Top 5 Q-Sensors for biomaterials & medical device research

Posted by Anna Oom on September 11, 2015

The QCM-D technology is used for research in many biomaterial- and medical device applications. Since the sensor is a critical part of the measurement, and the coating of the sensor is even more important in order to get the desired interactions, we wanted to give you some inspiration to a number of our sensor coatings suitable for biomaterial- and medical device research.
