openQCM Q-1

A new concept design  of Quartz Crystal Microbalance with dissipation monitoring, that takes into account the wider research needs. 

We designed the device into separate modules: a main electronic unit and a fluidic cell module. Starting from today, you will be able to independently modify one of the subsystems without the need to change the whole device.

One simple gesture to mount it

The main electronics case is composed of 2 elements produced in 3D printing. With an innovative slot locking system, 2 simple screws are sufficient to ensure  compactness and protection for the electronics. An ergonomic design ensures maximum handling for an instrument that was born to be portable.

One cell for all devices

The new openQCM fluidic cell module was born after more than three years of confrontation with the scientific community and is the synthesis of the most important needs we have experienced:


  • – pogo-pin sensor contacts; 
  • – multi quartz dimension compatibility;
  • – multi-frequency housing compatibility;
  • – fine regulation of O-ring; pressure;
  • – Integrated temperature sensor;
  • – magnetic backreaction to sealing;
