WOODBRIDGE, Conn., June 9, 2011 — Carestream Molecular Imaging has announced the Gel Logic 4000 PRO, a fully automated luminescent, UV-fluorescent and radioisotopic imaging system for use by the life sciences research community. Designed for speed and sensitivity, it can image a wide range of sample formats such as gels (DNA/RNA/protein), membranes (Western, Southern, Northern blots), colony and microtiter plates.
The system can perform digital radiological imaging of in vitro samples for quantitative analysis of radiolabeled samples.
Features include a cooled 4.2-megapixel scientific-grade camera (−29 °C), an f/0.95 lens, LED lighting, 10 filter positions, and a motorized sample platform for up to 3× zoom and seven prefocused fields of view. The system offers integrated trans-UV, epi-white light, and trans-white light illumination for imaging of protein- and DNA-based gels.
Carestream Molecular Imaging software, including standard with all Gel Logic systems, offers full control over the motorized sample platform and camera system. Autofocusing, directed autoexposure and automated analysis features allow the end user to capture, analyze and quantify signal from perfectly exposed images in just a few clicks.
