Optical Density Scanner (Handheld)

Aber is an industry leader in the field of OD measurement instruments and Optical Biomass Sensor Systems.

The OPTURA PALM handheld optical density scanner / biomass sensor puts the power to quickly and easily take on the spot cell density readings in the palm of your hand. Measure cells growing inside your vessel without breaking the sterile barrier. Simply press the OPTURA PALM to your vessel and let ABER do the rest.

How the OPTURA PALM Works
The bio-reflectance sensor emits near-infrared (NIR) light from the sensor into the medium. This light is reflected by cells present in the medium and is returned to the detector on the sensor face. The detected light intensity is directly proportional to total cell density and can be easily calibrated to any familiar offline reading.
