LI-COR(R) Biosciences Introduces New Tools for High Throughput Western Blotting

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 for standard-setting innovation in plant science research and environmental monitoring. Founded in 1971, the privately held company is based in Lincoln, Nebraska, with subsidiaries in Germany and the United Kingdom. LI-COR systems are used in over 100 countries and are supported by a global network of distributors. More information at
