openQCM is a highly sensitive microbalance with a wide range of applications in chemistry, biology and material science.

The sensor is a surface sensitive quartz crystal capable of measuring phenomena at molecular scale.
It works in vacuum, air and liquid environments.
openQCM is an open hardware project with Arduino inside its heart.
It’s a scientific as much as a friendly device very quick and easy to use.
openQCM is the first
fully open and customizable quartz crystal microbalance sharing the same ideas of the emergent open source hardware movement.
