Learn about recent enhancements to Ocean Insight optical oxygen sensors including a streamlined probe for process environments, expanded feasibility testing options, and new software for NeoFox oxygen systems.

Thanks to advances in sensor materials and optoelectronics, Ocean Insight offers novel optical oxygen sensors for applications in biomedical and life sciences, environmental monitoring, food and beverage processing, pharmaceuticals and more. The principle of operation is to trap an oxygen-sensitive fluorophore in a sol-gel host matrix that is applied to the tip of a fiber or an adhesive membrane such as a patch.

Compared with electrochemical sensing techniques such as galvanic sensors, optical oxygen sensors can be made in small and customizable form factors, allow non-intrusive measurements, and do not consume the sample.
