  • Application Area:Quantification of Nucleic acids and Proteins

"Only one platform is enough for checking the concentrations of Nucleic acids, Proteins and peptides as well. And it shows high reproducibility for each quantification assay. Highly recommend DeNovix DS-11 for very quick and accurate measurements of DNA, RNA, Proteins and Peptides. I hope very soon DeNovix will come up with a fluorometer in same DS-11 machine for the detection of fluorescent dsDNA, ssDNA, and fluorescent protein."

Easy to use, best for new people in the field!
Rating: 4.7

  • Application Area:Quantification of Nucleic Acid

"Being a new laboratory technician, this DS-11 was the easiest instrument to use! It is very self explanatory and easy to understand. We have had no issues with false readings/no readings/technical difficulties. I have not explored all of the ways to use the DS-11, but for what is worth everything works great!"

  • Application Area:Quantification of nucleic acid

"This product is like a rocket in the pocket. It is smaller in size with the integrated processor and touch screen. No need to separate computers. Cuvette mode is cherry on the top. The user interface is like using a mobile phone. I love the diagnostic part. Users can track the calibration by themselves. I highly recommend this product."

Rating: 4.7

  • Application Area:NGS

"As a person who has used different kinds of micro volume spectrophotometers before, I can confidently say that the DS-11 is extremely reliable and comes at an attractive price point (when looking at comparative specs of competitor brands). It is plug and play and super intuitive to use. Given the current supply chain issues plaguing all industries, it was an added bonus (and a pleasant surprise) that the lead time for this instrument was 2 weeks from order placement – can’t beat that!!!"

Worthy competitor to the Nanodrop and outperforms it in every area.
Rating: 4.3

  • Application Area:Measure DNA / Protein concentration.

"A fantastic machine. The DS-11 FX+ is able to quickly measure DNA and protein concentration. Of course, the easy thing to do is to compare this to the ThermoFisher Nanodrop. The Nanodrop may be fast, but the DS-11 FX+ is even faster. The DS-11 FX+ blanks in a couple of seconds and gives sample concentration readings in one or two seconds. It also gives more precise readings (three decimals instead of one when measuring DNA concentration). The DS-11 FX+ also seems to be more accurate and consistent when giving protein concentration readings. Best of all, I have yet to see a broken column error or bubble error. My lab ordered one for everyone to use and now I am choosing this machine every time I need to quickly measure concentrations. One last comment that I have is I like how it comes in fun colors. We have the Fire Red color and it looks like a race car and I think it is fun."

"I'm mostly posting this review because I'm so delighted with how easy this spectrophotometer was to set up, get online, install updates and get users trained on it.

These instruments have been a huge improvement to the way we had to do things before.
Rating: 5.0

  • Application Area:We use them in our undergraduate biochemistry, cell biology, & analytical chemistry courses.

"The product is very easy to use and takes up very little space on the benchtop. We wanted to move from the Nanodrops and Ocean Optics we were using previously to one stand-alone system that would meet the needs of both our Life Science and Chemistry programs. Less reagents, less waste, and no cuvettes are also big pluses for us. Simple for the undergraduate students to use, everything is touch screen on a stand-alone platform. No more benchtop computers and wires getting in the way on already crowded benchtops."

"When implementing a new method, we struggled to determine best practices and appropriate settings for the machine. We were able to get in touch with one of their customer support technicians, Ben Capozzoli, and he was amazing!

Thanks to Ben, we were able to figure out a working protocol for our novel solution, and the machine is working as intended."

Great results, super easy to use, a must-have in every lab.
Rating: 5.0

  • Application Area:Quantify nucleic acids and proteins in small volumes

"An amazing product, very easy to use, and consumes very small volumes of the precious sample. Measurements are accurate and reproducible. The design and the user interface are pretty and modern (touch screen). Before we bought it we always went to other labs who already had it, so I think it's a necessity for every lab."

Mediocre results.
Rating: 4.7

  • Application Area:TEVsh OD600

"I have been using this device for a about a year now. GFP worked great with the OD600 micro volume but this time we are having problems using it for TEVsh. Gave negative numbers and when called for help they only asked for a copy of the data to tell us that it did not work. Kind of disappointing. Other than that, it works great."

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."

Rating: 4.7

  • Application Area:Assessing quality of isolated RNA and DNA

"The equipment is very good and it has good repeatability as I have rechecked the sample twice or thrice and the results are almost the same. Easy to operate and handling of the equipment is also very convenient. I think with this many specifications, it will be difficult to get similar equipment for the same price."

Great for quantifying DNA/RNA and has extra features.
Rating: 5.0

  • Application Area:Quantify DNA/RNA concentration

"Great spectrophotometer for quantifying DNA and RNA. Only 1 uL of solution is required, which helps save your sample. You can also export screenshots over wifi. It's like an iPad and a spectrophotometer in one."

Superb, cool instrument, User friendly like my phone.
Rating: 4.7

  • Application Area:DNA quantification of ginger leaf samples

"I like the instrument, the most user friendly instrument I have ever seen. DeNovix's spectrophotometer can not be compared with other spectrophotometer. Android system make this instrument so cool like our mobiles. I have checked many RNA and DNA samples, results are reproducible with a small variation only."

User friendly, precise, high-sensitivity and value for money.
Rating: 4.0

  • Application Area:miRNA quantification

"Our lab has recently purchased a DeNovix DS-11 spectrophotometer. I have used it for my miRNA quantification. It is a very simple and user friendly instrument. The best part is its sensitivity. It's a great value addition to our lab. The instrument has the android touch screen which makes it more user friendly and also trendy when compared to nanodrops from other companies. I think all labs should have this instrument."

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."
