ID Developer's Kit

When Your Culture System is Unique

Everything you need for real-time, non-invasive monitoring in one kit: optical sensors for pH and dissolved oxygen (DO), readers and software. Add your cell culture system and watch the data pour in. 

  • ID • Sensor pH
  • ID • Sensor DO
  • ID • Reader
  • ID • Converter
  • ID • Data Hub
Product Specification Sheet

Use with

  • Shake Flask
  • petri dish multi-well plate
  • Bioreactor Microvessel
  • Custom Bioreactor

How can I incorporate optical sensors in my custom cell / tissue / organ culture system?

The ID • Developer’s Kit is well-suited for a wide range of custom microbial and mammalian cell culture systems.

  • ID • Sensor pH and ID • Sensor DO can be as small as 4mm in diameter to fit even the smallest culture systems. Attach the sensor to the bottom inner surface of your culture vessel.
  • ID • Reader is placed below a flat glass or plastic surface within 1cm from the smallest sensor and can be further away for larger sensors. Sensor placement is parallel to ID • Reader.
  • ID • Data Hub software loaded onto your laptop collects data through the ID • Converter.


  • Real-time monitoring of pH and dissolved oxygen
  • Non-invasive and biocompatible
  • Single use, disposable
  • State-of-the-art fluorescence technology
  • High resolution and unmatched accuracy
  • Fast response time
  • Quick and easy setup
  • Durable reader design resistant to spills and harsh environments
  • Long sensor half-life
  • Up to 2 ID • Sensors per ID • Reader
  • Up to 4 ID • Readers per ID • Converter


  • Automatic patch type detection
  • Real-time monitoring of up to 8 sensors
  • pH and DO graphical display
  • Data acquisition
  • Review, save and export data
  • Programmable scan intervals

Watch what you can learn about your cell culture!
