Biomass Sensor (Fiber Optic)
BugLab is an industry leader in the field of OD measurement instruments and Optical Biomass Sensor Systems.
The proBE 3000 immersive biomass sensor measures back-scattering reflectance at a wavelength of 1310 nm, where optical penetration into the medium is < 3 cm and the optically sampled volume is ~200 ul. This measurement volume is small enough so that measurements can be made in small benchtop vessels while at the same time maintaining a very wide linear range of sensitivity to biomass.
The sensor uses a patented bubble compensation algorithm effective over four orders of magnitude biomass range resulting in accurate biomass reporting across widely varying process conditions.
Highly linear inline multi-vessel biomass/OD monitoring from < 0.01 to > 200 g/L dry cell weight.
Optical penetration of less than 3 cm allows utilization in wide range of vessel sizes. Top plate or large vessel side port installation.
