Use the ChemiDoc Imaging System for flexible, high-sensitivity multiplex fluorescent and chemiluminescence western blot detection, imaging gels, analysis, and documentation. The versatile system can perform a wide range of blotting applications including stain-free technology, chemiluminescent detection, ethidium bromide, SYPRO Ruby, Coomassie and silver stains.

This system can easily be upgraded to obtain the expanded fluorescence capability of the ChemiDoc MP System (17001402) with the ChemiDoc to ChemiDoc MP Upgade Kit (12003263).

Features and Benefits

  • Efficient workflow — get rapid results with the ability to validate each step
  • High performance imaging and analysis — combined sensitivity with comprehensive analysis and documentation
  • Fluorescence imaging capabilities can be extended — as needs and techniques change, the ChemiDoc Imaging System can be upgraded to encompass RGB, far red, and near infrared, with the fluorescence upgrade package
  • Stain-free imaging enabled — get a gel image in 5 min without staining and destaining. Quantitate by total protein and normalization
  • Easy to use — intuitive touch-screen user interface, automatic selection of optimal light source by application, auto focus, auto exposure, and preview features
