openQCM Q-1 Quartz Crystal Microbalance is the brand-new Quartz Crystal Microbalance with frequency and dissipation monitoring
openQCM Q-1 is an open hardware device capable of measuring mass variations and viscoelastic properties of sample in contact with quartz crystal sensor. An highly-sensitive surface technology suitable for monitoring phenomena on molecular scale and studying biological or chemical materials and their interactions.
openQCM Q-1 analyses the characteristics of resonance curve which are passively mapped using a network analyzer, which has also the add-on capability of detecting and monitoring overtones. The dissipation monitoring feature makes openQCM Q-1 a reliable and accurate tool for applications in soft material research
The modular design gives the device more flexibility. The main electronics is separated from the the sensor module, which is capable of housing a wider range of sensors to meet the needs of users. A new designed QCM with an easy, practical and innovative enclosure system which gurantees the sealing of the sensor module.
openQCM Q-1 is a plug and play ready to use scientific device. Each instrument is mounted and tested in order to guarantee the best performances.
