Online Oxygen Monitoring in Perfusion Systems
Single-Use O2 Flow-Through Cell FTC-SU-PSt3-S
Miniaturized chemical optical oxygen sensors integrated in single-use flow-through cells (FTC-SU-PSt3) allow non-invasive online monitoring of oxygen in perfusion systems. The sensors are fixed to color coded sticks, which can be attached to flow-through cells of different size and shape, according to your requirements. A polymer optical fiber connects the sensor inside the flow-through cell to the respective O2 meter (e. g. Fibox 4). The FTC-SU-PST3-S single-use cells are made of polycarbonate and are delivered beta-irradiated.
- Single-use flow-through cells
- Precise online monitoring of oxygen
- Different sizes and shapes for various flow rates
- Easy connection to external tubing
In-line Oxygen Monitoring in 3D Cell Culture
Since oxygen has a low solubility in culture medium it must be supplied to cells within 3D scaffolds via constant perfusion of the medium. The oxygen content of the medium before and after having passed by the cells can then help to determine whether the flow rate applied is sufficient. PreSens flow-through cells with integrated chemical optical sensors can be incorporated in the construct inlet and outlet and allow in-line measurement of oxygen tension.
