soniccatch, sonicwipe & sonicclean by usePAT optimise measurements in liquids in R&D and industrial environments
for enhanced process control.
We offer add-on devices for the improvement of in-line measurements in PAT (Process Analytical Technology) systems. They are compatible with a variety of sensors and can be designed and adapted to the specific needs and requirements of many fields of application. In order to facilitate the process of real-time measuring, our technology takes advantage of well-controlled ultrasonic fields for spatial particle manipulation in liquids.
Based on this, we provide products that have the ability to gather desired particles in specific areas of an ultrasound field thus forming a small (but concentrated) transient sample. This enables the retrieval of real-time data directly on those agglomerated particles, which provide a similar signal to that of sediments, or the de-populated area close by (solid vs. liquid signal).
Another feature of our devices is the ability to remove undesired aggregates from sensor-surfaces and their further maintenance regarding cleanness. Therefore, the implementation of our technology leads to an increase in the selectivity, stability and sensitivity of the whole data-requirement process (e.g. in continuous production lines), which is especially important for any data driven industry.

soniccatch & microplastics
microplastics is an interesting topic in our society. soniccatch enables in-line probes to analyse microplastic in liquids.

Enhanced ProcessControl for(Bio-)Processes
Improved Real-time –Process Monitoring and Control Setup
The IRAMOUSE project of usePAT and Siemens (HealthCall Wirtschaftsagentur Wien) aims at the generation of unique and qualified data from within the process, giving selective information about the medium, the microorganisms and their products.
Ultrasound fields are used to catch (soniccatch) cells directly at the focal point of a PAT probe, acting as an in-situ sample preparation and enabling the sensitive measurement of the microorganisms.
The multi-disciplinary team of usePAT sees itself as a "360° agency" for the improvement of in-line measurements in liquids using ultrasound. All members are experienced and technically skilled experts in the fields of ultrasonic & technology development as well as mechanical engineering, chemical analytic, programming, electronics, mechatronics and process engineering, process control, general physics as well business development and management.
