How to quantify cell concentration with TURBIDI.T™?
Growing demands for quicker cell quantification methods push beyond traditional cell counting chambers, prompting innovative solutions that facilitate accurate counting while diminishing time. Turbidity, reflecting solution cloudiness in the presence of light scatterers, emerges as an effective means to accelerate cell quantification. In this application note, a strong correlation was established between turbidity (FTU) of a S. cerevisiae culture solution and cell numbers (cells/mL) counted with a conventional cell counting chamber...

How to monitor yeast growth in a bioreactor with TURBIDI.T™?
In the realm of bioengineering and biotechnology, cells serve as catalysts for the production of diverse valuable products, such as biofuels, pharmaceuticals, antibodies, industrial enzymes, and bio-based chemicals [1]. Within this context, yeast, a widely utilized microorganism, plays a pivotal role. Monitoring yeast growth is of utmost importance to ensure optimal conditions and productivity in biotechnological processes [2]. Traditionally, spectrophotometric analysis has been used to assess the optical density at 600 nm (OD600nm) by measuring the absorption of light by the yeast ...
