QSense® Explorer is the versatile and modular instrument which enables endless experiment possibilities and the ability to combine QCM-D measurements with other techniques thanks to its compact design and exchangeable flow module. Other modules available includes window module, electrochemistry module, open module and more. See the full list of available modules. Apart from the raw data monitored in real-time, mass/thickness, viscoelastic parameters and adsorption rates can easily be extracted from the analysis software.
The module is connected directly to the liquid handling system which creates a controlled flow of sample over the sensor surface.
* Several other sensor materials are available, for example, SiO2, Titanium, Stainless stell, Polystyrene to mention a few.
** Data from 1 sensor in single frequency mode. 1 data point is collected every 5 seconds. The Sauerbrey relation is assumed to be valid.
*** Data from multiple frequency mode (7 harmonics) are collected within 1 second. The Sauerbrey relation is assumed to be valid.
**** Data from 3 harmonics are collected in about a second. Peak to peak value from one minute data acquisition.
