The Amersham Imager 600 series is designed to enable capture and analysis of high-resolution digital images of protein and DNA samples in gels and membranes. This series includes multipurpose imagers for chemiluminescence, fluorescence, and colorimetric applications. The imagers are automated (to remove the need to perform various manual adjustments) and have a wide dynamic range (to allow weak and strong signals to be quantitated accurately at the same time). Images can be automatically corrected for both geometric and intensity distortion. The workflow can facilitate band quantitation, molecular weight determinations, and normalization. The software is controllable via a touchscreen. Results are presented in tabular and graphical formats.
