Pressure Sensing in Analytical Instrumentation – The Dead Volume Problem

This webinar discusses how choosing the right sensing components for Analytical Science Equipment can have significant effect on sample integrity and measurement repeatability. Attendees will learn about why reducing system internal volume and eliminating locations for contaminant build-up are critical to today’s Life Science consumer.

Time: 10 AM EST (7 AM PST)
Duration: 1 hour

Consumers of Analytical Science Equipment are demanding a wider range of solutions from their measurement equipment than ever before. As sample analysis becomes increasingly complex, manufacturers of Analytical Equipment face several challenges:

  • Achieving industry leading measurement capabilities to meet the wide and complex range of measurements that customers demand
  • Maximizing the capability of standard equipment designs to meet customer demand without overwhelming the consumer with myriad product options
  • Identifying areas where equipment design commonality can be leveraged to allow for faster and less costly engineering development that is more focused on the end user.

The combination of these three challenges creates difficult trade-offs for engineers and managers alike. In this webinar, we will discuss how attention to detail in sensor design and the selection of easily scalable sensing solutions can help equipment manufacturers achieve high measurement accuracy and reduce engineering development time around non-user-centric product functions. We will go through the details of what separates flow-thru sensors from other pressure sensing options, with examples of how they have helped one market leader in the high-pressure liquid chromatography space separate from the competition.

Our goal is to help attendees fully understand why reducing system internal volume and eliminating locations for contaminant build-up are critical to meeting the needs of today's analytical measurement consumers.

Key Take-Aways

  • Discover how flow-thru pressure sensors work and how they differ from traditional sensing options
  • Understand why Analytical Equipment manufacturers are switching to flow-thru style pressure sensors and how the use of flow-thru is advantageous to their design, their customers, and their business.
  • Learn about available pressure sensing techniques used in Analytical Science Equipment
