Plugs with Sensors for Microfluidic and Millifluidic Chips
The O2 SensorPlug by PreSens is specifically designed for millifluidic and microfluidic applications. With the appropriate chip and port design, SensorPlugs allow for online monitoring of O2 at one or several positions on your microfluidic device. An optical sensor is attached to e.g. a Mini-Luer plug, which can easily be integrated in your chip via the corresponding port. A polymer optical fiber with 1 mm diameter connects the plug with an oxygen meter. The sensor is read out non-invasively, so there is no risk of contamination. SensorPlugs are delivered beta irradiated and pre-calibrated and you are ready to start your measurements right away.
We offer customized SensorPlug formats as well as support for chip and port design including the VisiSens 2D imaging system for preliminary evaluation of your chip. The O2 SensorPlugs can be combined with pH and CO2 SensorPlugs and measurements can be controlled from one PC via the PreSens Measurement Studio 2 software.

- Beta irradiated
- Compatible with PMS2, standard PreSens O2 meters & EOMs
Cell Culture Microenvironment Monitoring
SensorPlugs offer the unique possibility to measure contactless directly inside the channel. This way the cells' undisturbed microenvironment can be monitored and investigated. Tumor cell research, the assessment of cell metabolism or cell signaling in organ-on-a-chip applications will profit from this information.
Reaction Monitoring in Microfluidics
Oxygen, pH and CO2 are important parameters in many chemical reactions. Direct monitoring in the microchannels can enable precise control of the reactions and deliver decisive information about reaction speed. Oxygen monitoring with SensorPlugs is a further step towards real Lab-on-a-Chip applications.
