Never miss a faint band again! Every aspect of the FluorChem™ E system is optimized for superior analysis of chemiluminescent Western blots.
Simplified touch screen control for effortless detection of chemiluminescent, colorimetric and UV fluorescent gels and blots.
Just choose your application, capture your image, then analyze your results!
With imaging speeds and dynamic range that surpasses film, crucial data are not lost due to under- or overexposure.
How Can FluorChem E 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 M and R also enable multiplex fluorescent imaging, letting you analyze overlapping 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. The FluorChem E and M can be upgraded to the R for ultimate flexibility.
I need to do analyses like densitometry and total protein normalization
