ProteinSimple today introduced the FluorChem R system as the next member of the FluorChem product family. The FluorChem R system is a fully integrated, multimode gel and Western blot imager with chemiluminescent, fluorescent, and infrared detection capabilities.
The FluorChem R system takes Western blot imaging to the next level by combining three key elements – application flexibility, sensitivity and ease-of-use. Its 8.3 megapixel CCD camera and simple 10.4 inch touch screen interface allow researchers to detect even the faintest band – and get crisp, clear images every time. Like the preceding FluorChem products, it is equipped with an on-board computer and intuitive browser-based Digital Darkroom acquisition and analysis software, so the FluorChem R system is ready to use right out the box.
"The FluorChem R system brings together three detection modes in a single instrument, making it the 'do all' instrument in the gel and blot imaging space today," commented John Proctor, Director of Marketing at ProteinSimple. "The multimode capability of the FluorChem R system will enable researchers to use a broad array of secondary antibodies and dyes without additional instruments or reagents; ultimately maximizing laboratory bench space."
