AC1 Electrochemical sensor

Basic amperometric low cost three-electrode sensor with patented structure made by thick film technology.  

Dimensions: 25.4 x 7.26 x 0.63 mm

WE material: Au/Pt, Au, Pt, Ag, C

 

The sensor is formed on a corundum ceramic base. On to this surface the working, the reference and the auxiliary electrodes are applied. The working and the auxiliary electrodes are made of variety of materials. At the end of the sensor there is a contacting field which is connected with the active part by the silver conducting paths which are covered by a dielectric protection layer.

 

A bio-chemically active substance can be immobilised on the working electrode of the sensor to create a biosensor. All sensors can be equipped with heating and temperature sensing elements. Thermistor (must be calibrated) or Pt 1000 (the response corresponds to the ISO standard) is used as the temperature sensor.

 

 

We also offer:

  • working electrode made of polished gold (WE diameter 1 or 2 mm) – sensor type: AC1P.W*.R*, with homogenous surface with roughness less than 1 µm
  • working electrode made of a material of guaranteed purity of up to 99.99 % (WE diameter 2 mm) – sensor type: AC1.GP

We also offer activated graphite sensors on customer request.

See activation example below:

 

* Have a look at product cathegory Discounted SPEs – which include offer of Screen Printed Electrodes (SPEs) at a reduced Price from our AC1 line of Sensors. They are fully functional, but with visual defects or inconsistancies.

– ideal for use by students to gain handling experience and knowledge on SPEs and their uses
– ideal for initial experiments in research
