Advanced Wave Sensors (AWSensors for short) is a High-tech company that develops, produces, and markets high precision sensing instrumentation for basic research, pre-clinical research, and industrial applications. We also provide scientific advice and customized adaptations of all our products.
At the core of our sensing technology, commonly referred to as quartz crystal microbalance with dissipation measurement (QCMD), is a humble piezoelectric quartz resonator. Its properties (resonance frequency and quality factor) depend on the environment: mass of a thin layer or shape of particles adsorbed at the surface of the resonator, viscosity of the surrounding liquid, etc. More information can be found here and here.
AWSensors is working at the frontiers of QCMD-based sensing by designing high-frequency QCMD sensors and sensor arrays, necessary control electronics and algorithms, fluidics for handling minute sample volumes, and interfacial chemistry for specific analyte detection.
The company was founded by a group of researchers at the Polytechnic University of Valencia, Spain, where research into QCM instrumentation under liquid loading has been carried out for more than 20 years.
Our mission is to dare and innovate, to work at the frontiers of knowledge to provide our customers with the highest quality equipment, methods, and qualified support.
Our unique proprietary technology is suitable for a wide range of applications. We offer:
- The highest sensitivity and resolution in acoustic technology
- Versatility, working with different acoustic sensors
- Real time results
- Easy handling
