Typhoon FLA7000 IP Phosphoimager
The Typhoon Phosphoimager is a fast and versatile laser scanner for sensitive and quantitative measurements of radio-isotropic-labeled samples. The Typhoon is a nonconfocal variable mode laser scanner offering high-speed and resolution for precise quantitation of proteins, nucleic acids and other biomolecules. The scanner comprises "filmless" autoradiography with storage phosphor screens. The laser can generate 16-bit images at up to 25 μm pixel resolution to give precise quantitation in gels and blots, with a high speed to scan gels of up to 240 x 250 mm in less than 2 min. Two phosphor screens with a size of 200 X 250 mm are available for autoradiography. The Typhoon scanner can detect a broad range of isotopes in radiolabeled samples (e.g. 3H, 14C, 32P, 33P, 35S). Directly adjacent to the phosphoimager system, there is a computer with a software package that allows on-site quantitative and qualitative analysis of images and data.
