  • Application Area: Measuring intensity of western blot images

"Software was really helpful in all aspects, especially for measuring the intensity of western blot images, recommended for other colleagues as well."

  • Application Area:Analysis of phospho-signaling pathways (MAPK, STAT, mTOR)

"The software is pretty intuitive to use, which makes it quite easy. It helps me a lot to acquire robust data quickly, also considering the background (which is a bit of a problem when using imageJ, for instance). Adjustment of intensity allows for playing around with the signal to get the best quality without losing the pixel information."

  • Application Area:analyze protein concentration in samples using Western blot analysis

"I would definitely recommend this product. Image Studio Lite enabled me to extract and analyze data from almost every Western blot I conducted, even if the scan appeared useless at first. The different color channels and contrast settings were especially useful. One thing in the free version I would change is that the annotation of blot lanes was rather difficult. "

"I would appreciate this software more if the plate/grid key had more customizable settings. We constantly find ourselves spending more time adjusting grids than actual analysis. We hope your company will continue to work on the plate/grid analysis feature for future upgrades. "

  • Application Area:Analyze/Quant phospho proteins when induced by ligand as well as inhibition of that signal

"The one aspect I would change is the ability to edit shapes once placed on the image. It is very difficult to go back and select an image and adjust size. Sometime that feature works, most of the time it does not. I like the fact that the data can be easily exported to excel and being able to paste in sample names into the shape name while in the soft ware- makes tracking samples much easier when going back to an image weeks later."

"The software is very user friendly and we've had a tremendous amount of support from our local LI-COR representative. The free version of the software is extremely valuable as it allows us to analyze data on multiple computers outside of the room that houses our LI-COR imaging equipment. I would highly recommend this software to anyone. "

"The machine is really easy to use, and I really like the feature for quantifying the data right on the software. I would also like to say that the sensitivity is amazing, we only have to use a small amount of the antibody to image the westerns."

"I consistently get great results with Image Studio. I use it almost daily for analysis of my western blots at my desk. It is a robust piece of software that enables quick, accurate, and reliable quantization of my western blots. I encourage all of my coworkers and labmates to use the software, it makes quantifying your proteins so simple. "

"I have both the Lite and Full version of this software so I can comment on the utility of the Lite version vs. Full. All of the basic and essential functions in the full version are in the lite version so I highly recommend it. If you want to use this for WB analysis, quantification, and saving your images in a very easy to use program and organization system then this is a solid choice. "

  • Application Area:Analyze protein levels in the heart

"Easy to use and reliable results comparing to ImageJ. The product sales representative stopped by the lab to give a training which was very useful. The only issue I have is when dealing with difficult antibodies, i.e., background is high, it shows 'inf' due to some spot on the band or if the band quality is not good enough, which is tolerable by human eyes."

  • Application Area:Blot densitometry to monitor gene/protein knockdown and functional effects

"I do like Image Studio lite, however we have recently had some problems analyzing blots in which a few overexposed pixels were present in some bands. Image Studio lite refused to report density for these bands. When we took the images back to the LICOR machine software not only were the bands analyzed, no overexposed pixels were detected. Something seems off with this newer version because I hadn't had this problem with the old version."
