The Biorad ChemiDoc MP Touch Imaging System is an advanced, versatile instrument designed for imaging and analysis of gels and blots. It supports a wide range of applications including multiplex fluorescent western blotting, chemiluminescence detection, and general gel documentation. This system stands out for its capability to handle fluorescence, chemiluminescence, and colorimetric gel and blot detection, analysis, and documentation in a single platform. It is particularly adept at using a broad spectrum of fluorescent reporters including RGB, far red, and near infrared, alongside Bio-Rad's StarBright Fluorophores. Key features include ease of use with automatic light source selection, autofocus, auto exposure, and image preview functions, coupled with a comprehensive on-screen help guide. The system's stain-free technology allows for the normalization of bands to total protein, thus eliminating the need for housekeeping proteins. It also enables rapid assessment of electrophoresis and blot transfer quality before processing.
