    Hello All,

    I'm currently designing a temperature control system for a bioreactor chamber and I'm heating the chamber using conductive glass. I'm not sure if I should use a thermocouple or another device that would be more effective. Whatever, temperature sensor, I use, it has to be submerged in water. Furthermore, I'm trying to figure out what circuit I should use and would appreciate some advice.

    Best,
    Vinividivici

    Since your sensor is in water, can we assume that the temperature being sensed is <100degC? If so, thermocouples are not the best sensors for that temperature range. I would look at Pt sensors (if great accuracy is needed) or even just a lowly Thermistor.

    The temperature will decide what sensor to use , over 100C pt sensor, thermocouple,under 100C Lm35, thermistor.
