VWR® Imager gel documentation and analysis systems are available in configurations suitable for fluorescence and chemiluminescence applications. Both models are fitted with a digital CCD camera (3.8 or 4 MP) which utilises the latest USB technology. The standard system features a 12-bit CCD camera that can be software modified to 16-bit. 

Modular system can be tailored to meet specific user requirements
Automated PC control speeds up image capture and the analysis process
16-bit performance for very accurate gel data
Auto-locking door protects against accidental UV exposure, and large door opening provides easy access for gel positioning and viewing
Motor-driven optics and lighting options for easy system set-up and flexible imaging applications
These systems are computer controlled, with motor-driven lenses as standard in both systems. The darkroom, is completely light-tight and suitable for RGB and advanced chemiluminescent applications, has a robust, wide opening hinged door for easy access to the chamber, and electronic auto-door lock with security function to prevent interruption during long exposures. Functions such as camera settings, lens control, filter selection and lighting can all be set up from a PC (not supplied). In addition, user functions such as camera exposure, neutral fielding and extended dynamic range can also selected from the desktop. All these settings can be saved on one button in the user-defined configurations.

VWR® Imager systems incorporate advanced image capture software specifically developed to simplify the process of capturing gel images. VWR® Gel Documentation Image Capture Software is a fully automatic package that controls camera integration, exposure, lens and capture options with auto-focus configuration for precise focusing. VWR® Gel Documentation Software is an advanced, automated, analysis software that can rapidly analyse a gel from loading to output of results in a matter of seconds. Requiring minimal user training, VWR® Gel Documentation Software is able to handle a wide range of media including gels, plates, films and spot blots.

Using the VWR® Imager systems it is possible to produce images of electrophoresis gels stained with many fluorescent and colorimetric dyes, including: Coomassie® Blue, silver stain, ethidium bromide, SYBR® Gold, SYBR® Green, SYBR® Safe, GelStar®, SYPRO® Red, SYPRO® Ruby, SYPRO® Orange, Fluorescein, Rhodamine Red™, Texas Red™, Pro-Q® Diamond, Deep Purple™ or GFP plates. As new dyes are released we work to optimise their use with the VWR® Imager systems, so please ask your local VWR contact for updates.

Delivery information: The standard system includes a 3,8 MP 12-bit digital CCD camera (16-bit file depth), motorised zoom lens, and 7-position filter wheel. All systems include a cabinet, white epi-light (overhead), VWR® Gel Documentation Software and VWR® Gel Documentation Image Capture Software, cables and support software pack. Illumination options must be ordered separately.
