The GE Healthcare Typhoon 9400 allows sensitive detection and quantitation of fluorescent macromolecules in gel sandwiches, agarose and polyacrylamide gels, membranes, and microplates.

With four laser excitation sources and a large range of emission filters the typhoon is compatible with most fluorescent dyes. The Typhoon also images storage phosphor screens after exposure to radioisotope-labeled samples or electron scattering.

The typhoon can scan multiple fluorophores to create multiplex images. In the ImageQuant data analysis software these multiplex images can be used to determine colocalization of various fluorsecent signals within a gel or blot.

Scan  area:  up to 35 × 43 cm
