Polestar is a recognized leader in optical sensing technologies since 1993. We customize sensors to help solve the most challenging requirements across biopharmaceutical, medical, environmental, and the food and beverage industries.
Accurate and reliable measurement of O2, pH, and CO2 is paramount to the survival and propagation of most living organisms. Polestar’s rugged optical sensing technology is designed to perform in demanding applications. Polestar’s proprietary technology enables solutions for a variety of important applications that require the measurement and control of oxygen (O2), pH, and carbon dioxide (CO2), either dissolved or gas-phase.
The importance of water quality cannot be denied. From El Nino to algal blooms to eutrophication and hypoxia, it is increasingly necessary to understand, monitor, and remediate the oceanic environment. The health of our oceans, estuaries, streams, and rivers seriously impacts all of life. Polestar has been involved in providing rugged, accurate sensors for monitoring estuaries and rivers as well as for other water quality measurements including in fish hatcheries, reservoirs, and lakes.
Underwater Life Support
For over a decade, Polestar Technologies has been working with major dive rig manufacturers to allow for safer and more productive dives. Our patented sensors can also be incorporated into rebreathers for recreational use.
Food and Beverage
Oxygen has a profound effect on the flavor and quality of food and beverage products. Careful monitoring of oxygen (O2) and carbon dioxide (CO2) in the processing of these products is essential. Polestar’s optical sensing technology can accurately measure oxygen and carbon dioxide in headspace or dissolved in liquids as well as in situ measuring of pH.
