BMB Section seminar: "LI-COR technology - Near-Infrared detection of proteins"
Esben Poulsen, PhD, Field Application Scientist, LI-COR
For more than 30 years, traditional chemiluminescent detection has provided western blot data that has been published by scientists worldwide. Over the past decade, LI-COR has developed infrared (IR) fluorescent technology with optimised reagents for IR laser-based instrumentation to revolutionise protein detection methodology. This technology has become the scientific standard for quantitative Western blots and it has eliminated the need for enzymatically based detection. LI-COR uses its expertise in optics and laser technology to provide methods for both chemiluminescent and IR protein detection.
The Odyssey CLx Infrared Imaging System offers the next generation of Odyssey imaging technology. It is the most versatile Odyssey system for numerous applications in proteomic research and it represents the most trusted and established standard in quantitative Western blot technology. The Odyssey Fc is a laser based imaging system which advances Western blot technology by combining the rich history of chemiluminescence with the power and sensitivity of the LI-COR FieldBrite™ XT optical system for exceptional dual-mode detection for both chemiluminescent and infrared fluorescent imaging.
