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.
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.
