Sensors integrated in bio-medical applications are required to have a small
size and extremely high accuracy (in micrograms). In DNA synthesis for instance,
bio-medical engineers would utilise Futek’s LSB200 miniature JR S-Beam load
cell for its precision and sensitive capacity range.
In this application, it is imperative that each dispenser releases an
exact amount of fluid to ensure accuracy in the DNA sequence. An LSB200 miniature
S-Beam JR load cell has been mounted to the base of each fluid dispenser to measure
down to the microgram of fluid as it exits the dispensing tube. Once the
allotted amount of fluid has been released from the dispenser, the valve will
close until it is time to perform another DNA sequence.
The LSB200 load cell works in conjunction with SENSIT Test and
Measurement Software and Futek’s USB Solutions to ensure precision and accuracy
in these microgram measurements.
Products in use: A miniature S-Beam JR (LSB200) load cell paired with instrumentation
(USB Solutions or IAA Series amplifier).
