Click to View• High sensitivity 1.4 megapixel Cooled CCD camera for imaging faint bands. • 1360 x 1040 pixel resolution for resolving close spaced bands. • High dynamic range of >3 orders of magnitude for wider detection limits. • True 12 bit image data for displaying faint and bright bands in the same frame without bright bands saturated. • Hi speed Fire wire interface for image data transfer enables real time focus and preview on computer monitor. • Extensive analysis software for 1D gel analysis, lane matching, densitometry, colony counting, image measurements. • GLP (good laboratory practice) compliant reporting. Compact, light tight, ergonomically designed darkroom hood. Create high quality thermal prints on optional thermal printers. Expandable with optional software for 2D Gel , DNA sequencing, Image analysis, Comet analysis/ SCGE Image analysis

  Working Principles
Click to ViewGel documentation System consists of a UV light transilluminator, a hood, and a CCD camera. The hood restricts entry of any source of external light that allows clear capturing of image of gels/ELISA plates with the CCD camera using visible and ultra violet light.

  User Instructions
• DNA/RNA, protein gels • Blots, TLC plates Agarose, polyacrylamide. • Commasieve blue, silver stained, SYBR, SYPRO stained gels. • Autoradiographs, ELISA plates. • Southern, western, northern blots. • Densitometry
