Easy to learn. Fast to use.
DS-11 instruments feature the most powerful and intuitive software of its type. Designed by life scientists, pre-installed EasyApps® and a breakthrough Android™ touchscreen interface delivers error-free operation and sample to data in under 4 seconds. Every instrument is ready to measure right out of the box – no PC set-up or software installation



DS-11+ Cuvette Mode
Enables up to 10mm pathlength measurements using standard quartz or disposable cuvettes extending the UV-Vis lower detectible limit. The built-in cuvette heater controls temperatures for Kinetics studies.

FluorometerConnect to Your Results.
Built-in Wi-Fi, Ethernet and USB allows easy export of data you want in the format you need. Email a csv or color jpg of your results, save data to LIMS or network drives, print results or graphs to network and label printers and more! 

Upgrade to Fluorescence
To take advantage of enhanced sensitivity and specificity, the DS-11 can be upgraded to add fluorescence capability with the addition of the FX module. Alternatively, the DS-11 FX Series integrates both microvolume, cuvette absorbance and fluorescence into one compact instrument.

The DS-11 and DS-11+ are available in four color choices. The optional FX Fluorescence Module enables any DS-11 to also function as a highly sensitive fluorometer.
