Fluidic Configurations for QCM-I / QCM-D

Fluidic Configurations for QCM-I / QCM-D

Pump Flow Control with Manual Sample Introduction It is recommended that samples are introduced to the QCM-I flow-cells using a pump to control the flow. In the simplest setup, shown in figure 1, a peristaltic pump* is used to suck buffer directly from a beaker or other container. Sample is introduced to the flow-cell by […]

QCM-D with extended temperature range from -40°C to +150°C

The standard temperature range of our QCM-D system is from -40 °C up to 80 °C with better than +- 0.02 °C stability. We can control the temperature of the two QCM sensors independently from the other with the help of a computer controlled high precision Peltier driver. The temperature of the sensors are measured with a high stability Pt100 RTD and the cold side […]
QCM-I in Glove Box

Quartz Crystal Microbalance in Glove Box

MicroVacuum’s high performance QCM-I device is a Quartz Crystal Microbalance System with impedance analyses and dissipation monitoring (QCM -D), the Glove-Box QCM-I takes the high performance QCM-I instrument into a format suitable for mounting in a Glove-box or controlled atmosphere chamber and also includes the option of a wider temperature range e.g. between -30 °C and 80 °C.

The Principles of QCM-I

Quartz Crystal Microbalance with Impedance Analysis (QCM-I) and Dissipation Monitoring (QCM-D) The Quartz Crystal Microbalance is a well-established and sensitive technique used to measure the interactions of molecules, polymers and biological assemblies with a sensor surface, in air or liquid, label-free and in real time. It is based on the change in resonant frequency of […]
