Custom Sensors & Technology
Custom Sensors & Technology was created in 1980 in the St. Louis area to provide solutions for customers who were in search of monitoring solutions in a wide variety of industries. CST started by supplying sample handling systems then providing oxygen sensors. The company expanded it's horizons to absorbance (color) monitors and received its first patent. From there CST branched out into the UV and NIR regions of the spectrum and began to develop a line of photometric transmitters as well as process accessories to develop customer specific sample systems and provide sensor integration into any industries’ process. Since the inception of the company CST has applied for and holds 8 patents.
Initial development of the sensors were for applications primarily found in the Food and Beverage industries as well as the chemical, pulp and paper, and oil and gas industries. Recently the focus of business development has shifted to include the biotech and pharmaceutical industries. The same technology applies to many applications, with a few changes to be made for industry or application specific requirements. With the experience of bridging so many different industries, Custom Sensors provides a fresh set of ideas and innovative technology.
Custom Sensors & Technology is a full service provider. With over 30 years of experience CST supplies the latest in front surface fluorescence sensing, photometric transmitters, fiber optic probes and flow cells, oxygen transmitters, sample handling systems, and services including: application engineering, commissioning and start-ups, product validation, factory acceptance testing, IOQ documentation, process stream GAP analysis, and in-house repair.
Custom Sensors & Technology specializes in custom solutions. Application engineering for each individual project on customer supplied or specified samples can be used to determine which of the CST analyzers and accessories provide a viable solution.
Another specialty is integrating CST technology to a customer's existing system; custom sample systems are available for any process integration. This service insures the success of the application. Each of CST's products is fully customizable to a customer's process. Material of construction, sealing material, optical material as well as path lengths and insertion lengths are determined by an individual customer's needs.
Custom Sensors & Technology works with the customer to provide a unique solution to any application. From application development work to product integration and every step in between Custom Sensors is available for support.
