    Non-contact turbidimeter for Shaking culture

    OD-Monitor OD-Monitor A&S

    Non-contact turbidimeter for Shaking culture Measuring OD wihtout touching contacting the flasks while cultivating.


    Cell density observation of bacterial in culturing
    Cell density observation of pathogenic bacteria
    Cell observation of bacillus in culturing under anaerobic conditions which gas concentration is important
    Cell density observation of bacteria with slow multiplication rate
    Cell density observation of floating mammals cell (scheduled)


    Saving of the turbidity measurement in culture with reasonable price
    It automatically and untouched measure turbidity of rotating culture, such as coliform bacillus, in 100/200/300/500ml glass Erlenmeyer flask (volume is 1/5 amount ±10%, no Sakaguchi and no baffle).
    Used with the shaker (rotating type)
    It is used with incubator shaker BR series or double shaker NR series.
    (The shaker of the other companies cannot be used) .
    Install the measurement unit to rack only.

    Eight channels in maximum, The measurement value is converted to OD600 of the spectrophotometer.
    It measure 8ch in maximum at the same time.
    The measurement value is converted into 600 nm of the spectrophotometer (our BPM-10Bio).
    It is possible to correct gap from the spectrophotometer.
    It alarms you when reached set OD by buzzer.
    The control unit displays the present value and target value.
    When exceeding target value, it is possible to alarm by buzzer.
    Data is saved to USB memory.
    Data is saved by text format to the flash memory of USB2.0 (some is not used).
    The edit with spreadsheet is possible.

    Shaking MethodRotating (It should shake on either of following conditions.)
    Shaking speed and shaking amplitude80 - 400rpm (Amplitude25mm)
    80 - 200rpm (Amplitude30/40mm)
    80 - 250rpm (Amplitude50mm) (*)
    * A set unit of shaking speed is 10rpm.
    (*) Set with ODBox-A at the beginning of measurement OD-Monitor is can be used only with TAITEC's incubator shaker BR series or double (rotary) shaker NR series (both are producing ). Be sure to check shaking amplitude when you measure and ground of ODBox-A and shaker for reducing electric noise.
