Main Features
  • Capture superior images with the 8.3 megapixel high resolution, high sensitivity cooled CCD camera
  • Motorized optics for setting the aperture, zoom and focus
  • Automated templates for repeat experiments
  • Light tight darkroom creates optimum imaging conditions
  • Unique viewing window blocks UV for quick sample inspection
  • Built-in overhead white light and UV are easily selected from the software interface
  • Automated control of the five-position emission filter array
  • Easy access white light illuminator for imaging Coomassie blue or silver stained media
  • Roll-out tray provides easy access to the UV transilluminator
  • Chemi tray fits over the white light plate or UV transilluminator for placement of blots
  • Select from several benchtop, patented and awarding winning transilluminator models (configured with system or optional)
  • VisionWorksLS and VisionWorks 2D Software (configured with system or optional)
  • Accessibility ports built-in for the BioLite(fiber optic multispectral source) as an optional component
  • In addition to 2D imaging, the system can be used for 1D fluorescent and colorimetric imaging as well as chemiluminescent imaging


  • White light illuminator for visualizing samples such as Coomassie blue or silver stained media; operate the white light via the software interface
  • Store the white light plate in the side pocket of the BioSpectrum when not in use
  • To use the transilluminator, slide the transilluminator out on the sliding tray and place samples on the filter surface
  • To fluoresce samples in the 460-470mm range, place the optional Visi-Blue Plate over the transilluminator surface
VisionWorks 2D Analysis Software
