PreSens' Featured Oxygen Measurement System for Perfusion Monitoring
This multi-channel oxygen meter is ideally suited for benchtop applications. It is compatible with non-invasive sensors, dipping probes and flow-through cells of type PSt3 (detection limit 15 ppb dissolved oxygen, 0 – 100 % oxygen). Each channel of OXY-4 SMA has separate temperature compensation, so most precise measurements in environments with changing temperatures can be taken. The oxygen meter is USB-powered and operated with the PreSens Measurement Studio 2 software, which enables simultaneous control of several devices, so measurement networks can be set up. With numerous features and additional pressure and salinity compensation, the software makes the OXY-4 SMA applicable in almost any application.
A polymer optical fiber (POF) is needed to transfer excitation light to the sensor and the sensor response back to the meter. We offer different versions for different meters depending on their optical connector type. A POF enables non-invasive and non-destructive measurements to be made from the outside through the wall of a transparent or slightly colored container. The POF with SMA connector is compatible with meters of the Fibox, OXY-1 SMA, OXY-1 WM,OXY mini and pH-1 SMA series, as well as the CO2-1 SMA. The POF with ST connector is compatible with meters of the Microx 4 and OXY-1 ST series. Different standard lengths are offered, e. g. 2.5 m, and fibers with connectors on one or both ends are available, depending on your adapter or sensor application.
Miniaturized chemical optical oxygen sensors integrated in flow-through cells (FTC-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-PST3 cells are made of polycarbonate.
