Octoplus QPLEX Imager

Octoplus QPLEX

Octoplus QPLEX acquires large size images of multifluorescent objects such as 2D gels and 2D blots within 20-30 seconds. Sensitivity of fluorescence detection of the Octoplus QPLEX is almost similar to fluorescence scanners. In addition, sensitive chemiluminescence detection enables combined analysis of fluorescence and ECL. Recommended for applications such as Refraction-2D, Saturn-2D, Saturn-2D REDOX, other 2D-DIGE applications as well as HCP analysis.

Product features

  • •  high power 4-color (RGB + NIR) multiplex fluorescence detection system. Almost the same sensitivity as laser scanners but 30x faster.
  • •  homogenous fluorescence and chemiluminescence detection of gels and blots size up to 250 mm (width) and 200 mm (depth).
  • •  robust system with easy and intuitive handling, requires minimal training
  • •  Made in Germany
