Sensor Development

The development of new sensors can be a challenging process at any stage—from research and development to production. Applications ranging from biomarker detection to gas sensing necessitate a substantial number of configurations for miniaturized sensors. Metrohm DropSens offers the largest selection of inexpensive, versatile screen-printed (SPE) and interdigitated (IE) electrodes for electrochemical analysis at the microvolume scale.

Not only will you find a robust offering of SPEs, but these electrodes can be customized, based on both dimensions and electrode material, giving you the option of a truly tailored solution for your application at any stage of your process.

Sometimes the hardest part of developing a sensor is building the perfect electrode. Metrohm DropSens can make this process easier with customized electrodes that can be tailored to your laboratory’s needs. Modified and unmodified electrodes can be tuned for your application’s requirements, whether size, electrode material, and/or substrate. Additionally, our flexible custom product manufacturing can expand to portable instruments, depending on the application. Metrohm DropSens will work hand-in-hand to create a configuration that is unique to your process.
