Who's Using It?
Instead of getting two or three different instruments for imaging Western blots, agarose gels, SDS-PAGE gels, and other assays, we purchased a single instrument that can be used for all of these applications.
It was a lot of hassle to do Western blots before we got the Odyssey® Fc because we didn’t always know what we were going to get… and then judging the intensity, how long do you leave the film on, that was always a problem.
We do not have darkrooms in our new facility. We are definitely moving away from them, and it makes sense from an environmental and cost-efficiency standpoint.
Students can use the instrument for analysis of both Western blots and DNA gels, so we don’t have to have two separate systems.
