Two sensors are available for use with Archimedes: the Hi-Q Micro and Nano sensors, which allow different sample volumes and are capable of detecting particles of different sizes and masses.

The Micro and Nano sensors are an integral part of Archimedes, providing a microfluidic channel embedded in a micro-cantilever, through which the sample to be measured is passed.
