Product details

Benefits & Characteristics of the LV5 sensor

  • Excellent long-term stability over a month in continuous measurement mode (lifetime varies depending on various factors, including the analyte concentration and buffer system (medium) amongst others)
  • Long shelf life (under appropriate environmental conditions) 
  • Gamma and beta sterilization compatible
  • Suitable for continuous and analyzer measurement modes
  • Fast response time (depends on the buffer system (medium))
  • Reference, counter and blank electrodes on-chip
  • Integrated flow cell (various volumes)
