Flow-Through Cell Housed Oxygen Microsensor (FTCH)
The flow-through cell oxygen microsensor (FTCH) is a miniaturized fiber-optic oxygen sensor optimized for fast response time (t90<1 sec - in gases, < 5s - in liquids). The tiny probe tip size is from < 50 µm to 140 µm.
The microsensor is integrated in a sleeve consisting of Teflon tightened with a silicone rubber, which is mounted to a T-connector. The volume for liquid inside a FTCH cell for oxygen microsensors is about 310 (+/- 10) microliter. External tubings with an inner diameter of 1.6, 2.3 and 3.2 mm can be connected via Luer-Lock adapters. Liquids (like water, blood, etc.) can be pumped through the cell.
