QSensors QSX 301 Gold

QSensors are developed and produced to provide you with stable, reliable and reproducible data. Full performance is ensured through extensive quality controls and guaranteed for one-time use according to the recommendations.


Sensor Specifications
Typically ships within < 1 week
Part Number QSX 301
Top coating material Gold (Au)
Surface roughness < 1 nm RMS
Maximum temperature 250 °C
Pre-cleaning of sensor A new sensor might be contaminated with hydrocarbons and dust. Pre-cleaning the surface will give more reproducible QCM-D results.
Protocol The procedure should be carried out under a fume hood, with proper protection (eye wear and gloves).

  1. UV/ozone treat for 10 minutes
  2. Heat a 5:1:1 mixture of milliQ water, ammonia (25 %) and hydrogen peroxide (30 %) to 75 °C, approx. 10 ml is sufficient
  3. Place the sensor in the heated solution for 5 minutes
  4. Rinse with milliQ water. It is important that the surfaces are kept wet after ammonium peroxide immersion until they are rinsed well with water
  5. Dry with nitrogen gas
  6. UV/ozone treat for 10 minutes
Usage QSensors are intended for one-time use only.
Storage Store in a cool, dry place out of light.
Shelf life Stable at least 18 months from package date in unopened package, see expiry date on package.
Chemical compatibility There is no guarantee that the coating will be stable under all experimental conditions.
