Cell Growth Quantifier (CGQ)

Biomass Monitoring in Shake Flasks

Biomass Monitoring in Shake Flasks

The CGQ is a sensor-based technology that offers highly parallelized, non-invasive online monitoring of biomass in shake flasks and other cultivation vessels. Our biomass sensors are easy to install under the shake flask and monitor the biomass through the glass or plastic wall by backscatter measurements. This enables you to follow the growth of your culture in real time and gather actionable insights.
