Bio-Rad Laboratories Inc. (NYSE: BIO and BIOb) today announced the launch of the ChemiDoc MP Digital Imaging System. The imager combines the industry’s best performance with ease of use and is ideal for researchers who need reliable, reproducible fluorescent western blotting data. The system offers high-resolution DNA and protein gel documentation features and its chemiluminescence detection sensitivity matches that of traditional X-ray film. The ChemiDoc MP System is a one platform solution that meets all researcher needs for blot and gel imaging.
More proteins can be measured on a single blot
Fluorescent imaging enables researchers to quantify multiple proteins in a single measurement, an advantage over chemiluminescent western blots that require stripping and reprobing or cutting membranes to measure different proteins. Also advantageous is obtaining more data from less sample, especially when researchers want to study different isoforms of proteins or evaluate expression and interaction in complex pathways.
