At the heart of the new imaging system is a CCD camera that offers higher throughput with significantly increased sensitivity and resolution. The camera can scan a dozen large-format (up to 27 cm × 33 cm) gels per hour, more than double the rate possible with the previous model. Offering a slightly wider dynamic range than its forerunner (the ProXPRESS), the ProXPRESS 2D can detect virtually any probe with emission spectra falling in the long-wavelength UV or visible ranges, including SPYRO and cyanine dyes, silver stain, and Coomassie™ Brilliant Blue.
The system supports fluorescence, luminescence, absorbance, and reflection detection. It cannot be...
