openQCM Sensor Module
The sensor module has been designed to be compatible with all openQCM devices and it can host a large variety of quartz sensors. The sensor module will be ship with its proximity electronic. Fluidic or Open covers not included.
NOTE: a sensor module is already included in the openQCM Q-1 and openQCM Wi2 devices
The new openQCM sensor module has been designed to be compatible with all openQCM devices and it can host a large variety of quartz sensors with different diameters and nominal frequencies. A new device designed to be flexible and customisable according to users' needs
The materials in contact with the sample are just those of the window cell (PMMA or PTFE) and o-ring (FKM Viton ®). The volume of the measuring cell varies between 50 μl to 200 μl.
The sensor module can mount both a microfluidic window for flow and static measurements and an open window for pipetting samples directly on the sensor surface.
