LINCOLN, Neb., Aug. 11 /PRNewswire/ -- LI-COR Biosciences announces an updated Infrared Fluorescent Products Guide offering accessories and reagent products including infrared-labeled secondary antibodies, protein labeling kits, Western blotting kits, In-Cell Western(TM) assay kits, Western blotting buffers, and protein stains. The guide includes application notes on improving quantification accuracy on Western Blots, technology and optical agent information for near-infrared molecular imaging and application guides for a variety of infrared imaging applications. A download version is available at http://www.licor.com/bio
New products include the MPX Blotting System that creates up to 24 independent channels on a single blot for chemiluminescence, colorimetric, and infrared imaging applications. The MPX can be incorporated into a variety of assays including primary and secondary antibody screening, monoclonal antibody screening, signal transduction pathway analysis, and time course studies. However, it is possible to adapt nearly all common Western procedures that generate a PVDF or Nitrocellulose blot of 7 x 8.5 cm to the MPX format.
The new Pearl(TM) In Vivo Small Animal Imaging system is optimized for use with LI-COR IRDye Infrared Dyes and offers superior results with one-touch image acquisition in less than 30 seconds. The Pearl Imager features a compact footprint (16" x 16" x 25") ideal for space-conscious labs and portability.
The Pearl Imager joins LI-COR's line up of imaging systems for DNA, small animal, and proteomic research including the Odyssey Imaging System and MousePOD, which also offers researchers a cost-effective approach to in vivo small animal imaging.
