Technology that helps you do more, see more, and discover more
Switch to the imager that lets you make new discoveries in more channels. Streamline your ECL protocol, or perform two-color multiplex detection using near-infrared fluorescence. Either way, you get clear images with low background.
Document your agarose and PAGE gels stained with Ethidium Bromide, SYBR® Safe, SYBR® Green I, and many other popular DNA stains. Disposable imaging trays prevent contamination, for more confidence in the quality of your results – without the need for harmful UV light.
This simple, intuitive interface puts high-quality data at your fingertips with a few simple clicks. No more manual camera adjustments or multiple exposures. Image Studio can save your settings, so you can just click once to capture an image the next time you start the software.
Ready to see what you discovered? Streamline your analysis with easy-to-adjust image view tools and convenient data analysis. Pre-set options to export images for publication or digital media let you present your findings faster.
Other digital imagers modify images after capture to correct for non-uniform image brightness or to artificially improve the exposure.
Other imagers manipulate images post-capture by:
On the other hand, the Odyssey Fc’s patented optics deliver uniform, low background images every time with no post-capture image manipulation. With the Odyssey Fc, you can be confident you have the most accurate, reproducible data.
Unsupported image editing and analysis software programs can compromise the integrity of your data, as they are not intended for Western blot image analysis. Image Studio™ Software never alters raw experimental data and is custom-built for Western blots. Always use Image Studio or Image Studio Lite software for image adjustments, quantitation, and annotation of data acquired on LI-COR imaging systems. See other best practices for image analysis.
Uniform laser illumination from the FieldBrite XT2 optical system powers the Odyssey Fc to capture uniform, low-background images every time. In fact, the field of view throughout the Odyssey Fc varies less than 3%. Get the accurate image you need without the artificial image enhancements other imagers perform.
Read on to see how FieldBrite XT2 delivers consistent results.
When compared to film or other imagers, the Odyssey Fc exhibits a wider linear dynamic range (over 6 logs). Although film and other imagers count an additive number of photons from your blot, the Odyssey Fc measures the rate of photon detection. This superior detection method allows the Odyssey Fc to effectively reject noise.
