I'm am refurbishing some old CO2 incubators. I would like to test the precision of the CO2 sensor. There is a sample port on this incubator.

What sorts of methods are commonly used to measure CO2 in these incubators?

Strangely, the manufacturer of the incubator makes no recommendations.

I need to be able to report the measurement as a percentage.
