LI-COR Introduces the Odyssey® CLx Infrared Imaging System
November 2, 2011, Lincoln, NE: LI-COR® Biosciences announces the release of its Odyssey CLx Infrared Imaging System as the latest addition to its line of imaging systems. The Odyssey CLx features a new autoscan function that saves time and removes the need to re-image data to find the correct intensity. This new function eliminates image saturation and offers a dynamic range greater than six logs.
The Odyssey CLx uses the latest version of the LI-COR Image Studio software. It is an extremely simple and easy-to-use imaging software that simplifies new user training. Image Studio features an intuitive, application-driven ribbon interface.
"The new autoscan function offered by the CLx guarantees a complete dataset over more than six logs, allowing researchers to have increased limits of detection without the need to optimize settings," says Jeff Harford, LI-COR senior marketing product manager. "This means our customers can obtain the best image of their data in a single acquisition."
The Odyssey CLx is based on LI-COR's proven infrared technology that has become the established technology for sensitive and quantitative Western blot imaging. It is the most flexible and multifunctional infrared imager offered by LI-COR, supporting many applications, including quantitative Western blots, cell-based assays, protein arrays, small animal imaging, protein and nucleic acid, detection, and microwell assays.
