Upland, CA - September, 2011 -- UVP, LLC announces the BioSpectrum® Imaging System is now configured with the new MegaCam 810 scientific grade CCD camera. Designed for use in a wide range of proteomics and genomics imaging research, this camera enables enhanced image capture with the dynamic 8.1 megapixel resolution and high sensitivity capabilities. The system captures not only fluorescence gel images; researchers can also be assured that the camera's sensitivity captures the most demanding chemiluminescent Western blots. The camera's efficient ultra-cooled technology permits capture of low light blot emissions.
The BioSpectrum's VisionWorks®LS software allows easy navigation with simple one-touch controls for dynamic capture. The automated configuration allows selection of multiple UV, white and blue light sources as well as control of the motorized platform and selection of emission filters. The emission filters include EtBr, SYBR Green and SYBR Gold filters as standard and are positioned in a motorized five-position filter tray. Additional filters are available. The system capabilities can be expanded to multiplexing and bioluminescence imaging by adding a BioLiteTM MultiSpectral Light Source which excites of a wide range of stains.
According to Mike Capps, UVP's Marketing Product Manager, "The new MegaCam 810 camera in combination with BioSpectrum darkroom provides a world class combination of functionality, ease of use and durability to withstand the precise requirements of complex laboratory studies. The system's automated functions, including camera and lens controls, lighting options and darkroom settings, make both gel and chemiluminescent imaging effortless."
"The BioSpectrum 810 Imaging System with the new MegaCam 810 camera supplies researchers with an easy to use system for quickly acquiring 'picture perfect' publication-ready images in chemiluminescence and fluorescence detection as well as colorimetric gel and blot documentation," states Alexander Waluszko, Vice President of Marketing and Sales for UVP, LLC.
