German term or phrase: Querempfindlichkeit
I am translating the operating instructions for a chlorine sensor and in the section entitled 'Technische Daten', there is a subheading 'Querempfindlichkeit' containing the following information:
Brom, Iod, Ozon und ClO2 und andere Oxidationsmittel führen zu Messfehlern.
What is the English term for 'Querempfindlichkeit'?

cross sensitivity
Explanation:
Either with or without a hyphen. See these examples (among many):

The table below lists the cross sensitivity of electrochemical toxic sensors used in Biosystems portable gas detectors to gases other than their target gas. Depending on the nature of the reaction each gas has with the sensor, the effect can either decrease the signal (negative cross sensitivity) or increase the signal; (positive cross sensitivity). Each figure represents the reaction of the sensor to 100 ppm of gas, thus providing a percentage sensitivity to that gas relative to its target gas.

Below are some data on the cross-sensitivity of the CO sensor Model 4CF used in PGM-35 (ToxiRAE) and PGM-50 (MultiRAE) instruments. For the MultiRAE, data are also given for the 10.6 eV PID lamp (VOC sensor) both with and without the carbon impregnated foam (p/n 008-3006) in front of the CO sensor. This filter can be used to remove organic vapor cross-sensitivity. These filters should be stored sealed and replaced frequently, especially after exposure to high organic concentrations.
