Dencytee Cell Density Sensors

Total cell density measurement by the Dencytee sensor is based on the optical density, the turbidity of a suspension at NIR wavelengths. All particles and molecules that scatter the NIR light will be detected and can be correlated to the total cell density measured offline. The Dencytee sensor increases the light intensity as turbidity rises leading to a wide measuring range.

Dencytee sensor principle

How does Dencytee work?

Dencytee measures the turbididty at NIR (near infra-red) wavelengths so it is insensitive to changes in media color. All particles that scatter light at 880 nm will be detected, including living and dead cells.


Accessories for Dencytee Sensors

A measuring loops consist of an Dencytee sensor and a pre-amplifier, which are factory calibrated. The Sensor Unit is connected to a Cell Density Controller and provides a variety of communication protocols, from analog 4-20 mA signal to digital OPC-XML-DA connection. Diverse accessories are available to complete the portfolio.
