How Can FluorChem Help You?
I'm tired of doing multiple exposures with film to get the images I need
With a 5-log dynamic range enabled by the large, high-resolution CCD sensor in FluorChem imagers, you can detect faint bands and bright bands without oversaturating in a single exposure. And you get your data in minutes, with no waste at all.
My proteins are close in molecular weight, and I need to be able to differentiate between them on a single blot
The 8.3 megapixel CCD cameras in FluorChem imagers ensure that you'll get the best image quality and the resolution you need to do accurate analysis, and differentiate between bands that are close together. The FluorChem Q, M, and R also enable multiplex fluorescent imaging, letting you analyze overalapping proteins in the same blot.
I don't want anything complicated—I just want to see my proteins
Digital Darkroom software makes taking images super simple. Simply load the blot or gel, select a pre-programmed protocol on the touch-screen interface, and hit "Expose." The software automatically calculates and sets exposure and camera settings in order to acquire the best image. Once you have your image, analysis can be done on the spot in a matter of minutes. Digital Darkroom can even be accessed and controlled remotely, so you can review images and do analysis from your desk or even your phone.
We're doing a lot of different applications, and we don't want to have to buy multiple imagers
FluorChem imagers are versatile—the FluorChem R has true multi-mode capabilities, with UV fluorescence, white light, chemiluminescence, visible fluorescence, and infrared fluorescence imaging, all in one compact system. Cover all your application bases with one easy-to-use system.
I need to publish my results—how do I know I can get the quality images I need?
Our imagers have been published in over 20,000 publications worldwide. Our scientific-grade, high-resolution cameras ensure that you get great looking images that are perfect for publication.
I need to do analyses like densitometry and total protein normalization
AlphaView software, which comes with all AlphaImagers and FluorChem imagers, is packed with many advanced analysis features. From molecular weight analysis, lane profiling, and multiplex band analysis to colony counting and total protein normalization, AlphaView has everything you need for simple and complex applications.
