Field of Application

The OUSBT66 NIR absorption sensor monitors cell growth, biomass processes, algae systems and crystallization processes. It provides you with reliable, precise measured values in real-time to optimize your process and your product yield. The sensor’s hygienic design is CIP/SIP resistant and allows autoclavation. Equipped with NIST-traceable and certified clip-on filters, OUSBT66 is outstandingly easy to calibrate and verify.

The OUSBT66 sensor measures the cell density, biomass and suspended solids in life sciences applications, such as:

  • Cell growth in bacterial fermentation
  • Mammalian cell culture applications
  • Biomass during fermentation processes
  • Monitoring of algae concentration
  • Monitoring of crystallization processes
  • Suspended solids measurement

OUSBT66 is suitable for laboratory, pilot scale and production fermenters and bioreactors.


  • Real-time measurement for optimized processes and product yields
  • Reliable, precise measured values with excellent laboratory correlation
  • Easy verification and calibration with NIST-traceable clip-on filters – no need for complex liquid calibrations
  • Hygienic stainless steel body and sapphire windows without seals or crevices
  • Suitable for CIP/SIP and autoclaving
  • Various path lengths and sensor lengths for perfect fit into every fermenter and bioreactor
  • PG 13.5 thread for standard assemblies or head plate installations
