Fluorescence Reveals Hidden Details in Flowers That Attract Pollinators

Amersham™ ImageQuant™ 800 Western blot imaging systems — Flexible imagers with automated features for sensitive, accurate chemiluminescence and fluorescence detection

The Amersham™ ImageQuant™ 800 imager allows high resolution imaging across the entire visible spectrum, from UV to infrared. Capture images across the full spectrum with a variety of dyes. The ImageQuant™ 800 system is equipped with six different types of light-emitting diodes (LEDs) and corresponding filters, making imaging easy for a wide variety of applications beyond chemiluminescence, such as:

    • red, green, and blue (RGB) fluorescence for Western blots
    • infrared (IR) long and IR short fluorescence
    • ultraviolet (UV) fluorescence for DNA stains
  • epi-white light for automatic color marker overlay and gel documentation
  • trans-white light for densitometry applications

The best gel and blot images without the guesswork using SNOW imaging mode

Using the SNOW (signal-to-noise optimization watch) automated imaging mode, detect more weak bands in your Western blot and achieve high sensitivity without compromising image quality.

  • Increase sensitivity by up to 2x more than current CCD imagers
  • Extend the dynamic range by avoiding saturation

The Amersham™ ImageQuant™ 800 system will automatically stop when the best possible image is acquired, eliminating the need to spend time optimizing exposure and capture settings.

Functional, yet flexible, design

Save space and easily integrate the Amersham™ ImageQuant™ 800 system into your operation with the new functional, yet flexible, design.

  • Small overall footprint with a 12.1” built-in touch screen and powerful mini external computer
  • Ability to connect to the network with ease and set up the external computer to meet your institution requirements

Remote access for image saving, system status, and scheduling with the included ImageQuant™ CONNECT software.

Image more than gels and Western blots

Ideal for multi-user environments, the Amersham™ ImageQuant™ 800 system can image multiple sample types, including multiwell plates and petri dishes. Special accessories, such as the NP lens, allow users to get artifact-free chemiluminescence images.

Resolve proteins that are close in molecular weight with ease

The high-resolution 8.3-megapixel camera in the Amersham™ ImageQuant™ 800 system is capable of resolving even the most closely spaced bands, allowing for accurate quantitation in critical applications. In the example shown, it was possible to resolve bands that were just 0.5 mm apart.
