LINCOLN, Neb., June 19 /PRNewswire/ -- LI-COR Biosciences introduces a new accessory, MPX(TM) (Multiplex) Blotting System, for its Quantitative Western Blotting product line. The MPX System can be incorporated into a variety of assays including primary and secondary antibody screening, monoclonal antibody screening, signal transduction pathway analysis, or any other common Western blotting procedure that generates a PVDF or nitrocellulose blot of 7 x 8.5 cm.
Processing is as simple as clamping the blot into the MPX System, creating up to 24 independent channels. Channel ports are low volume, conveniently spaced, and staggered and beveled for use with multi-channel pipettes. Other advantages include no cross contamination or cross reactivity between channels.
LI-COR's selection of IRDye(R) infrared dyes on the Odyssey(R) Infrared Imaging System provides a maximum of 48 targets on a single membrane -- two per channel, and the option for quantitative analysis. Standard chemiluminescence and colorimetric detection methods can also be used, and can provide a maximum of 24 targets.
The Odyssey Infrared Imaging System is uniquely equipped with two infrared channels for direct fluorescence detection with high sensitivity and low biological background fluorescence. The superior signal to noise ratio produced using near-infrared dyes produces results not previously possible with visible fluorescence-based imaging systems.
LI-COR(R) Biosciences is a leading manufacturer of near-infrared
imaging platforms, analysis software, and LI-COR IRDye(R) infrared dye
reagents for genomic, proteomic, and molecular imaging applications. LI-COR
pioneered the development of near-infrared fluorescence detection systems
for DNA sequencing and today provides systems for drug discovery, protein
research, small animal imaging, and undergraduate training. LI-COR
instruments for photosynthesis, carbon dioxide analysis and light
measurement are recognized worldwide
