Perfect tool for western blot - chemiluminesce detection.
Rating: 4.7

  • Application Area:Bone marrow stem cell-insulin response - semiquantitative analysis

"Chemidoc is the best image system I have worked with for western blot with chemiluminesce detection. It is user friendly, comes with a vast range of possibilities to better analyse my membranes and paired with ImageLab it represents the perfect tool to carry out my analysis."

Very versatile machine with more options than anticipated.
Rating: 4.3

  • Application Area:Protein and DNA gel pictures, including fluorescent labels

"Pictures of fluorescent dyes are similar in quality to the Typhoon. Many pre-programed dyes are available. Both user and admin accounts can be set up to prevent users from messing up the system. Had difficulties with getting the system onto the the internal network because of restraints on both Bio-Rad's side and our side (IT support)."

Product down. Cannot afford. Will buy another company's device.
Rating: 3.7

  • Application Area:Tissue samples

"Cannot get parts for the obvious one when they break. We checked the machine, dismantled it and found broken filter assembly. They want to come out and replace it for $4000.00 dollars for a 600.00 part we could install ourselves."
