Quadra Impedance Spectroscopy

Quadra platform is a patented impedance spectroscopy solution suitable for both embedding and autonomous field applications. It is a compact impedance-mapping technology that can be used for creating portable connected devices or large-scale industrial measurement systems.

Quadra enables fast, real-time detection of changes in any object with electrical properties. The solution has existing applications in biomedicine and diagnostics, food technology as well as industrial process control.

Quadra platform

generates a binary waveform with real-time calculation of impedance. It is possible to select different sets of 15 spectrogram frequencies. The highest set, 1 kHz…349 kHz is suitable for applications from tissue and material structure mapping to detection of cells and coatings. The lowest set, 0.5 Hz … 195 Hz extends down to frequencies used for electrochemical applications.

Each application requires a specific front end and a specific type and arrangement of electrodes for excitation and response measurement with the object. Data processing in the host system enables visualisation, extracting information, modelling and classification.
