SENSOLUX® tray, stand-alone version DCS09Shaker tray SENSOLUX® stand alone version is an intelligent shaker tray with an integrated optical sensor system. It is applied for non-invasive monitoring of the pH value and the dissolved oxygen (DO) saturation during the cultivation of animal and human cells in shaking flasks in early process development.
- Non-invasive & optical measurement of pH and DO (dissolved oxygen)
- Online detection of crucial process parameters in shake flasks
- Fast & reproducible with precise measurements
- Four sizes of shake flasks: 125 ml, 250 ml, 500 ml and 1000 ml
- Easy & safe procedure, ready-to-use
- Dedicated software for monitoring & visualisation
- Compatible to standard incubation shakers
Shaker tray SENSOLUX® stand-alone version is an intelligent shaker tray with an integrated sensor system. It is used for monitoring pH value and dissolved oxygen (DO) saturation during cultivation of animal and human cells. The SENSOLUX® clamps ensure an exact positioning of the SENSOLUX® EF flasks and thus the right orientation for a precise measurement. According to the E-Flask size the clamps are available in 4 different sizes: 125 ml, 250 ml, 500 ml and 1000 ml. The SENSOLUX® Barcode Scanner provides an easy, fast and save transfer of the existing calibration codes from the different SENSOLUX® EF to the software SENSOLUX® control. It is a convenient and attractive alternative to the manual transfer method. The SENSOLUX® shaker tray comes with a dedicated software which enables the monitoring and visualization of the measured parameters in each flask. The operator will be guided through the workflow step by step. The flasks can be monitored individually or altogether as a group, which serves for greatest flexibility when setting up the experiment. An export function allows the data transfer for further analysis. SENSOLUX® control also provides the pH re-calibration function.
Nine measurement points for both pH and DO are integrated in the shaker tray. The tray has a size of 420 mm x 420 mm and is compatible with a broad range of standard incubation shakers including the CERTOMAT® shaker family by Sartorius Stedim Biotech.
The actual measurement is performed optically and non-invasively from outside of the SENSOLUX® EF. The sensor patches contain fluorescent dyes, which can be excited with light of a given wavelength. Optical fibres integrated in the shaker tray transmit light of a particular wavelength to the sensor patches; in turn they also transmit the luminescence response from the patches to a measuring amplifier. The characteristics and intensity of the light emitted is influenced by changes in the concentration of the parameters pH or DO, respectively.

SENSOLUX® Erlenmeyer Flasks
Single-use Erlenmeyer-Flasks SENSOLUX® EF are equipped with two pre-calibrated sensor patches - sensitive to the pH value and the dissolved oxygen saturation, respectively. The flasks are delivered sterile, single-packed and ready-to-use. Four different sizes are available: 125 ml, 250 ml, 500 ml and 1000 ml. Special shaker clamps ensure an exact positioning of the flasks on the shaker tray and thus a precise measurement of the parameters.
