The Biorad Universal Hood II Gel Doc is an easy-to-use, high-performance system that captures images in real time, allowing you to more accurately position and focus on your sample. The Gel Doc system combines a compact darkroom, UV-transilluminator workstation, CCD camera, motorized zoom lens, and user-friendly Quantity One software to document and quantitate gels stained with ethidium bromide and other fluorophores. The iris, zoom, and focus of the lens can be manipulated either onscreen within Quantity One software or by the instrument control panel. With Biorad's intuitive software, images acquired with the Gel Doc can be rapidly optimized, annotated, analyzed, and printed.
The Bio-Rad ChemiDoc XRS System is Bio-Rad’s most advanced imaging system. The system is able to image chemiluminescent, fluorescent and colorimetric samples and comes complete with a compact darkroom, transilluminator and supercooled high resolution 1.44 megapixel CCD camera. The entire system is controlled by the provided Quantity One 1-D analysis software with additional controls on the compact darkroom to control focus, aperture and zoom. Consequently, the ChemiDoc XRS system is extremely flexible and can be used for imaging a diverse range of applications such as Western blotting, DNA/RNA gel electrophoresis, 2-D gel electrophoresis, densitometry, etc. The system is able to detect HRP and AP chemiluminescence, ethidium bromide, SYBR Green, green fluorescent protein, silver stain and Coomasie brilliant blue staining to name but a few that are frequently used with the above applications. The system features flat fielding technology which allows for superior uniformity and quantification. Flat-fielding is a technique that corrects for pixel-to-pixel variations by dividing the gain variations out of an image, thus flattening the relative response for each pixel.
Operation of the system is very simple. The gel or membrane is placed on the transilluminator, which is set into a drawer which can be moved in and out of the darkroom, facilitating placement of the gel or membrane. Once the gel or membrane is placed, it and the transilluminator are returned to the darkroom and the door closed. With the Epi-illumination switched on, the aperture, zoom and focus are adjusted using the touchpad on the darkroom and viewed on the computer monitor until the desired position, size and focus of the gel are achieved. To acquire the image, the appropriate light source for the gel or membrane is selected and the software is used to select an integration time. Using the Quantity One software, the image is frozen when a satisfactory image is acquired. The Quantity One 1-D image analysis software aids the user in obtaining the best images possible from the gel or membrane. The software is user-friendly and equipped with built-in quick guides and wizards to facilitate the optimization of images and printouts. The software is compatible with both Microsoft Windows and Macintosh platforms. The Quantity One 1-D software is used for analysis of 1-D electrophoresis gels, Western blotting membranes, Coomassie-stained SDS-PAGE gels, etc. whereas the PDQuest 2-D analysis software is also available and is intended to be used for comparative analysis where many 2-D gels are analyzed at once.
High-performance, fully automated imaging has made the AlphaImager HP our most popular platform. The system's application versatility not only includes a wide range of fluorescent and colorimetric applications, but can also be expanded to chemiluminescence as laboratory needs change.
High-content screening (HCS) or high-content analysis (HCA) requires an instrument designed to extract the maximum information from your sample in a robust and reproducible manner with the speed for high-throughput analysis. The entire Thermo Scientific portfolio of HCA instruments helps deliver on those parameters and includes:
Chemi Genius 2 Bio Imaging System
Using advanced electrically cooled SuperChemiNova CCD camera technology, the FluorChem provides real time display and the R.S.D.P. standard of resolution, sensitivity, dynamic range and performance. The FluorChem is ideal for chemiluminescence, fluorescence, and visible imaging applications.
How is this unit better than Alpha Imager 3400:
For low-light applications, such as chemiluminescence, a longer exposure time may be appropriate and it is best to go to the red ACQUIRE IMAGE button to directly acquire the image once the desired exposure time is set. Alternatively, if a good exposure time is unknown, try selecting Auto-Expose and using the super sensitivity selection. Auto-Expose will generate an image showing the signal intensity usually in less than 3 minutes. Afterwards, a different sensitivity (binning) mode can be selected to generate a better resolution image and the software will automatically calculate the new exposure time for you.
Includes Computer Loaded with Software
The FluorChem HD2 System provides a complete array of image acquisition modes for common fluorescent and chemiluminescent applications. The FluorChem HD2 System delivers higher sensitivity and a broader dynamic range than film can provide at similar exposure times. Captured images are saved digitally, making them easy to import into presentations and reports
Features for the Photometrics Cool SNAP K4:
Compare this against “Features of Gel Doc XRS+ system”:
The Mini Gel Tank is compatible with a variety of Novex mini gels, NuPAGE mini gels, and Bolt Bis-Tris Plus gels. Each Mini Gel Tank can accommodate up to two gels per run. The unique tank design enables convenient side-by-side gel loading and enhanced viewing during use. Optimized conditions using constant voltage allow for Bolt Bis-Tris Plus gels to be run in approximately 35 minutes. Run times may vary depending on buffer conditions and power supplies being used.
