The ChemStudio product line has been designed for a wide range of imaging applications. ChemStudio can be used to meet countless BioImaging needs, both in the fields of proteomics and genomics.
When operated with VisionWorksLS software, automated image acquisition and analysis can be realized. In addition to comprehensive image acquisition features, the software provides extensive and detailed image analysis tools, including 1D, area density and colony counting capabilities. Depending on system configuration, usages range from simple gel documentation to advanced, multispectral and multifunctional imaging. Significant applications include high-resolution detection of chemiluminescence, fluorescence and colorimetric samples.
In order to meet the requirements for recording different types of signals, a set of scientific-grade, cooled CCD-Cameras with resolutions of up to 8.1 MP is available. The cameras are combined with a variety of high-quality lenses, either with fixed focal length or zoom function. Moreover, the integrated Peltier cooling is essential for detection of low light chemiluminescence signals, e.g. for Northern, Western and Southern Blots. When compared directly to other detection methods, cooled CCD-Cameras are superior in terms of sensitivity, accuracy, dynamic range, speed and ease of handling.ChemStudio Product Line Features:
