Imager - Biorad V3 Western Blot

The BioRadV3 Chemidoc Imager allows for:

  • For in-gel protein imaging and quantitation, procedures (and protocols) have been developed and optimized using highly sensitive SYPRO-Ruby staining.  This includes staining, imaging and quantitation (including full-lane integration).  
  • For western blotting, 3 levels of sensitivity have been optimized.  High sensitivity, with quantitation, is state-of-the-art (>1000-fold over Licor imaging).  Imaging is rapid, with adjustable signal intensity, and integration.  Output data are  easily managed (TIFF files), with no need for system-specific software.  The costly need for film (often with multiple exposures) is also overcome.
