Sensors, Monitors & Transducers

Handheld Optical Density Sensor uses non-invasive technology.

Used for directly measuring optical density (OD) through walls of shake flasks and other small vessels, OD Scanner eliminates need to open containers as well as labor, contamination risk, and inaccuracy associated with sampling and dilution. Measurement is reported within 3 sec after user points scanner into flask, only 1 cm of fluid is required to be present. Scanner directly reports optical...

Controls & Controllers

Biomass Monitor measures several microorganisms and cultures.

Able to respond linearly to biomass ranging from less than 0.1 to greater than 300 OD units, BugEye 200 performs automated, continuous, real-time OD (optical density) measurements of biomass for fermentation and cell culture applications. Suited for biopharmaceutical research, noninvasive monitor has sensor head that attaches to fermentor, and base unit that interfaces with included software,...
