  • Application Area:Analysis of RNA, ssDNA and dsDNA samples from variety of tissues and cell lines

"I have been a user of the old NanoDrop machine and other RNA/DNA plate reader platforms for the past decade. Ever since the purchase of this product it has been providing me with accurate, quick and reliable measurement for large number of samples at each occasion. The best part of this machine is the ease of use and user friendly android interface of it. It is truly the evolution of NonoDrop idea!"

DeNovix DS-11 was selected after extensive review of available equipment
Rating: 5.0

  • Application Area:Small volume spectrophotometer

"After an extensive survey of microvolume spectrophotometers available in the UK, my task as purchaser was made very easy because 100% of internal testers and responders votes for the DeNovix DS-11. I purchased 2 units for the campus (catering to about 80 scientists), and have heard excellent feedback from all users. It is interesting to note that before the equipment survey was undertaken, few users wanted any other unit than a Nanodrop One, but the ease of use, systematic calibration before each use, the availability of all programs on the screen and most importantly, the reproducibility of measurements with the DeNovix won them over."

  • Application Area:We often analyze the DNA and RNA content of tissue samples to detect fungal concentrations

"Our lab recently purchased this instrument, developed by your company, and found it at first glance to be compact, but is it really accurate and practical? After reading the instruction manual, I learned that the instrument can measure the concentration of DNA, RNA, protein and peptide absorbance can be measured, the concentration of fungi can be measured and so on. It combines a variety of functions and integration, and can be easily downloaded and transmitted. This instrument has a lot of software which can be used by different researchers, such as analyzing the absorbance of nucleic acid for kinetic analysis. It also has many small features, such as timing, can act as a calculator. When the data is not good, you can use self-test function. In actual use, we found that the accuracy of the measured values can meet the requirements of our experiments, and reproducibility is good. In addition, it can touch screen operation, do not need to connect the computer to use the software to operate, which greatly brings convenience to our experiment, these are the advantages of this instrument. We also found some problems in the process of using, hope that your company can make improvements, such as instrument card phenomenon occurs when measuring. In addition, we are a little worried, will not increase with the use of time, the sensitivity of the instrument will be reduced. We think the price is still acceptable, I hope these suggestions can make your company's products become better and better."

A must-have in a lab which needs to quantify low amounts of RNA
Rating: 5.0

  • Application Area:Determination of DNA or RNA concentration

"The instrument is very easy to handle, it can be used without further instruction. The measured DNA/RNA concentration turned out to be highly reproducible. Compared with other Nano spectrophotometers: 1µl is really sufficient, no problems with air bubbles are observed. The instrument is pretty small and thus does not need a lot space. It is a stand-alone instrument, you do not loose time to start a computer. It only takes seconds to switch it on and start measurement. Data can be easily transferred to an USB stick."

Small yet mighty!
Rating: 5.0

  • Application Area:Analyze nucleic acids, quantify proteins, measure absorbance in chemical solutions, determine OD600,

"I love this machine. The small size and easy-to-use touch screen are features that initially attracted me to this unit. My labs are small and full, so a compact multi-purpose instrument is a must. It is so light weight that I can easily move it around when needed. Although I haven't connected it to my network or to any printer, I like that it has these options and I may use them in the future. My only critique is that some of the fields are not well labeled on the 'Run' screen. It took me a few minutes to figure out where I type the name of my sample. Other than that, the machine was very easy to use and incredibly quick. No waiting around. I have used this machine for a week, and so far I have analyzed DNA and quantified protein in microvolume and my colleagues have used measured UV/Vis absorbance in cuvettes. So far so good."

"The most surprising thing is that DS-11 machine is small but the usefulness is huge. The interface is user-friendly, so it is very easy to control (even though I'm not a machine-friendly person). I measured OD for bacteria culture to make competent cells and the transformation efficiency is really excellent. I never failed cloning since I made the competent cell by using DS-11. DS-11 also gave reproducible and reliable results on DNA/RNA concentration. Great thanks!"

"Everyone who has used the Denovix DS-11 in our lab has commented positively on its ease of use. During our trial run, we compared its results to the NanoDrop we had been using and found the results to be in line and reproducible. The best features are the built in touch screen, intuitive interface, very small footprint and wifi capability. One thing that stood out tome about Denovix was the helpfulness and responsiveness of their support when needed. From customer service to technical support I always felt that I was a valued customer and that they truly wanted us to love the instrument. Considering the price of other comparable machines, I would certainly recommend the DS-11 to any lab in the market for a UV-vis spectrophotometer."

