The compact Sapphire Biomolecular Imager incorporates visible fluorescent and NIR scanning along with true chemiluminescent and white light imaging. It’s a true making it a true lab workhorse.
As scientists, we like to pride ourselves on objectively evaluating data before coming to any conclusions, and staying open to new ideas if they are better supported by new information. Purchasing a new piece of lab equipment should be no different, especially when it comes to instruments that we entrust to make measurements and record data for our critical studies.
Flexibility with Phosphor Imaging
Step away from the limitations of film-based autoradiography and get the wide dynamic range and high sensitivity of phosphor imaging-based detection.
Quantitative Fluorescence Imaging
Improve your quantitation with the ability to reliably measure multiple proteins in a single blot, from very weak to very strong bands.
Sensitivity with Chemiluminescence Imaging
Experience the speed and sensitivity of traditional film with 4-fold greater sensitivity and detection down to femtogram amounts of protein.
The next generation of laser scanning systems, the Sapphire FL delivers unmatched flexibility and performance for today’s demanding labs.
With more imaging modalities than any other instrument currently on the market, the Sapphire’s four solid state lasers and patent-pending three-detector system enables an incredibly wide range of applications. And the intuitive, easy-to-use software ensures a smooth acquisition and analysis experience for all users.
Our lab recently acquired a Sapphire FL Biomolecular Imager. This imager is a game-changer, and the analysis software is fantastic. Going from regularly using an imager built in the 90’s to a unit this modern is a substantial leap forward, but this overdue upgrade in machinery is not the sole reason for our excitement. Its sensitivity, resolution, and user-friendly UI speak volumes for the quality of the product and has made imaging an even more enjoyable part of our experiments. My colleagues and I are looking forward to using it for years to come… more
