  • Application Area:Analysis of protein gels and western blots

"It is highly effective for the application. Furthermore, it is user friendly and with many available tools for the analysis of blots resulting in high quality images. The previous distributor in Egypt did a great job, I hope this support continues with the new distributor."

"This instrument is very valuable to our lab, it allows the capture of ethidium bromide gels and coomassie blue gels. The analyzing software is great. It allows the analysis of western blot (x-ray films) to perform densitometric analysis. We have been able to use this software with relative ease using the manual that accompanies it."
