Temperature dependence of magnetic susceptibility of polycrystalline oxygen samples has been measured in the range from 1 to 54 K. The measurements were performed using our home-designed SQUID-based gradiometer. The sensitivity of the instrument with respect to susceptibility reaches values of the order of 10-13. The results obtained are compared with earlier literature data.
