Laxco introduces a revolutionizing new concept in Cell Density Meters. 

The DSM series brings you, for the first time, the ability to measure a cell’s density in micro-volumes and/or cuvettes and tubes. The DSM is a low-cost portable unit that can be used in small restricted spaces such as incubation cabinets or under anaerobic conditions. Its internal rechargeable battery allows it to be conveniently used anywhere in the lab or taken to areas where cultures are grown.

The DSM series 600nm wavelength light beam is absorbed by the cells as it passes through, and outputted as a percentage of transmission (%T) or absorption (Abs). Test yeast, E. Coli and bacteria cultures (not recommended for mammalian cells) in suspension easily and accurately. The DSM internal memory will store up to 1000 data points, and can be upload in excel format to PC software (Part # DSM-SWL-J9004, sold separately).
