Great equipment with good value for the price.
Rating: 5.0

  • Application Area:Molecular biology laboratory

"The instrument is great for people that have restricted lab space and do not wish to buy multiple instruments. I used the DS-11 FX+ for quantifying DNA and RNA, and to determine the turbidity of bacterial cultures. It worked great! For turbidity though, it didn’t work as well in the microvolume mode, but it was great using cuvettes. I haven't had the opportunity to use the fluorometer yet, only tested it with the kit that comes with the instrument, but it seems to work fine."

Something you can depend on blindly and go ahead with your research.
Rating: 4.3

  • Application Area:Molecular characterizations of virus infecting pepper

"This instrument is very user friendly as it is coupled with android based applications. One can tap icons on the display and go ahead for quantification of DNA/RNA/Protein respectively. While performing tests, if you land on any errors, the instrument has an option to resolve the error on its own. This default setting ensures the user conducts their experiments without fear of ruining the instrument. We can save the data and retrieve it in excel format whenever it is required. This information saved in instrument can be mailed and develop the graphs for the same using other software available online. Or, you can just select the samples and tap of graph option which will develop the graphs on screen. These can be saved as JPEG screenshot and can be accessed. The accuracy and instant quantification makes this instrument a boon to researchers who struggle to get accurate and consistent results. The price of this instrument maybe costly but its worth having it."

"We really love the ability to get results by only using 1 microliter of liquid (1 microgram of protein) when before we had to waste at least 0.5 milligrams of protein ( 1 milliliter of liquid) to get absorbance results. It has saved us more times than we can count with quantitation of various liquid concentrations. We don't know how we survived before without it!"

Super fast and accurate. Easy for Android users.
Rating: 4.7

  • Application Area:OD mRNA and dsDNA

"This product is relatively easy to use. There are a couple of caveats. I like the Android system however I am an Android user. I could see an Apple user finding the interface confusing. It took us a little bit of trial and error to get the thumb drive working. Don't have a DYMO printer or a WIFI printer and setting up a networked printer seemed like a lot of work. The thumb drive export is perfect. It makes a .CSV file that opens easily and is easily manipulated in Excel. One thing to note is that only a FAT32 formatted drive will work. Rather than these couple of things the DS-11 is accurate and super fast two things we were missing in our cuvette spec."

State-of-the-art technology and design worth its money!
Rating: 4.7

  • Application Area:Measure nucleic acids with fluorometer and photometer, Bradford assay for proteins and OD

"Very sensitive measurement of nucleic acids with the photometer and fluorometer applications. I liked that there are many assays saved as default and I don't have to program a lot. We lovingly call our DS-11 FX+ DeNovix "iDrop", referred to the smooth design. It is easy to use and to find the application you need. And it is the only 3 in 1 device I know. This saved a lot of money."

"This instrument is very easy to use for multiple uses unlike other nanodrops. It can measure different amounts of fluids in cuvette, tube and as a drop too. There are various programs which can be used for protein estimation depending on the assay. The user interface of the machine is really nice. The auto run option of the machine makes sample processing really quick when you have multiple samples."

Unique results
Rating: 4.7

  • Application Area:Protein DNA RNA Peptides UV/Vis

"DS-11FX equipment is highly useful for the study of peptides, proteins, DNA, RNA. Measurement of absorbance and fluorescence spectroscopy is useful in the structure elucidation of organic molecules, the presence or absence of unsaturation, the presence of hetero atoms. From the location of peaks and combination of peaks, it can be concluded that whether the compound is saturated or unsaturated, hetero atoms are present or not etc. "

The best alternative to Nanodrop
Rating: 5.0

  • Application Area:Nucleotide quantification and analysis

"The unit is very easy to use, with an intuitive interface based on Android. It comes with many apps already installed for different assays, such as DNA and protein quantifications, and many more. It is much more useful that Nanodrop, as it has everything in the unit, and the report can be directly sent to you by e-mail (it has both ethernet and wi-fi connections). Measures seem very precise and apps are frequently updated."

Nice piece of kit, well designed and easy to use
Rating: 4.3

  • Application Area:Measure amount of DNA extracted

"We brought this machine to replace the NanoDrop which is getting on for 10 years old. We use the machine to measure the amount of DNA extracted and the amount of DNA labelled when processing arrays. We've found the DeNovix to be more reliable, easier to use and better designed for the future than the NanoDrop. It also doesn't require for it to be linked up to a PC in order to work. However we still have to try to print the results from the DeNovix"

Good instrument, maybe not worth premium if only needed for simple method.
Rating: 4.0

  • Application Area:Microbiology (OD600)

"Mostly easy to use. For OD600 measurements, the app was sometimes buggy (slow to open, would open and then crash). Measurements took about twice as long as other instruments. Blank and measure buttons are very close together, inexperienced users accidentally blanked samples instead of measuring. Auto-read function is fantastic, great for high volume. Lots of great functions, very versatile"

Overall, we are very satisfied with this instrument!
Rating: 4.7

  • 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."

Every molecular laboratory should have it!
Rating: 5.0

  • Application Area:Measuring DNA/RNA probes labelt and unlabelt, OD measurement (E.coli, yeast,...), Protein concentrat

"Very easy to use, the interface is kind of self-explanatory. Broad range of applications e.g. ss/dsDNA/RNA labeled and unlabeled, OD600 cell measurement,...), good reproducibility, easy to clean and super small, fits in everywhere (also in our very small lab). We had the opportunity to buy a half old year demo instrument for less price, but with the full two years warranty! and just this allowed us to buy such a nice device with our limited budget."

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."

I'm fully satisfied with the spectrophotomer, a life-saver for researcher!
Rating: 5.0

  • Application Area:Expression of protein in yeast system

"The spectrophotometer is actually what I'm looking for. I just need to use a very small volume of sample just to get an accurate result, which is life-saving step for researcher who has limited volume of sample. Not to mention that it only takes 2 seconds to show the result. The prize is actually affordable for an instrument that offer ease of use, very small volume of samples and speedy result. The small size is also helpful to carry it around whenever spectrophotometer is needed, without having to worry if transportation might affect the instrument's system."
