The USHIO PiCOEXPLORER™model PAS-110 handheld photo absorption sensor utilizes patent pending, Silicone Optical Technology™ (SOT), a unique new concept designed to suppress optical scattering and reduce scattering light noise. As a new analytical tool, the PiCOEXPLORER dramatically improves the efficiency of experiments with only 3 operational steps and 3 seconds for measurements. The PAS-110 can be easily controlled by a smartphone or tablet mobile device; it allows quick concentration measurement and detection of proteins, heavy metals, endocrine disruptors, and DNA. The PiCOEXPLORER enables concentration measurement and analysis of a sample in an unopened PCR tube, and thus, does not require use of a pipette. In addition, it incorporates a communication function that allows smartphones or tablet mobile devices to display the measurement results as well as download them (including calibration curve). The PiCOEXPLORER can greatly reduce both the time and the labor required for measurement, thus making a great contribution to improvement of the measuring environment. .
