  • Easy to use, easy to clean, easy to sterilize
  • Download results to a PC or printer for convenient data storage and retrieval

The Ultrospec 10 Cell Density Meter measures the density of cells in suspension at 600 nm. Small, portable, and easy to use, the instrument can measure growth rates of E. coli, other bacteria, and yeast (it is not recommended for use with mammalian cell lines). The hand-held device can be easily employed in incubation cabinets, under anaerobic conditions, and in other areas in the laboratory where cells are cultured. Spillages can be easily wiped from the smooth surface, and the cell compartment area can be flushed with, for example, formaldehyde or ethylene oxide to sterilize it.

The Ultrospec 10 uses a 600 nm LED source in combination with an advanced fiber optic to obtain OD600 measurements, which are comparable to those obtained on a regular spectrophotometer. Measurements can be sent via a serial lead to a printer or can be downloaded to an appropriate program on a personal computer for analysis. Rechargeable batteries provide nearly one month of cord-free use.
