SUMMARY OF QCM 3000 – QUARTZ CRYSTAL MICROBALANCE WITH IMPEDANCE MEASUREMENT AND BIOSENSE 3 SOFTWARE INSTALATION AND TRAINING

NATO SfP project Graphene/polymer based sensors, G5244

The training was held at the FTM, Skopje, R.Macedonia
21-22 October 2018

Presented:
PPD: Prof.Dr. Jadranka Blazevska-Gilev, FTM, UKIM, Skopje, Macedonia
Young researchers: Dipl.eng.Marija Prosheva, Dipl.eng.Ana Trajcheva, Dipl.eng.Tajana Kostadinova
Others: Prof.Dr. Aleksandra Buzarovska and student Stephan Seraphimoski

In the frame of the training the following actions were performed:

I. Activities:
1. Installation of the instrument.
2. Training of young researchers to operate the instrument.
3. Training of young researchers to activate the software package BioSense 3 Software.
4. Testing the composite samples by test program.

In conclusion: QCM 3000 – Quartz crystal microbalance sensor with gas regulation system was successfully installed at TMF, Skopje. Young project researchers were educated about the capabilities of the instrument and its performances. Also the researchers were trained to work with the instrument. Therefore the instrument can be used for the experiments planned in the frame of this project.
