Carbon dioxide measurement in cell incubators

NDIR gas sensor for CO2 measurement in incubators for measuring 5 vol.-% CO2 in cell incubators. According to the recommandation of WHO heat sterilizable at 180 °C. The MicroSENS 180-HS  diffusion sensor is indispensable for controlling ideal cell and tissue growth. The sensor head is placed in the incubation chamber to measure the gas concentration in the cell culture environment. Based on IR absorption of the gas molecules the sensor determines the concentration of CO2.


  • IR dual-beam technology
  • Temperature and pressure compensated
  • Heat sterilizable at typ. 180 °C (maximum up to 190 °C)
  • Long service life
  • Humidity compensation

Quality inside

All specified core components and electronic modules are made by Micro-Hybrid. Temperature-resistant components reduce the negative influence of high temperatures and other ambient parameters on the service life.

Gas measurement In the spectral range from 2 μm to 12 μm up to the ppm range

MicroFLOW sensors were specially developed for high-quality NDIR gas analysis. In the spectral range from 2 μm to 12 μm, carbon dioxide, carbon monoxide, hydrocarbons and nitrous oxide can be reliably detected up to the ppm range with this new sensor platform. In order to be able to adapt gas analyses as flexibly as possible to individual measurement tasks, the individual components designed modularly. This resulted in a »modular system« in which the various photometric components such as detectors, emitters, measuring sample cell, etc. can be exchanged. Aluminium with bright gold coating and passivated stainless steel is used as the standard sample cell material. PEEK (polyetheretherketoe) is also available for special applications.


  • high stability
  • low detection limit
  • using high-performance light emitting diodes (IR-LED) and thermal micro radiators, which were adapted to the needs of gas measurement technology

Quality inside
