Non-contact turbidimeter for Shaking culture
OD-Monitor OD-Monitor A＆S
The industry's first Non-contact turbidimeter that can measure the turbidity of sample at OD600 while shaking. Adopted among the hundreds of R&D institutions. Operated with Bioshaker (Incubator shaker) in combination.
Applications●Labor-saving acquisition of growth curve
●Background reduction by sampling
Down Load（Useful Information）General Catalog
Recorded dataOD BOX can record up to 360 points.
(Point=Total measured time ÷ Measurement interval)
The acquired data can be stored in a USB and output to PC In TXT format of CSV.
The turbidity is 0 at the start of measurement and display measured values.
It measures turbidity based on the size of E. coli, you need to correct the turbidity of targeted bacteria by spectrophotometer.
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).
