Follow Nanoscale Molecular Interactions and Surface Phenomena in Real-time 

Q-Sense is a line of analytical instrumentation based on Quartz Crystal Microbalance with Dissipation monitoring (QCM-D) technology. This technology enables nanoscale mass and structural changes to be measured and therefore offers a robust method for studying molecular interactions and surface phenomena. Measurements are based on changes in vibration frequency of a quartz crystal sensor (an acoustic resonator) in response to interactions or reactions occuring on the sensor surface. The product range includes fully automated systems as well as flexible set-ups with specialty modules together with a wide range of sensor coatings.

Q-Sense – the World Leader in Quartz Crystal Microbalance

Since 1999, when the first commercial QCM-D instrument was created, Q-Sense has become the world leader in Quartz Crystal Microbalance based instrumentation. Today Q-Sense instruments can be found in over 25 countries worldwide and QCM-D technology has been published in over 1700 publications. Q-Sense has been part of Biolin Scientific since 2003.

Today we are proud to offer:

  • The most advanced Quartz Crystal Microbalance on the market
    The Q-Sense Omega Auto has unmatched automation, ease of use and 8-sensor capabilities
  • Precision
    Unlike other microbalances, Q-Sense instruments simultaneously measure both mass and rigidity enabling accurate, quantitative measurements of both rigid and soft films, measuring more than 200 data points/second.
  • Quality
    Q-Sense systems enable you to be up and running in minutes with top of the line data quality, baseline stability and reproducibility. 
  • Versatility
    The Q-Sense platform includes a number of modules that enable the QCM-D technology to be combined with other measurements including electrochemistry, microscopy, ALD, etc…. We also offer an extensive range of sensor coatings to meet various industry, application and surface coating needs.
