February 20, 2009, Lincoln, NE: The Journal of Cell Biology (JCB) is offering a new, browser-based service called DataViewer that allows readers to view original image data associated with published articles. Users are able to rescale images and adjust the intensity range of display, just as they would with their own image display software. The LI-COR .l2d format generated by the Odyssey Infrared Imaging System is one of the 27 file formats supported by JCB.
JCB makes all content available free of charge with access restricted to paid subscribers during the first six months following publication. More information on DataViewer click here.
The Odyssey Infrared Imaging System is uniquely equipped with two infrared channels for direct fluorescence detection with high sensitivity and low biological background fluorescence. The superior signal to noise ratio produced using near-infrared dyes produces results not previously possible with visible fluorescence-based imaging systems.
LI-COR Biosciences is a leading manufacturer of near-infrared imaging platforms, analysis software, and LI-COR IRDye® Infrared Dye reagents for quantitative Western Blotting, small animal imaging, and DNA fragment analysis. The company also offers accessories and reagents for other detection types.
LI-COR pioneered the development of near-infrared fluorescence detection systems for DNA sequencing and today provides systems for drug discovery, protein research, small animal imaging, and undergraduate training. LI-COR instruments for photosynthesis, carbon dioxide analysis and light measurement are recognized worldwide for standard-setting innovation in plant science research and environmental monitoring. Founded in 1971, the privately held company is based in Lincoln, Nebraska, with subsidiaries in Germany and the United Kingdom. LI-COR systems are used in over 100 countries and are supported by a global network of distributors.
