Oxygen Monitoring in Perfusion Systems with Small Volumes

Oxygen Microsensor Integrated in a Metal Flow-Through Cell FTCM-PSt1

A microsensor is integrated in a stainless steel tee with connectors for 1/16” steel tubing. The flow-through cell’s inner volume of 2.1 µL is extraordinarily small. It is suited for all applications where only small volumes are available. The tapered sensor type ensures real-time measurement with its fast response time of t90 < 1 sec. in gas and < 5 sec. in liquids.

  • Perfusion monitoring in smallest volumes
  • High temporal resolution (< 5 sec.)
  • No consumption of oxygen
  • Measures in liquids as well as in the gas phase
