1D Gel Imaging Using Cy Dye Lighting Unit and Epi RGB LED Module
23 December 2015
This application note compares the epi RGB LED module with the Dyversity Cyanine (Cy) dye lighting unit in terms of specificity, sensitivity and dynamic range. The Cy fluorescent dye family of fluorophores is a popular choice for labeling proteins in both 1D and 2D gel applications to track biomolecules with high sensitivity and in a non-destructive manner. The Cy dye lighting unit comprises of a edge illuminator with Red, Green and Blue light capabilities, whilst the epi RGB LED module provides lighting from above with Red, Green and Blue lighting capabilities.
