UVP ChemStudio touch uses VisionWorks® software, which ensures strong analysis of results every time.
VisionWorks® features automation using preset and preloaded application templates for commonly used experiments such as chemiluminescence, fluorescence, and visible fluorescence.
Flexibility for the user to switch between modes by being able to create one-click application icons. User can switch from picture to full-control mode in one-click.
Software allows complex workflows to be reduced by allowing users to automate many actions into one single application through the use of macros.
Each user can designate a password to store and protect data in a busy research environment.
Enhancement and analysis tools are included that allow researchers to personalize their experiments for any special purpose. Tools offered: background subtraction, noise reduction, inversion, compositing, pseudocolor, and more.
Software also comes with extended analytical tools: 1D analysis, area density and colony counting analysis. Reports are created showing extensive analysis of results including Molecular Weight (MW), Rf, band intensities and area density calculations. Data can be exported to Excel.
Large and visible icons on the VisionWorks® touch Software, increases accessibility for an improved and efficient workflow.
This software is flexible as it can be used both in a stand-alone and or external style. As a result, the imager comes with unlimited copies of the software for external use as well.
Advanced technical specifications and capabilities
High resolution and light sensitivity is achieved with an 8.1 megapixel camera and an f/0.95 lens for maximum light capture and quick exposure speeds. Light sensitivity is optimized with an f/0.95 lens, for quick capture in low-light and long exposure applications. The imagers are also available with an economical 4.1 MP camera. The UVP ChemStudio touch can be expanded to perform a wide range of applications with the addition of accessories and lighting filters.
In addition to standard LEDS for overhead white and blue excitation, the system is designed for field upgrades to add red and green LEDs for multiplex applications such as IR1, and IR2. Furthermore, UVP Visi-White™ LED Plates are easily plugged in, for methods such as Coomassie blue and Silver Stains. Finally you can use a UVP Visi-Blue™ Converter Plate for blue excitation applications, including GelGreen and SYBR Green (460-470nm). Imager is compatible with UVP eLITE Light Source for overhead excitation for 400-800nm wavelengths. This accessory uses a Xenon light engine technology, for uniform and high-intensity lighting, across the full range of Technicolor applications.
The integrated 13.3 inch, wide touch-screen computer, allows clear visuals of faint bands and finer details of images. It makes multi-tasking is easier to perform on a wide screen, requiring multiple windows and files. The Computer support a large range of applications like DNA gels, protein gels, blue/white gels, plants, colorimetric, and colony plates. In addition, imaging device can be utilized for chemiluminescent western blots, fluorescent western blots from 250 to 800 nm in UV/VIS, UV, and NIR. Efficiently, a software controlled five-position filter wheel, in a slide-out tray, allows for simple changeover, to various emission wavelengths.
Additionally, the computer has 500GB of hardware capacity to store large amounts of images, application presets and data. For your convenience, there are 7 USB ports available for the use of keyboard, mouse and other optional accessories plus a stylus is included for simple and precise control. The imager is environment-friendly due to its small footprint and compact form to maximize the use of laboratory space. The ChemStudio touch provides a wide illuminated imaging area of 16.8 x 21cm that allows imaging of multiple blots, of various sizes. It features a fold-down door which provides space reduction and avoids benchtop interferences. Predominantly, all lighting and controls are software automated, reducing error and increasing laboratory efficiency.
The darkroom features a Thin-Line Transilluminator in a slide-out tray, with uniform and high-intensity UV lighting in a compact form. The Thin-Line Transilluminator is designed with long-life UV lamps, for minimum service requirements, independent from the number of times the Transilluminator is turned on/off. Thin UV lamp technology is instant-on which reduces warm-up time to almost zero. For safety, a UV intensity switch “low/high” is included for optimal radiation for documentation or for preparative work.
Finally, image capture and enhancement is also automated with application based icons, for quick selection of various gel and blot applications. For simplicity, custom application icons can be created for particular research needs. This ensures that a large range of application settings be saved for various researchers performing experiments on one imaging system.
