Amersham ImageQuant 800 systems are a sensitive and robust charge-coupled device (CCD) imagers for high-quality image capture in life science applications.
Exceptional sensitivity and image quality with SNOW detection mode
Eliminate guessing when choosing exposure times.
Functional yet flexible
The most compact of the Amersham Imager family, use your space efficiently with the system’s small footprint, external mini computer, and built-in large touchscreen.
Versatile with many life science applications from one CCD imager
Gain the ability to image across the full spectrum using a single system.
Ideal for multi-user labs
Access system remotely via ImageQuant CONNECT tool to share images and schedule experiments.
The best gel and blot images without the guesswork using SNOW imaging mode
Using the SNOW (signal-to-noise optimization watch) automated imaging mode, detect more weak bands in your Western blot and achieve high sensitivity without compromising image quality.
Increase sensitivity by up to 2x more than current CCD imagers
Extend the dynamic range by avoiding saturation
The ImageQuant 800 system will automatically stop when the best possible image is acquired, eliminating the need to spend time optimizing exposure and capture settings.
Capture images across the full spectrum with a variety of dyes
The ImageQuant 800 system is equipped with six different types of light-emitting diodes (LEDs) and corresponding filters, making imaging easy for a wide variety of applications beyond chemiluminescence, such as:
red, green, and blue (RGB) fluorescence for Western blots
infrared (IR) long and IR short fluorescence
ultraviolet (UV) fluorescence for DNA stains
epi-white light for automatic color marker overlay and gel documentation
trans-white light for densitometry applications
Functional, yet flexible, design
Save space and easily integrate the ImageQuant 800 system into your operation with the new functional, yet flexible, design.
Small overall footprint with a 12.1” built-in touch screen and powerful mini external computer
Ability to connect to the network with ease and set up the external computer to meet your institution requirements
Remote access for image saving, system status, and scheduling with the included ImageQuant CONNECT software.
Image more than gels and Western blots
Ideal for multi-user environments, the ImageQuant 800 system can image multiple sample types, including multiwell plates and petri dishes. Special accessories, such as the NP lens, allow users to get artifact-free chemiluminescence images.
Resolve proteins that are close in molecular weight with ease
The high-resolution 8.3-megapixel camera in the Amersham ImageQuant 800 system is capable of resolving even the most closely spaced bands, allowing for accurate quantitation in critical applications. In the example shown, it was possible to resolve bands that were just 0.5 mm apart.