"This instrument was a big improvement compared with our old Nanodrop. It is very easy to use. We did have a couple of issues with the screen freezing , and software issues, but were sent loaners and repairs were made with little inconvenience. The only disappointment was that the instrument was supposed to be network ready so that data could be transferred to a networked file, but this was not the case. We even brought in your Tech people to talk with our IT techs, but it was determined that it wouldn't work. Users must use a flash drive to transfer data to their computers, which is not ideal."

  • Application Area:DNA preps, Coomassie assays, labeled protein, A280

"The DS-11+ has been a part of our lab since 2014 and is a true star of our lab. Other labs on our floor use it frequently due to its elegant, user-friendly design. Anytime that it slows or freezes, we just turn it off and on and it works fine again. We love the software/hardware updates that keep the machine relevant. The reports are very detailed - what I do is email the report, open in Excel, and keep the columns I want. It'd be nice if we could edit the report format on the unit, but I usually need to add stuff in Excel anyway so no big deal. Also, in Colorimetrics, I have to keep selecting cuvette size, Bradford assay, and standards. It would be nice if there were a setting file as you enter the app that save the settings. Then I could choose my default settings and start faster. I know I could switch accounts, but nobody uses accounts here and that's just more work. This is a great machine, thank you!"

"The instrument has equipped with the user-friendly interface and the manufacturer provides periodic updates on it. The result is highly reproducible and accurate even at low concentration of DNA. This instrument is almost maintenance free. the light source, xenon flash lamp, can last over 10 years and does not need to warm up before using. That makes me save time for warming up deuterium lamp in traditional UV-Vis."

  • Application Area:Protein and nucleic acid quantification, monitoring of cell culture, kinetics and assays

"The Denovix DS-11 is features an intuitive GUI that is easy to use. The measurements are accurate and correlate well with what I see when running samples on gels. My favourite feature of the spec is that it has both cuvette- and nano-readers, allowing me to obtain accurate measurements with minimal volumes. Another excellent feature of this unit is that it is very compact, taking up a small area on a lab bench. It is built with a touch-screen tablet so it does not require a PC like many other specs do. The manufacturer has promised software updates and new features over time, which can be delivered wireless as the spec connects to the internet. Overall a great spec that will see daily use in my lab for many years to come. Not that we've had to use it, but the manufacturer provided us with a 3-year warranty which is excellent post-purchase service as well."

  • Application Area:analyze DNA quantification

"We used the equipment to measure DNA concentration in PCR products. It is very easy to use and we have excellent results. As it requires only 1 ul sample so it is very helpful for us either we have a less volume of sample. Also, it takes very little space on a bench and doesn't require a computer to be attached. Overall it values for money."

  • Application Area:Quantification of DNA and protein

"Through the Android OS platform, Denovix has created a very easy to use instrument. Applications are intuitive and require little troubleshooting. We mainly use this machine to analyze both DNA and protein concentrations. Readings are very consistent adding to its trustworthy-ness. Our samples can be quite precious, with little in terms of volume, so only having to use 1ul is great."

  • Application Area:RNA, protein and DNA analysis

"I would highly recommend this product. After demoing multiple units for RNA and protein analysis, our lab decided to go with this product for multiple reasons. First, its reliability and consistency. Second, the everyday usability. Since it has a big touchscreen with android interface it’s a pleasure to work with. Third, it takes up little space on a bench and doesn't require a computer to be attached. The inclusion of wireless connectivity to print out the results makes it a great product to have. I believe it’s great value for money. "

DX-11 isn't the cheapest on the market but possibility for further expansion makes it worth it money."

"We originally saw the units as a demo for another department and quickly decided to find some money in our budget to purchase, not one but two of the Denovix systems. We love how they work. The touch screen function is so easy to use. We loved the idea of not needing a desktop computer to analyze our samples. We did purchase the printers with it, but have rarely used them. I have found that our students just take pictures of the screen with their smart phones. We also love all the apps that are with the units and the WiFi capabilities. I have already recommended the Denovix spectrophotometer to another lab and they received it about a month ago. We would definitely buy more and recommend them to anyone who is looking into purchasing a spectrophotometer."
