NANOSENSORS Membrane-type Surface-stress Sensor (MSS) video uploaded

A new video about NANOSENSORS™ Membrane-type Surface-stress Sensors (MSS) has been uploaded on the NANOSENSORS™ youtube channel.

The NANOSENSORS™ MSS is a piezoresistive nanomechanical sensor: a silicon membrane platform supported with four beams with integrated piezoresistors. This MEMS sensor is very versatile and primarily designed for R&D in the fields of electronic nose/ odor sensing/ olfactory system. It can also be utilized for material assessment application and measurements of physical parameters in, for example, torque magnetometry.

NANOSENSORS introduces MSS-8RM – a readout module for membrane-type surface stress sensors (MSS)

The NANOSENSORS Membrane-type Surface-stress Sensor (MSS) is a device to detect specific components in gaseous phase with high sensitivity using a piezoresisitive nanomechanical sensor. This device shows great potential as a core component for electronic-nose (olfactory) systems utilized in e.g., medical, food, environment, safety and security fields.
Now NANOSENSORS™ introduces the MSS 8 Channel Readout Module (MSS-8RM), a basic electronic module to operate and to readout NANOSENSORS™ MSS, up to 8 sensors simultaneously, under a hardware configuration for electronic-nose sensing. MSS-8RM contains two air pumps and users can examine “self-prepared” MSS (compatible: SD-MSS-1K and SD-MSS-1K2G) under different gas flow conditions.

MSS-8RM is designed as simply as possible so that users can learn about a basic electronic-nose system and further improve the system performance. MSS-8RM does not include any data processing functions to distinguish one sample from the other. Users will obtain raw numerical data of the sensor responses under different conditions as final output.
