At ZP we are super interested in many types of biosensors including pH sensor. At ZP we appreciate that pH sensors have not changed in 40 years, so at ZP we are leading the revolution in updating and upgrading pH sensors both for discreet and continuous monitoring.
The technology at ZP offers pH sensors at a few cents per sensors when purchased and used in volume.
In this note we describe the continuous monitoring of the pH levels of the media within a bioreactor, specifically we have used E. coli DH5α which has been cultured in lysogeny broth (LB) for 24-48 hours. During this time the sensor was
recording the potential/pH of the solution by OCP. The sensor was tested for pH sensitivity using the standard pH4, pH7 and pH10 reference solutions at 10 minute intervals both before and after the microbiological test to ﬁrstly ensure that the sensor was pH sensitive before the test began, and secondly to assess what impact (if any) the exposure to the
bacterial solution had upon the sensors pH sensitive properties.
