ImageQuant 800


The ImageQuant 800 Fluor system is used to document gels.  Using a 16-Bit, 8.3 megapixel camera, Fujifilm F 0.74 lens, filters, and transmitted and epi-illumination this system is ideally suited for chemiluminescence, fluorescence, and transmitted light imaging.

The following fluorescence filters are available: Cy2: 525BP20 Cy3 (UV): 605BP40 Cy5: 705BP40 IR short: 715BP30 IR long: 836BP46.

The following light sources are available: Epi-blue: 460 nm Epi-green: 535 nm Epi-red: 635 nm Epi-IR short: 660 nm Epi-IR long: 775 nm Epi-UV: 360 nm Epi-white: 470 to 656 nm
