Do you want a platform that has a proven track record in the literature for publication-quality images?
Are you tired of having to process your gel or Western blot images in additional graphics software that’s not user-friendly? Are you frustrated with not getting the resolution you need for publishing? Stop trying to upscale your image resolution and take back that lost quality with an established FluorChem system!
Collecting data can take years; writing the manuscript, assembling the figures, and working through peer-review can drag on for months! FluorChem™ imagers come equipped with supercooled CCD camera and automated acquisition optics, plus an integrated computer and remote access for easy retrieval and review of images. Included AlphaView analysis software gives you the data analysis tools that are sure to streamline the journal submission and publication process for you.

So, where’s the proof? See for yourself.
FluorChem imagers have been used by researchers around the world in thousands of peer-reviewed publications, spanning all fields of life science research. Because seeing is believing, we’ve highlighted a few for you to check out the quality for yourself!
In a recent Nature Communications publication looking at adult muscle stem cells, Yue et al. shed more light on the signaling pathways responsible for perpetuating the reversible quiescent state adult stem cells assume when not responding to injury. Using the FluorChem R, they implicate Pten as a requisite for adult stem cell quiescence and acquire additional images of related pathway proteins like Akt, FoxO1 and Hes1 on Western blot membranes.
To provide structural insights and a better understanding of the RNA binding properties of Oskar (Osk) protein in Drosophila germ cell development, work published in the Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences (PNAS) utilizes FluorChem M for the visualization of both unlabeled RNA probes and fluorescein-labeled RNA gel electrophoretic mobility shift assay (EMSA) results.
In this Journal of Immunology publication, researchers at the University of Wisconsin School of Medicine and Public Health use the FluorChem Q to study the mechanisms that drive differential eosinophil activation. Their Western blotting efforts identify IL-3 to increase expression of multiple proteins and delineate the complex intracellular signaling pathways involved.
Gu et al. have used the FluorChem M to study the effect of lysophosphatidic acid (LPA) on the expression, secretion and activity of macrophage-derived matrix metalloproteinase-9 (MMP-9) in plasma samples from patients with acute myocardial infarct (AMI). This work was recently published in Frontiers in Physiology and elucidates the mechanism by which LPA regulates MMP-9 in macrophages.
Researchers at Yunnan University in China use the FluorChem E to detect chemiluminescent intensities from protein array membranes in this Scientific Reports publication, which screened various chemokines for their influential role in human pluripotent stem cell mobility and stemness.
