Which types and sizes of shake flasks with integrated sensors (SFS) are offered by PreSens?
PreSens offers 3 types of shake flasks with integrated sensors:
- Plastic flasks made of polycarbonate (PC):
PreSens offers plastic shake flasks with integrated oxygen and pH sensors. PreSens uses Corning flasks made of polycarbonate to manufacture the flasks with sensors. Sizes of 125 mL, 250 mL, 500 mL, 1000 mL, 2000 mL, 3000 mL and 5000 mL are offered. All offered sizes are available with and without baffles.
- Glass flasks with oxygen sensor:
PreSens offers glass flasks with oxygen sensors only, as there is no pH sensor available, which stands multiple autoclaving cycles. These glass flasks with O2 sensor can be autoclaved for about 50 cultivations.
You can self-integrate one-time autoclavable pH and CO2 sensor spots in these flasks. We offer an integration set (IS-SP) which eases the sensor integration. (Watch our video on sensor spot integration in flasks.) However, the pH and CO2 sensors have to be replaced for further cultivations.
- Integration of oxygen sensors into your glass flasks:
PreSens also offers the integration of oxygen sensors into specific glass flasks. The customer sends his / her flasks to PreSens and PreSens integrates autoclavable oxygen sensors into these flasks. Flasks with oxygen sensor are autoclavable for about 50 times, with additional pH or CO2 sensors they are one-time autoclavable. (These sensors can be replaced by the customer.)
