The ChemStudio SA2 Imager is a stand-alone system, for publication quality imaging and quantitation, of Western blots, multiplex fluorescent westerns, immunoblots, protein blots, DNA gels, coomassie Blue, GelGreen, SYBR Green and other stains.
Automated image capture and enhancement is performed on the built-in, VisionWorks® touch software, with a large, 15.6 inch touch screen interface. The software features new, Compositing and Pseudocolor tools, for advanced multi-channel image capture and enhancement. The imager is modular and upgradeable, allowing the addition of accessories for maximizing imaging capabilities. Add an eLITE Light Source to support RGB, Near IR and other multiplex applications.
Analytik Jena’s imagers provide outstanding technical features, for maximum resolution and sensitivity. Customers can choose from two deeply cooled (-57⁰C) cameras, for low noise capture, in long exposure/low light applications. The new, 8.1 megapixel camera is configured with an f/0.95 lens, for fast and sensitive image capture. A new height adjustable tray is located inside the darkroom, for imaging blots closer to the lens. Filter selection is easy and automated in a five position filter wheel (EtBr filter included). Several uniform, high-intensity lighting options are available. Base UV lighting options include 1 UV (302nm) or Analytik Jena’s patented, 3™UV (254/302/365nm) technology. Transilluminator sizes range from 21x26cm to 25x26cm. Overhead white lighting is included, with optional UV and blue light.
Analytik Jena specializes in customer service and support. Imaging specialists provide onsite demos, installation, technical service and upgrades. A three-year manufacturer warranty is included with this system. AJ’s dedicated support teams are always available for customized technical and application support.
