System Replaces Film-based Western Blots
LI-COR Biosciences announces the launch of the C-DiGit Blot Scanner. C-DiGit Blot Scanner is a digital replacement for film-based chemiluminescent Western blots that eliminates the need for a traditional darkroom. The C-DiGit Blot Scanner does not require changes to existing protocols yet delivers film-quality chemiluminescent images. LI-COR Biosciences' patent-pending technology pairs quality chemiluminescent images with the versatility of a personal scanner. The scanner, which is approximately the size of a lab notebook, can be placed on a lab bench or carried to a personal workspace. A single image file from the C-DiGit Blot Scanner captures the full range of chemiluminescent data for that blot. Image display settings can be adjusted to render a wide range of different 'exposures' and do not alter or affect the raw data or signal intensities.
