Innovative Oxygen and pH Sensing in 3D Cell Culture

PyroScience is a manufacturer and expert for opto-chemical sensors and offers innovative sensor concepts based on ultra-compact stand-alone, PC-operated or OEM fiber-optic meters. The meters can be operated with a great variety of fiber-based and contactless optical O2, pH and temperature sensors. Fiber-based sensors comprise micro- and minisensors and robust probes for different analyte ranges, while contactless sensor solutions allow for non-invasive measurements with optical read-out from the outside, thereby reducing the risk of contamination or leakage. They include sensor spots for oxygen, pH and temperature (also available as self-adhesive and sterilized version) and oxygen nanoprobes (OXNANO) for dissolution in aqueous culture media and for advanced application in microfluidics. Fixed fiber-based oxygen microsensors (OXF50) can be used for profiling in spheroids and for measurements of oxygen gradients at high spatial resolution.
