The DEN-600 Photometer is a compact, portable, rechargeable battery powered photometer
The device serves as an inexpensive alternative to a spectrophotometer and because it is battery powered and compact, it can be comfortably located in a biosafety cabinet, anaerobic chamber or quickly moved to another lab room. The vessel holding mechanism allows accommodating standard 10 mm path cuvettes, round bottom, conical vials or falcon tubes, enabling you to measure the absorbance and turbidity in Abs, OD or McF units. DEN-600 comprises of 600 nm wavelength optical system enables:
- OD600 method that estimated total number of cells
- McFarland (McF) turbidity measurement method
- Bradford protein assay method for protein concentration measurement.
USB connectivity and DEN software allow for data transfer, data processing and calculation, software calibration for Bradford protein assay method or a custom calibration for a specifically applicable vessel and custom turbidity standards.
