Micro-invasive Measurements in Customized Applications
Implantable pH Microsensor IMP-HP5
The implantable pH Microsensor IMP-HP5 is not mounted into any additional housing and therefore ideally suited for implementation in customized applications. The bare glass fiber tip can be mounted to your own housings, steel tubes, catheters, etc. This tiny probe has a tip size of 150 μm, while the outer diameter ranges from 140 μm to 900 μm. As the IMP-HP5 is free of metal, it can be used in the presence of high electromagnetical fields and even NMR environment.
- High spatial resolution
- Measurement in smallest volumes
- Designed for customized applications
- Integration into plant and animal tissue
- Optimized for culture media and physiological solutions
- Independent of electromagnetic fields
pH Measurement in Plants & Animals
pH Microsensors can be implemented in plant tissue or even in small animals. New insights in physiological aspects can be obtained. Due to the small size of the probes only a minimal disturbance will occur.
pH Measurement in Small Volumes
Due to the small dimension of the probe, pH measurements can be done in very small volumes - even in microtiter plates of a higher format like 384 or 1536. No need for reference electrodes - a real step forward, especially in small volumes. Of course, the measurement is independent of electromagnetical fields - this even allows measuring in NMR spectrometers.
