UPLAND, Calif., Oct. 25, 2011 — UVP LLC announces the release of the ChemiDoc-It TS2 imager. The integrated touch screen and user-friendly capture software simplify work flow for imaging of chemiluminescent, fluorescent, colorimetric and multiplex gels and blots. Users click the “live preview” button to immediately see an image sample. The exposure, aperture, zoom and focus can be adjusted using the touch-screen control panel. All settings are clearly displayed on the screen. The built-in computer creates a networkable, stand-alone system, allowing users to save images to a USB stick or to a remote computer for further analysis or documentation. Operators can optimize gel and chemiluminescent blot imaging with the sensitive 8.1-megapixel-resolution cooled CCD camera; can view low-light samples in the lighttight darkroom, creating an optimum environment for viewing chemiluminescent blots; and can select components as required for specific applications. The modular design allows selection of UV transilluminator, emission filters, LED white-light plate and UV modules. The imager combines a powerful, integrated touch-screen software interface into an easy-to-use plug-and-play unit. The image acquisition functions are presented in a straightforward and efficient work flow format.
