  • Application Area:Analysis of protein knockdown efficiency

  • Odyssey® Fc Imaging System

"With the Odyssey® Fc Imaging System, we are now able to determine our mutation specific knock down very precisely and highly reproducible on one blot. The sensitivity of the fluorescent labeled secondary antibodies is outstanding."

  • Application Area:Visualizing Western blots

  • Odyssey® Fc Imaging System

"This instrument is extremely easy to use and produces results very quickly. The visual results can be hit-or-miss. Sometimes the image is of impeccable quality, very high resolution, and other times it is grainy and unfocused. I don't know enough about how the image is captured to correct this. Overall I would recommend this product for visualizing Westerns."

  • Application Area:Cancer cell signaling pathways

  • Odyssey® Fc Imaging System

"I love this instrument - super easy to use for ECL or fluorescence. The data can be easily quantified and images adjusted. Everything is also in one place - data with exposure times (no more files of film). We also received excellent training and the support, whether for reagents or troubleshooting, is also great."

  • Application Area:Western blots and DNA gels

  • Odyssey® Fc Imaging System

"Super high quality results on Westerns. The images blow away ECL-film or HRP/AP color development on nitrocellulose. Directly compared to other (non-IR dye) competitors for linearity of signal detection. Odyssey was the only one that came close to accurately measuring 10-fold serial dilutions of a protein sample over 3 orders of magnitude. Quantitation is believable with this machine & IR dyes. IR dyes have very low background. Sloppy undergrads get beautiful results as long as they process the samples per protocol (stringy DNA will ruin any gel run) and clean the equipment after use (MeOH washes for the transfer sponges are important to do regularly). This machine should be a workhorse for any lab that's doing westerns on a daily basis. Best money I've ever spent on equipment. "

  • Application Area:quantitative Western blot analysis

  • Odyssey® Fc Imaging System

"I have used Odyssey products for 8 years and I have never had a problem with the equipment or the reagents from Li-Cor. Everything is of the highest quality and has made quantitative Western blot detection extremely easy and reliable. The equipment is very robust and I have yet to have a need for service. I can highly recommend the Odyssey Fc. "

  • Application Area:Western Blot and PCR Gel Imaging

  • Odyssey® Fc Imaging System

"The Li-Cor Odyssey Fc Imaging System is easy to use and the operation is self-explanatory. Two different wavelengths for western blot fluorescent dyes (680 and 800nm) and PCR gels dyed with gel red (detection 600 nm) are available. Gels and blots can be detected for 30 seconds, 2 minutes or 10 minutes. Quantitative analysis of the spots is fast and easy. Pictures can be exported as .jpeg .tiff or PNG with 150, 300 or 600dpi. The only negative is that the handling of the software could be based more on windows-handling (e.g. shortcuts)."

  • Application Area:Immunoblotting

  • Odyssey® Fc Imaging System

"The Odyssey Fc Imaging Station has worked really well for our group. It is easy to use and allows us to image our blots quickly. Although it took us a little while to figure out the best (and cheapest) blocking solution for our purposes, our blots look great and the IR dyes seem quite sensitive. We've even had instances where the IR dyes have been more sensitive than traditional ECL and film. We also really enjoy the ease of quantifying our bands with the Odyssey software. Overall, this was a great purchase for our lab, which routinely uses immunoblotting in our work. I would highly recommend this instrument to anyone looking to more accurately quantify their Westerns or streamline their Western blotting."

Description

The Odyssey Fc System is the only system that offers superior chemiluminescent detection and the benefits of infrared western blot detection.

The Odyssey Fc System allows your lab to combine the proven advantages of infrared fluorescence detection with simple, streamlined qualitative chemiluminescence detection on one instrument. It is a chemiluminescent imager and IR fluorescent imager in one!

The Odyssey Fc offers unique chemiluminescence advantages:
  • One touch acquisition every time: No need for multiple exposures
  • No blowouts and no saturation
  • Eliminate film and get out of the dark room forever

The Odyssey Fc also offers the following quantitative IR fluorescent western benefits:
