How to treat correct

We strongly recommend that any threaded PG 13.5 sensor is tighten with max 1 Nm into any SUB or SUF head plate. Same rules for CerCell and PerfuseCell products as well as for other brands.

Use your fingers if you are a man and the little plastic spanner tool if you are a woman! We are dealing with plastics and not stainless steel! It's only an O-ring that needs to be compressed slightly. Its not the wheel on a vehicle you need to fasten!

Well, we have seen several really bad uses of hand tools. Not correctly chosen tools will for sure both over-tighten and destroy the sensor as well as the bioreactor … so take your time! Never use the tools seen above!
