  • Application Area: Imaging Western Blots

"It’s about 20-30K aus dollars. It replaces the dark room. It is worth it because the ease of use and durability is outstanding. I have never had a problem with it. "

ImageQuant LAS 4000 Mini is a compact solution designed for sensitive digital imaging of Western, Northern, and Southern blots for the purposes of quantitation and documentation. Compared to ImageQuant LAS 4000, it offers identical sensitivity for chemiluminescent Amersham ECL Western blotting reagents, as well as documentation of colorimetrically-stained gels.

Key Features
•Exceptional sensitivity for quantitation of biomolecules labeled with chemiluminescent probes, and expandable to multifluorescent UV, visible, and IR imaging. Allows gel documentation of Coomassie and silver-stained samples
•Accurate quantitation of closely spaced bands in complex protein samples for gels and films up to 21 x 14 cm (25 x 25 cm using the optional lens). Low noise for longer exposure times and lower background, important for precise quantitation of very weak signals
•Wide linear dynamic range for precise quantitation of faint and dark bands over four orders of magnitude in the same image, avoiding time consuming multiple film exposures
•Distortion, dark frame, and flat frame corrections are applied to each imaging mode for optimal precision and uniform quantitation
•Sensitive detection of less than 40 pg of protein on a Western blot. Sensitivity may be increased by "binning" of up to 8 x 8 pixels and smoothing
•Chemiluminescent and colorimetric signals can be captured in the same image without changing the lens. Upgradeable with UV transillumination for documenting EtBr-stained gels
