Gel Documentation-System BioSpectrum

Imaging System for Chemiluminescence, Western Blot, Fluorescence and Colorimetric Applications

The BioSpectrum Imaging System is designed with automated software controls to simplify the imaging workflow.

Resolution
up to 8.1 Megapixels

Part Number: 115.9790

Powerful imaging system for numerous research applications

Researchers can select from a choice of high resolution, high sensitivity CCD cameras depending on their imaging applications. For example, the MegaCam 810 camera with dynamic 8.1 megapixel high resolution and high sensitivity capabilities captures fluorescent gel images and supplies superior sensitivity for low-light chemiluminescence applications. No film is required for chemiluminescent western blot imaging with the BioSpectrum.

Applications

  • Chemiluminescence
  • Western blot
  • Multiplex fluorescent western blots
  • Plant imaging
  • Fluorescence
  • Colorimetric
  • 2D Gels
  • GFP

Software interface:

  • Automates your research for easy, yet accurate and repeatable results
  • Controls the motorized zoom lens, epi and transillumination UV and white light, emission filter selection and system power
  • Allows selection of user-defined or default settings
  • Select from SYBR green (515 - 570 mm), SYBR gold (485 - 655 mm), EtBr (570 - 640 m) filters or from other added filters
  • Click on the epi and transillumination light sources
  • Set templates and user preferences for recurring experiments 

Transillumination:

  • Choose from a variety of transilluminators with selection of UV wavelenghts and filter sizes
  • Transilluminator is placed on easy access, roll out tray
  • LED white light plate supplies uniform white light illumination
  • To fluoresce samples in the 460 - 470 mm range, add the optional Visi-Blue plate on the transilluminator surface
  • To fluoresce samples in the 460 - 470 mm range, place the optional Visi-Blue Plate over the transilluminator surface

Chemiluminescent imaging:

  • The MegaCam 810, BioChemi 510, and OptiChemi 610 cameras are cooled CCD cameras recommended for chemiluminescent imaging
  • For western blot and other chemiluminescent blot applications, place blots on the removable chemi tray
  • For chemiluminescent applications, place the chemi tray on top of the white light plate for placement of blots
  • Adjust the height of the tray to specific, repeatable positions

VisonWorks LS image acquisition and analysis software:

VisionWorks LS image acquitition and analysis software can be configured with the system or ordered separately. This sophisticated package provides comprehensive tools for image capture and analysis of gels, plates and membranes as well as colony counting.
