with Dissipation and Impedance Measurement (QCM-D)
The QCM-I MiniTM Quartz Crystal Microbalance is a high-sensitivity mass sensor which measures the change in frequency and dissipation of a quartz crystal resonator and any adsorbed film. QCMs are useful in any number of applications - biosensors, chemical sensors, corrosion, polymer films, nanoparticle films, etc. Changes in frequency as well as dissipation give information relating to changes in mass or elasticity of films.
The QCM-I, QCM-I Mini, and eQCM-I Mini are manufactured by MicroVacuum Ltd. (http://www.owls-sensors.com/) of Budapest, Hungary. MicroVacuum has integrated control of our USB-based potentiostats into their BioSense software (V3 or higher). Gamry has partnered with MicroVacuum for distribution of these instruments in the United States and China. Inquiries outside of the US and China can go directly to MicroVacuum (http://www.owls-sensors.com/contactus).
