Quartz Crystal Microbalance with damping

3T-analytik has developed quartz sensor instruments, the qCell-family, based on Quartz Crystal Microbalance (QCM) technology. The high sensitivity to mass and structural property variation enables QCM to be a powerful tool for gaining real time insights into molecular interactions, biofilms, liquid properties and even the analysis of blood. Quartz sensors are highly sensitive to the mass and the material properties of deposited molecular layers as well as of the wetting liquids at their surface. ...
