Typhoon™ FLA 9500
Typhoon FLA 9500 is a robust and versatile laser scanner that is ideally suited to multiuser environments. Biomolecular imaging applications include sensitive and quantitative measurements of Western blots, multiplex fluorescence, and radioisotopic labels by storage phosphor as well as digitization of colorimetric stains.
The system provides several imaging modes such as fluorescence, filmless autoradiography, and digitization of colorimetrically stained gels. For chemiluminescence detection of low abundance proteins the ImageQuant™ imager series is recommended. The system is optimized for differential protein expression studies and quantitative protein detection, e.g. multifluorescent Amersham™ ECL Plex™ imaging for precise quantitation of two or more proteins in the same Western blot.
Versatility: imaging of multifluorescent-, chemifluorescent-, and colorimetric samples
High resolution and quantitation: a pixel resolution of up to 10 µm and a linear signal response over five orders of magnitude provides precise quantitation in gels, blots, tissue sections, and arrays
High sample throughput: scanning area of 40 × 46 cm enables simultaneous imaging of up to 20 gels or blots, measuring 10 × 8 cm in size. This facilitates comparisons among blots, and reduces workload and waiting time
Flexibility: optimized performance for new applications by adapting the system with stages, detectors, filters and lasers
2-D DIGE imaging: simultaneously image two2-D DIGE gels for differential expression studies
Visible and infrared fluorescence imaging: optional near infrared excitation for imaging IRDye™ and other infrared dyes
