Join the Competition for O2 Visualization in Research

Recently PreSens Precision Sensing introduced the completely new method of visualizing oxygen distribution two dimensionally with VisiSens to the market. Now it is time to broaden the already extensive range of applications even more. Therefore, all researches who need to measure and monitor oxygen for biological research and for life science research are invited to submit their scientific application and to compete for being one out of ten teams working with the VisiSens system for free.

“VisiSens demonstrates the many advantage of fluorescence sensing compared to potentiometric sensors and right now it is an unrivalled and fascinating solution for measuring oxygen distributions in all life science applications.” says Dr. H. Rolletschek, Leibniz-Institute of Plant Genetics and Crop Plant Research in Gatersleben, Germany. This is just one of several very affirmative feedbacks given by customers that motivated PreSens Precision Sensing to invite all different types of researchers to benefit from the advantages of VisiSens with their application in a competition (

A scientific committee will choose the ten most promising applications out of all entries and those teams will get the system for a 2-months trial period for free. During this time they will measure and create a time-lapse movie with the systems’ software. Those videos will then be valued by the committee and the three most convincing applications will win a price worth up to € 7,000 and be presented on the companys’ website. These pictures show the oxygen consumption of a rose leave, recorded as time series during a dark phase.

VisiSens serves its users as instead of measuring a multitude of biomarkers it allows to receive a precise oxygen distribution by one single measurement. It is also very budget-friendly and as no special introduction is needed, a team of researchers can involve students or supporting staff in their work which will lead to quick and solid results. This also allows to do research work which was so far impossible to do as the effort was too high or a mobile analyte system was missing.
