New Equipment in the Molecular Core

The Molecular Biology Core has been able to purchase a new imaging system! Please look over the FluorChemQ brochure from Alpha Innotech for detailed information. It is designed for quantitative Western blotting with chemiluminescence and fluorescence imaging, but it can be used for a variety of applications, including fluorescent DNA and protein gels (ethidium bromide stains, etc.), colorimetric protein gels, and colony plate imaging. In addition, it can accept multi-plex fluorescent westerns because it has a variety of emissions filters built in, so it can quantify more than one protein per gel and resolve
co-migrating proteins. It also has image capture software for ease of publication as well as record keeping and software for accurate quantification.
