Highly effective & efficient in vitro delivery of Cas9 RNP for genome editing in challenging cells

Microvolume Spec & Fluorometers - DeNovix

Cambridge Bioscience offers the Denovix range of microvolume spectrophotometers and fluorometers for UV-Vis and fluorescence quantification. Including the winner of the reviewers’ choice award for life sciences product of the year (SelectScience®) and the world's most sensitive microvolume spectrophotometer integrating 1µl UV-Vis, cuvette and fluorescence (DS-11 FX+), requiring no calibration and supplied with a 3 year warranty as standard, these intruments are a must for every molecular biologist.

What People Say About The DS-11 Systems
An excellent purchase & many happy customers

“The feedback on the DeNovix spectrophotometers is excellent, several people have reported how pleased they were with the reproducibility, which is so much better than with the nanodrop™ 1000 we previously had. All in all, an excellent purchase and many happy customers.”

SmartQC™ Technology
SmartQC™ monitors the complete measurement and quality control process on the DS-11 microvolume spectrophotometers.

SmartQC™ Features
• Sample contamination alerts
• Measurement surface cleaning monitor
• BridgeTesting® - ensures sample column is always formed
• SmartPath® - always calibrated with no routine maintenance
• Spectral analysis

SmartQC™ clearly flags samples that do not meet purity specifications with visual alert icons, providing detailed information regarding the possible reasons for the high or low value. SmartQC™ detects contaminants such as phenol, proteins, carbohydrates, guanidine, glycogen, nucleic acids and buffers. Highly flexible, SmartQC™ allows the user to define and save custom limits, to use established default values, or not to enforce any limits.


DS-11 SmartPath® with Bridge Testing®
Unlike other instruments using a 1.0 mm gap that must stretch the sample, potentially producing an unbridged sample, the DS-11 spectrophotometer uses a 0.5 mm path and compresses the sample during measurement. Unbridged condition is a common issue with other spectrophotometers and leads to erroneous measurements, without the user knowing about it.
With the SmartPath® algorithm with Bridge Testing® to detect unbridged condition in the dsDNA, ssDNA, RNA and Protein A280 apps, the DS-11 spectrophotometer software automatically compensates to ensure accurate results, with no user action required.
