Carestream Molecular Imaging Offers New High Speed, Highly Sensitive, Multimodal Imaging System for In Vitro Applications
Published: May 17, 2011
With this system, imaging of blots and plate assays can now be conducted faster than ever before. Additionally, this new Gel Logic is capable of digital radiological imaging of in vitro samples for quantitative analysis of radiolabeled samples.
“Product evolution and technological innovation are hallmark characteristics for Carestream,” said John Dellisanti, President, Carestream Molecular Imaging. “Our new Gel Logic 4000 PRO is a perfect example of this - it offers the ability to image samples at extremely high resolution and sensitivities using the greatest number of imaging modalities available in the market. This gives researchers the ability to enhance their productivity and advance the pace of their research.”
Features include a cooled 4.2MP scientific grade camera (-29°C), f/0.95 lens, advanced LED lighting, 10 filter positions, and a motorized sample platform for up to 3x zoom and 7 pre-focused fields of view. This system offers integrated trans-UV, epi-white light, and trans-white light illumination for imaging of protein and DNA based gels.
Carestream Molecular Imaging software (included standard with all Gel Logic systems) offers full control over the motorized sample platform and camera system. Furthermore, auto-focusing, directed auto-exposure, and automated analysis features allow the end user to capture, analyze, and quantify signal from perfectly exposed images in just a few clicks.
The Gel Logic 4000 PRO will be introduced at Carestream booth #534 during the American Society for Microbiology (ASM) 111th General Meeting in New Orleans, LA, May 21-24.
