The Keck Biophysics Facility provides access to a full range of fluorescence and phosphor imaging instruments for documentation and quantitative analysis.
LAS 4010 Gel Imaging System
The GE Healthcare ImageQuant LAS 4010 gel imaging system allows visualization, imaging and quantitative measurements of macromolecules in stained gels.
The Molecular Dynamics (GE Healthcare) Storm 860 phosphoimager images storage phosphor screens after exposure to radioisotope-labeled samples or electron scattering.
The GE Healthcare Typhoon 9400 allows sensitive detection and quantitation of fluorescent macromolecules in gel sandwiches, agarose and polyacrylamide gels, membranes, and microplates.
Chemiluminescence & IR Imager
The Syngene PXi system offers fully automated capture and comprehensive analysis of chemiluminescent and fluorescent blots and gels.
Real Time PCR
The Bio-Rad iCycler collects and reports PCR amplification and denaturation data in real-time.
The Labcono FreeZone 4.5 Liter Cascade Benchtop Freeze Dry System is designed for light sample loads with low eutectic points including ones containing acetonitrile.
Isoelectric Focusing Cell
The Bio Rad PROTEAN isoelectric focusing cell is used with immobilized pH gradient strips to perform the first dimension separation in a 2-D gel electrophoresis experiment.
