors that can be used effectively with F42010-0000 or F41099-0000 desiccators, to estimate the lower pressure in a range 50.000- 101.325 pascals
2) Proper connectors and vacuum tubing
