Fluorous ISEs are sensors based on Teflon(R) like materials. Although Teflon(R) itself can not be used as a sensing membrane, we like to refer to them, when asked, as Teflon(R) like sensors because most everyone is familiar with the properties of Teflon(R). The sensing membrane is non-stick and does not foul easily. In order to make sensing membranes, various components are compounded with Teflon(R).
United Science’s technology is based on >$1M in research conducted at the University of Minnesota over the last 5 years. The “Fluorous” ISE product is differentiated from other ISEs in that it has been tested in complex mining solutions and has ideal characteristics for sensing in harsh, caustic, high pressure, high temperature applications and fouling. Its features (benefits) include: • High Selectivity (able to detect specific chemicals) • Glass Free (higher reliability) • Bio-Fouling Resistance (longer life) • Large Range (enabling new apps) • Lower Limits of Detection (enabling [...]
