Q-Sense Scientific Network

Q-Sense AB was founded in 1996 by a group of researchers at Applied Physics, Chalmers University of Technology in Gothenburg, Sweden where QCM related research had been going on since the 1970s. The research group discovered and patented (1995) a whole new way of extracting mass and viscosity parameters for surface analysis in liquid, based on the quartz crystal microbalance (QCM).

Q-Sense technology makes it possible to study how various molecules interact with different surfaces or with each other. Information about the mass of the bound molecules and how they adsorb or interact can be ascertained. To get real-time, structural information about the adsorption/interaction of e.g. proteins interacting with optional surface is truly unique and possible thanks to the so-called D-factor.
