An absolute workhorse.
We bought this unit after relying on another lab's machine from a competitor for far too long. It's a workhorse and having it WiFi enabled is great. It's been a hit since day one and the service from our vendor has always been super.
Fast result and easy operation. Compact and handy.
Handy equipment with modern look. Easy to operate with android platform. Ease of standard curve preparation. Option of adjusting sample volume and standard DNA volume as per samples. Easy connectivity with WiFi and data storage facility.
Great product, easy, fast and accurate cell counting. High quality, easy cell counting and very fast. No need for extra tubes - we can just inject 10 ul.
Purchase this product!
This spectrophotometer is an excellent piece of lab equipment! It is easy to use and data is displayed clearly. There are also options to email/export data to your own computer. When performing assays, the UV-Vis functionality makes data collection a breeze!
These instruments have been a huge improvement to the way we had to do things before.
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.
Easy to use and appropriate for measurements for many samples.
It is useful for easily checking protein concentration. We are also using it for protein assays to determine the protein contents in cell cultures of human cells and yeast cells. Rapid response and easy use. Only a little sample is needed. High reproducibility for protein assays.
Absolutely love this instrument!
This one is a game-changer! If you haven't used one yet, you are missing out on a great equipment for your otherwise tedious and inaccurate cell counting. The FL method is by far the best way to do this. I couldn't be happier!
Highly recommend for quick and accurate counts. Very pleased with this cell counter! Compact for benchtop and easy to use with no consumables needed. Excellent customer service and guidance whenever required.
Great for quantifying DNA/RNA and has extra features.
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.
...Great Cell Counter!
CellDrop is a great cell counter! This cell counter replaced our older Countess Cell Counter and is easier to use and more accurate. We are a 20+ person lab and the CellDrop gets used often with no issues thus far. Highly recommend this product.
Great instrument and outstanding customer service!
The DeNovix DS-C has a small footprint which was necessary for our lab space. Upgrading the software regularly is simple to do and helps maintain the applications on the unit. After purchase customer service is some of the best I have ever experienced! I would highly recommend the DeNovix Spectrophotometers!
A must buy instrument for nucleic acid & protein estimation due to its sensitivity.
The instrument is very helpful to estimate DNA from processed and degraded samples which have a very low concentration in extraction, as it can measure DNA between 0.5 pg/µL and 4000 ng/µL. It is more sensitive and reproducible than its competitors in the market. It is very user-friendly and can provide results in 2 seconds. It can also quantify proteins so it is a must buy an instrument for any laboratory.
Good results and very easy to use.
Using DeNovix CellDrop for almost a year I have had the best experience with it - easy-to-use interface, high quality camera, lots of built-in applications, almost no maintenance and of course no need to use cartridges or slides. Highly recommend to anyone looking for a good and reliable automatic cell counter.
The instrument gives consistent results that are a huge help with my work!
The DS-11 FX+ has helped with making my work easier and faster. It can give good readings for much higher concentrations of peptides than other instruments I have used and is very accurate! The instrument also has a great user interface!
Very easy to use! Would recommend it!
The product was ready to use out of the box! That made it easy on me and I did not have to do any calibration! I would recommend buying this product.
It is very important to me to get the job done.
The product has unique accuracy and suitability to the job. Indeed, it is the most sensitive and precise device I've ever used in my laboratory.
Great little fluorometer and serves our purpose beautifully! I highly recommend.
This fluorometer was just what our laboratory needed! It is economical and very user friendly. Also, the DeNovix staff continues to support well after the purchase.
We had the chance of testing the DS-11 series spectrophotometer/fluorometer before purchasing it. The different people working with this equipment were really satisfied with its quality, reproducibility, and ease of use. Acquiring it was an easy decision. Also, really happy with the customer service.
CellDrop is a must in all cell culture labs!
CellDrop is so easy to use. I can count any type of cells in less then 30 seconds without the use of single use plastic. We save time, money and get more accurate counts, even with PBMCs.
Easy and fast.
An excellent machine that's quite straightforward to use while having a surprising number of features. It's easy to use and easy to clean. Can do brightfield, trypan blue, fluorescence, etc.
My favorite piece of lab equipment
Simple to use and accurate, reduces waste and has a small footprint. After sales service is excellent.

The Simmons Laboratory
The Simmons Laboratory research mission is to create new knowledge in the areas of cancer biology and immunology that positively impacts the health disparities affecting vulnerable populations in the US and abroad.
Glenn Simmons Jr., PhD has a background in HIV and cancer biology and uses molecular biology to explore research questions at the intersection of the bench and the bedside. He also is committed to mentoring the next generation of scientists, especially those from groups underrepresented in biomedicine.
Recently, Dr. Simmons published a paper in Oncology Letters, Vol. 20, Issue 5. His team used a DeNovix CellDrop Automated Cell Counter to observe the GFP signal in 786‑O cells, confirming protein expression prior to cell collection.
The Mehlenbacher Laboratory
Dr. Shawn Mehlenbacher is part of the Hazelnut Breeding and Genetics program at Oregon State University.
In a paper recently published in Tree Genetics & Genomes (2021) 17: 6, Hill et al. describe fine mapping of the locus that controls pollen-stigma incompatibility in hazelnut, including development of new simple sequence repeat and single nucleotide polymorphism markers. The S1 haplotype is from the resistant parent OSU 414.062 and the S3 haplotype is from the susceptible parent OSU 252.146.
The team used the DeNovix QFX Fluorometer in conjunction with the DeNovix dsDNA High Sensitivity Assay to quantify their extracted dsDNA prior to sequencing the parent genomes. These sequencing data were then used to develop polymorphic DNA markers and predict genes in the aligned sequences.
Brianna Stenger, PhD: The North Dakota State University Veterinary Diagnostic Laboratory (NDSU-VDL)
The North Dakota State University Veterinary Diagnostic Laboratory (NDSU-VDL) is an AAVLD accredited full service laboratory that is a member of the National Animal Health Laboratory Network (NAHLN). The DS-11 and FX module are currently used in the Molecular Diagnostics section and will also be used in the new Sequencing section that is under construction.
Brianna Stenger, PhD (pictured left), is the section head of Molecular Diagnostics section and the new Sequencing section, which is currently under construction. The Molecular Diagnostics section tests for around 50 different pathogens of small and large animals using traditional PCR and real-time PCR, and has been expanding to next-generation sequencing capabilities. A few pathogens include bovine respiratory viruses, Cryptosporidium parvum, Tritrichomonas foetus, Mycobacterium aviam subsp. paratuberculosis, multiple coronaviruses, Avian Influenza, West Nile Virus, ringworm, canine distemper, Toxoplasma gondii, canine parvovirus-2 and feline panleukopenia virus.
The DS-11 was initially used to evaluate the concentration and purity of samples that were sent out for Sanger sequencing; but with the addition of the FX module to handle fluorescence, the instrument is now multifunctional and used for quality control in sequencing protocols to keep sequencing in-house. Sequencing projects currently include full 16S, targeted ITS, WGS of bacteria, AMR detection, and SARS-CoV-2 in animal sample matrices.
