Grant Bio DEN-1 Densitometer

A compact and efficient benchtop densitometer for measuring turbidity of cell suspensions in a variety of life science applications.

The DEN-1 is designed and factory calibrated to measure turbidity in the range of 0.3 to 5.0 McFarland units with a small standard deviation. If required, it can deliver a wider measurement range (up to 15.0 McFarland units), but with a greater standard deviation.

Key Features

  Measurement range: 0.3 to 15.0 McFarland units
  Measurement time : 1 second
  Precision: 3%
  Standard deviation at 3.0 McF units: 3.0 0.1
  User calibration option

Typical applications include determining concentration of cells (bacterial and yeast cells) in the fermentation process, detecting the susceptibility of micro-organisms to antibiotics, identifying micro-organisms with various test systems, and measuring optical density at fixed wavelength.
