pH is one of the most important parameters of cell-culture and fermentation processing in the biotech industry. New technologies are emerging that warrant accurate measurement and improve durability even in high-temperature steam-sterilization processes.
The pH sensor from Applikon is constructed using FDA approved materials, like the non-toxic solid gel electrolyte. Furthermore this sensor has an internal pressure, which reduces cross contamination. The pH sensor is designed to withstand repeated sterilization cycles without failure.
