GE Healthcare has added two new imagers to their family of biomolecular imaging systems, the Typhoon FLA 9500 for imaging of multifluorescent-, chemifluorescent-, radioisotope-labeled, and colorimetric samples and the Typhoon FLA 7000 IP for the dedicated study of radioisotope labeled samples.

The Typhoon FLA 9500 is a versatile, high throughput, laser scanner ideally suited to a multiuser environment. With a pixel resolution of up to 10 ìm and a linear signal response, over five orders of magnitude, the system provides precise quantitation in gels, blots, tissue sections and arrays.

A scanning area of 40 x 46 cm enables simultaneous imaging of 20 samples facilitating comparison of blots, reducing workload and waiting time.

The FLA 9500 can concurrently image two 2-D DIGE gels for differential expression studies and has optional near infrared excitation for imaging IRDye™ and other infra-red dyes.

The Typhoon 7000 IP is an entry level scanner that enables high speed, sensitive detection and quantitation of radioisotope labeled samples.

The model can scan over 10 image plates in an hour, generating 16-bit images at up to 25 ìm pixel resolution using storage phosphor screen technology.

With identical function to the Typhoon FLA 7000, upgrade paths for fluorescent capabilities are also available.

Validation support for the systems in GXP environments are available, with Installation Qualification and Operation Qualification (IQ/OQ) performed on-site by trained GE Healthcare service engineers.
