The QSense® Initiator is a superior QCM with Dissipation monitoring technology instrument.

In this instrument, the focus is on the basic functions and qualities of a QSense instrument; It produces QCM-D data with superior accuracy, has a robust design with controlled liquid flow and enables a wide range of experimental conditions.


The QSense Initiator is a one-channel system with a fixed module in which the sensor is placed. The module is connected to the liquid handling system which ensures a controlled flow over the sensor surface. The instrument is compatible with all QSensors.
