Non-contact turbidimeter for Shaking culture

OD-Monitor control unit ODBox-A

Code No.: 0066239-000

It is a control unit of OD-Monitor A & S.


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)


Realized to measure the rotating turbidity culture by our original technology.
This unit calculates the turbidity by numerically analyzed “the relation between movement and the penetration light in the sample while rotating in Erlenmeyer flask”.
Set the Erlenmeyer flask size and shaking speed at the measurement.

Data can be saved in USB memory
The measurement condition and OD value are saved by the text form in the flash memory of USB2.0 . (Some USB can not be used)
It alarms you when it reaches the set OD value
It alarms you by buzzer when it reaches the set OD value(Possible to set by each unit)
It can correct the gap of your spectrophotometer.
OD value may change by the measurement unit.
The correction function makes the gap of your spectrophotometer within 15%.
The measurement unit is connected up to eight sets.The printer is also connected.
Measurement up to eight sets(2CH x 4Line) are possible under same conditions. (Refer to the right graph) The result of measurement can be printed in thermal roll paper. The measuring unit and printer are connected to the back of the control unit.


Display of (OD) valueDisplay of converted values from transmitted light volume of infrared ray (950nm) to OD600 of E.coli bacteria
Measurement Range0.1 - 2.0(accuracy guarantee range 0.5 - 1.5)
Correction for biological species other than E. coli bacteria and gap from spectrophotometerEnter correction factors (0.01 - 2.55、initial value is 1.00)

(*1)Point = Total measurement time / Interval. The 360th point figure is to updated when it exceed 360 points.
(*2)The recommended cable is KRS-433XF07K made by SANWA SUPPLY and the recommended rollpaper printer is BL2-58NBJC made by SANEI DENKI corporation.
(*3)Some memory cannot be used with this unit even if it can be used with a personal computer.
(*4)If it reaches the target value, a buzzer may not immediately ring depending on setting of interval.
●ODSensor-S is sold separately.
