Tel: and

The CO8000 is an easy to use instrument dedicated to the measuring of the density of cells in suspension.

This hand held instrument has an integral battery allowing it to be taken to where the cell cultures are growing.

The cell density of the cultures can be measured and the results stored in the memory. The results are given in Absorbance Units (OD). Once all measurements are taken, the results can be viewed on the easy to read screen or the instrument can be connected to a PC or printer and the results downloaded. The CO8000 will accept a variety of cuvettes and tubes including 10, 12 and 16 mm diameter test tubes. This low maintenance instrument uses an indefinite life LED and no filters. With no warm up time, just switch it on and it's ready to use giving you results that are comparable to larger, more expensive spectrophotometers.


  • Single beam LED cell density meter measures OD at 600nm
  • Small, portable with rechargeable battery
  • Long lifetime LED source with little maintenance needed
  • Easy to use, clean and sterile
  • Stores up to 99 results to download later
