APRIL 7, 2017  (WILMINGTON, DE  USA)  The DeNovix DS11 FX+ spectrophotometer / fluorometer has been awarded the coveted Reviewers’ Choice Award for Best Life Science Product of the Year 2017 at a special ceremony held during the meeting of the American Association of Cancer Research in Washington D.C., USA.

Hosted by SelectScience®, the Scientists Choice Awards® recognize life science products that have made the greatest contribution to enabling scientists in their work. The Reviewers’ Choice Award for Life Science Product of the Year 2017 is given in recognition of the product most highly rated by scientists around the world based on criteria such as ease of use, after sales support and value for money. The DS-11 FX+ is a unique combination of sample microvolume spectrophotometer, cuvette absorbance and fluorometer that enables researchers to gain quick and accurate quantification of nucleic acids and proteins, robust sample quality control and perform a range of UV-Vis and fluorescence applications.

 DeNovix Inc. Business Director Kevin Kelley said ”It is a real honor to receive this award that reflects the experience of thousands of scientists around the world who use our products. The number of five star ratings we receive across all the review categories is testament to the dedication and experience of all members of the team we have here at DeNovix and their drive to support our customers.”

 DeNovix CEO Fred Kielhorn added, ”Our mission at DeNovix has always been to provide scientists with innovative products that accelerate their work while providing a user experience and level of support that exceeds their expectations. This award demonstrates that we have achieved this with the DS-11 Series. We look forward to sharing future innovations with the scientific community for years to come.”

 The DS-11 FX+ is a stand-alone instrument engineered for rapid and accurate UV-Vis and fluorometric analysis across a wide range of applications and industries. The system includes DeNovix’ custom Android™ operating software, Wi-Fi / Ethernet network connectivity and a glove-compatible HD touch screen. Each new instrument is calibrated for life, maintenance free and backed by an industry-leading three-year factory warranty.

 The primary applications for the instrument are UV-Vis measurements for nucleic acid and protein quantification, kinetic studies and microbial cell quantification. The intuitive interface helps users quickly create custom methods that may be defined and saved in password-protected accounts. Results are automatically stored and easily exported to e-mail, USB, network folders, network printers, LIMS, USB drives and label printers. IQ/OQ documentation and performance verification software is available to help achieve compliance in GLP/GMP environments.

Queensland University of Technology adopts DeNovix DS-11 for new teaching labs

DeNovix Inc. announce that QUT adopts the DS-11 UV-Vis Spectrophotometer for undergraduate teaching.

WILMINGTON, DE – January 7, 2016 – DeNovix Inc., a developer and manufacturer of life science instrumentation and assays for the life sciences announces Queensland University of Technology (QUT) has adopted the DS-11 UV-Vis Spectrophotometer as a key undergraduate teaching tool. QUT, based in Brisbane, Australia is globally recognised for excellence in teaching and state-of-the-art laboratory facilities.

“To equip students for the world of advanced research, we see access to cutting-edge instrumentation as vital to providing first-class training,” said Associate Professor Terry Walsh, Head School of Biomedical Sciences at QUT.

"As part of a large-scale refurbishment of our teaching labs in the Faculty of Health, we identified a UV-Vis spectrophotomer as a fundamentally important instrument for students to access.”

“We were very impressed with the ambition of QUT,” said Fred Kielhorn, CEO of DeNovix.

“In order to fill their demands for 81 spectrophotometers in their labs, the DS-11+ had to meet the demand for a high-performance, compact, standalone instrument that works in both microvolume and cuvette applications. During evaluation, it was clear that our custom Android™ platform allowed easy access to the data via USB or Wi-Fi and provided a familiar interface for students.

“Our company philosophy of providing tools designed by life scientists, for life scientists means that an intuitive user interface and easy access to data were key features in the design of the DS-11. Seeing QUT integrate this into an undergraduate teaching program tells us we got this right” Kielhorn continued.

The DS-11 rapidly quantifies 0.5 – 1.5 uL samples of nucleic acids and proteins. The stand-alone unit includes an Android™ based operating system that does not require a PC. The system features a glove compatible, high-resolution, 7” touch screen. Measurements are made using intuitive EasyApps® designed for the most common life science applications. The DS-11 is a full spectrum (190-840nm) UV-Vis spectrophotometer and measures the broadest concentration range of any microvolume spectrophotometer. The DS-11 Series is also available as a combined Spectrophotometer / Fluorometer.
