Qosina, a global supplier of original equipment manufacturer single-use components to the medical and pharmaceutical industries, has partnered with Polestar Technologies, a developer of optical sensing technologies since 1993, specializing in the monitoring of oxygen, carbon dioxide and pH. Qosina is pleased to announce the addition of iDOT Single-Use Sensor Bag Ports from Polestar Technologies to its extensive portfolio.

These integrated Disposable Optical Transducer (iDOT) gamma-stable bag ports offer non-invasive monitoring and come pre-calibrated for plug-and-play use. Polestar’s iDOT sensor configuration allows for simple integration of pH and dissolved oxygen (DO) monitoring to single-use bags, including bioreactors. They feature a POE bag port with sensing film, using materials that meet USP Class VI requirements. These bag ports are designed to work with Polestar Technologies’ DSP series optical process monitoring products, where the bag port would attach to a Polestar fiber optic cable. All products are made in the U.S.

Qosina will market the iDOT bag ports to customers of all needs and sizes. Whether in R&D or full-scale production. Qosina’s ability to serve large and small customers, along with its high service levels, extensive product portfolio, sampling capabilities and technical expertise, will help fill an important supply chain and distribution role for Polestar Technologies.

Qosina is a one-stop source for single-use bioprocess components, with low minimum orders, a liberal sampling policy and bill of material kitting, all supported by regulatory documentation and backed by Qosina’s assurance of supply.
