The UVP ChemStudio and UVP ChemStudio touch is essential to laboratories performing genomic and proteomic applications. No film is required for imaging. UVP ChemStudio series imagers are used for high sensitivity imaging of Western blots, fluorescent Westerns, immunoblots, protein blots, DNA gels, protein gels, blue light gels, colony plates and a wide range of stains and dyes. The UVP ChemStudio touch is a stand-alone, touch screen operated imager with a small footprint, which maximizes laboratory bench space. It is also available as an external computer operated system on the UVP ChemStudio for those laboratories with particular IT/computer requirements.
