Odyssey: Infrared Imaging System
shared biology equipment
The Odyssey® Infrared Imaging System introduces a new standard for Western blot analysis – direct infrared fluorescence detection. Infrared detection gives you the quantitative analysis and wide linear dynamic range that the old paradigms of chemiluminescence and visible fluorescence can’t. Strong and weak bands on the same blot are accurately detected without the uncertainty and inconvenience of multiple exposures, and without spending time in the darkroom.
The Odyssey System gives you clear, sharp, reproducible bands without fuzziness or "blowout". Bands hidden by overexposure with chemiluminescence become clear when imaged with Odyssey.
Odyssey infrared imaging has several applications some of those are listed:
1) Two-color Western Blots*
2) Protein Phosphorylation
3) Infrared EMSA Analysis
4) Coomassie/ 2-D Gel documentation
5) In vivo imaging
6) In-cell Westerns
7) Two-color in-gel westerns
8) Northern blots
The Odyssey infrared imaging system is located in rm. 450. For questions, please contact Dr. Laura Hake.
