Electrochemistry Modules

The QSense® Electrochemistry Module, enables simultaneous Quartz Crystal Microbalance with Dissipation Monitoring and Electrochemical measurements (EQCM-D) or QCM-D and Electrochemical Impedance Spectroscopy (EIS) measurements.

The QSense Electrochemistry Module (QEM 401) is suited for the QSense Explorer system but is also compatible with the QSense Analyzer system.

Ellipsometry Module

The QSense® Ellipsometry Module enables simultaneous QCM-D and ellipsometry measurements on the same substrate.

The QSense Ellipsometry module is compatible with the QSense Explorer system.

Flow Module

This standard QSense® flow module is included with the QSense Explorer and QSense Analyzer instruments.

The flow modules can be completely disassembled, allowing thorough cleaning of the module components, for instance in an ultrasonic bath. Additional flow modules can be purchased to reduce the risk of contamination in a multi-user environment, and thus improve reproducibility and reliability.

Humidity Module

The QSense® Humidity module is designed to enable measurements of vapor uptake and release from thin films coated on the sensor.

It is an optional module compatible with both the QSense Explorer and Analyzer systems.

Open Module

The QSense® Open Module is designed to enable direct access to the sensor surface required by some applications, e.g., pipetting of sample directly onto the sensor surface. The Open Module is also useful for quick adsorption tests or other experiments when flow conditions are not required.

The QSense Open module is compatible with both the QSense Explorer (previously QSense E1) and QSense Analyzer (previously QSense E4) systems.

Window Module

The QSense® Window Module allows optical access to the sensor surface through a sapphire window.

The QSense Window module is compatible with both the QSense Explorer and QSense Analyzer systems.

PTFE Flow Module

The PTFE Flow module is suitable for flow or stagnant measurements where the reagents or molecules are sensitive to interactions with titanium. The PTFE Flow module is similar to the QSense® Flow module QFM 401 but the titanium flow part is here exchanged for PTFE (Teflon®-like).

The PTFE Flow module is compatible with the QSense Explorer and the QSense Analyzer systems.
