All data captured using the DS-11 Series instruments is automatically saved to the onboard memory. Comprehensive export, archive and backup options are available and described here.
DS-11 Series instruments are calibrated for life and do not require routine checking. Although calibration is not required, tools are available to verify correct operation in your lab.
SmartPath Technology enables the DS-11 Series to measure ultra-high concentrations. In this technical note, the relationship between transmittance and absorbance are discussed in the context of the Beer-Lambert Law to explain how the industry-leading dynamic range of the DS-11 is achieved.
EasyApps is a custom platform working under a "sandboxed" security scheme. This technical note describes the measures in place to ensure the instruments running this platform are not susceptible to malware.
The DS-11 Series can be used for the quantification of fluorophores in addition to the nucleic acid or protein to which they are bound. Alexa Fluor 555 is a typical fluorophore used for these applications. Typical performance data and linearity are presented here.
The choice of measurement method for proteins depends on sample type, buffers used and the protein of interest. Colorimetric assays are commonly used for cell lysates and samples in buffers that interfere with direct quantification at 280nm. Common assays and results using microvolume analysis are presented in technical note 108.
