The Odyssey Infrared Imaging System provides a flexible, multifunctional platform to accommodate a variety of application results fast. Direct infrared fluorescence detection on the Odyssey Infrared Imaging System provides an established standard for Western blot analysis that cannot be equaled with chemiluminescence and visible fluorescence detection. Near-infrared (NIR) fluorescence detection allows you to quantitate proteins over a much wider linear dynamic range than chemiluminescence can. Strong and weak bands are accurately detected on the same blot without the uncertainty and inconvenience of multiple exposures or time in the darkroom. The signal is stable and can be detected today or months later. The Odyssey System offers multiple applications in addition to quantitative Western blots: Protein (Coomassie) gel documentation DNA gel staining ELISA/FLISA EMSA/gel shift assays In-Cell Western™ assays In-Gel Western assays Northern and Southern blots On-Cell Western assays Protein arrays Reverse phase arrays Tissue section imaging Transcription factor assay Microwestern arrays RNAi screens Small animal imaging can also be performed on the Odyssey when using the MousePOD® accessory.
