The STORM 860 phosphorimager/fluorimager has three image detection modes:
- Phosphor Screen Mode
- Red/Blue Fluorescence
You can use screens for 14C, 32P, 33P, 35S, and 125I. 3H sensitive screens can also be purchased.
The STORM is also a two-color (blue and red excitation) fluorescence imager, which opens up many new possibilities for quantitative analyses:
- Quantitative westerns by chemifluorescence.
- Nonradioactive gel mobility shift experiments, in which two different species can both be separately detected and quantified.
- Fluorescent dyes for quantitative versions of coomassie staining
Software provided: ImageQuant software (so you can analyze your data back in your own lab).
