openQCM is an open hardware project with Arduino/Teensy inside its heart.

It’s a scientific as much as a friendly device very quick and easy to use. Thanks to the integration of the most used micro-controller boards openQCM has unlimited extension possibilities for the Research

fall in love with the new openQCM features

truly scientific instruments

Although the openQCM are open source systems, they are proper scientific devices. We are researchers and we firstly build it for our needs. Every device is accurately tested

pogo-pin contacts

Electric interface with quartz sensors are guarantee by means high quality gold pogo-pins

high modularity

We re-design openQCM in order to obtain the maximum flexibility. Thanks to its modularity it would be easier to modify and implement the original features.

fully open hardware

openQCM is an open hardware device. Electronic, design, software are freely

multi sensor hosting

An innovative design to host different quartz frequencies and diameters. A sealing system to fine tuning the oring pressure on the quartz crystal surface

plug & play

All openQCM intruments are easy-to-use scientific tools. Just plug the device to your PC and you can start your measurements.

Why have we made it up?

We are firmly convinced that high quality research is not necessarily related to highly expensive proprietary products, characterized by closed-architecture.
