Case Study: Active sensor feeding with micropumps
We are always on the lookout for more applications for microfluidic systems and ways our mp6 micropump can improve a process. One of these applications is the use of a CO2 sensor. We wrote a case study to give you a more detailed insight into how a CO2-sensor works in a microfluidic environment.
Together with the request for higher safety and efficiency in industrial processes, the use of sensors increases continuously. To generate stable and defined measurement values in these processes, the environmental conditions of the sensor need to be kept at a constant level. This especially applies to feeding the sensor with an analyte fluid. Besides a faster response to changing analyte properties, a lowered target concentration at the point of measurement can be balanced as applied for catalytic sensors for example.
