High-quality sensors are a basic prerequisite for building reliable laboratory and analytical equipment, securinge cold chains and storinge biological agents at low temperatures. Precise data is essential, regardless of whether the requirement is for passive monitoring, or active control of a medical device. Precision measurement is key for accurate patient diagnosis and treatment, as well as the proper interpretation of test results in a research environment. Laboratory and analytical equipment for quality assurance and production is a significant capital investment. with an anticipated long service life for the apparatus. In addition to having high durability, platinum sensors from Heraeus conform to a standardized, internationally recognized characteristic curve. Standardization insures ease of sensor replacement for years to come. With a special emphasis on providing high-volume measurement solutions, Heraeus provides competence, expertise, and decades of experience in platinum thin-film technology.
Platinum Temperature Sensors for Life Science Applications
In research, development and production, controlled conditions and precision data are essential success factors. Temperature is a critical control parameter in these processes. Also in the pharmaceutical and medical field, the materials and equipment used must be biocompatible and work reliably for many years.
Reliable sensors in laboratory and analytical equipment
Sensors for safe and stable monitoring in medical environments
Many biopharmaceuticals and active ingredients require low temperature and constant cooling during production, transport and storage. Depending upon the requirements, temperatures down to -80°C or lower must be safely maintained and monitored. C Series platinum sensors from Heraeus are extremely robust against mechanical and thermal stress and provide a highly repeatable signal down to the temperature of liquid nitrogen –approximately -200°C).
