BIO-5000 Plus VIS Gel Scanner

The BIO-5000 Plus VIS Gel Scanner is a dual platform scanner specially designed for scanning of electrophoresis gels and blots by visual detection. It is equipped with energy-saving LEDs and an optical CCD whose resolution is up to 4,800 dpi. The range of the optical density is between 0.05 and 3.77 OD providing a smarter way to capture differences among each layer of scanned electrophoresis gels.
With a built-in auto-focus function, BIO-5000 Plus is capable of shifting the focal length to the best position automatically for images of top quality. By the design of the Emulsion Direct Image Technology (E.D.I.T.) and holders for electrophoresis gels, it is convenient to put your BIO-5000 Plus in operation and lowers the risk of mutual infection in experiments. Therefore, BIO-5000 Plus is the best choice of scanning electrophoresis gels.
