A limited number of matching fund grants are available to eligible academic institutions. The SURG program provides 40% of the matching funds from LI-COR Biosciences, with your institution providing the other 60%. Get the tools you need to take your teaching and research further with SURG.
Show your students how to document DNA gels, image ECL blots, and detect near-infrared fluorescent Westerns with this versatile imager. The Odyssey Fc SURG package includes an Odyssey Fc Imager with free onsite installation and training, a Windows® desktop computer, Image Studio™ software, and a Western blotting kit with your choice of blocking buffer, secondary antibodies, and membrane.
“It was a lot of hassle to do Western blots before we got the Odyssey Fc...I could never show the students what was being done because it was in the darkroom.”
Dr. Debra Martin, Saint Mary’s University of Minnesota
"Students actually use the Odyssey Fc Imager themselves...The instrument is simple enough to use, and once trained they can work independently.”
Dr. Rick Page, Miami University
