I am not sure I understand all of this, but couldn't you use that
method for measurements in the future, to put just the sensor into the
measured environment and keep the circuit outside of it?
Or explore the possibility that there might be something wrong with
the circuit on the circuit board which is not wrong in the seemingly
identical circuit you have built on the solderless breadboard.
