Industry Solutions

Polestar has a variety of sensing products that are ideal for many industries. For one, Polestar offers the only 3-in-1 monitoring system (the DSP4000) available in the market. This system allows for the accurate measurements of oxygen (O2), pH, and carbon dioxide (CO2) in one system, reducing the need for multiple monitors, reducing space at a user’s workstation, and lowering maintenance requirements, which ultimately reduces costs and eliminates the need to learn multiple systems. If only one measurement is needed, users can be assured that the Polestar optical sensing monitors are the best in the industry.

Polestar products are suitable for virtually any industry or an emerging industry like biofuels or regenerative medicine:

  • All DSP optical process monitors are inherently self-referencing, which eliminates the potential for measurement error arising from changes in sample turbidity, refractive index, viscosity, or color. This ensures stable, drift-free calibration and hence reliable measurements throughout the lifespan of a sensing element.
  • All monitors are designed for easy installation and operation. Pre-set calibration factors can be uploaded using a conventional USB flash drive, which can also be used for local storage of process run data.
  • Polestar’s sensors, whether incorporated into stainless steel probes, welded onto disposable bioprocess bags, or applied to shaker flasks, are solid-state, with no fragile membranes or filling solutions. Unlike electrodes, they exhibit no electromagnetic emissions and can be stored dry.
  • An important feature of Polestar probes is that they are not made of glass, so there is never cause for concern about breakage or contamination, a concern in almost any industry. We manufacture a variety of sensors and probes with our unique sensing technologies, all designed to meet different application needs, from disposable sensors for single use bioreactors (SUBs) to probes and sensors that can be used hundreds of times. Whether yours is a biopharma lab, a food production facility, or emerging industries like biofuels and regenerative medicine, Polestar is ready to help you improve your testing and manufacturing performance.
